Many guests find it enough to kick back with a good book or spend time in simple contemplation of the beauty in the waves and sunsets or in just walking the empty beach or swimming in the gentle waves and warm water.
For others, there is plenty to do: kayaking, boogie boarding, boat trips, fishing from shore or by boat, a snorkel adventure by boat, bird watching in the lagoon or the salt flats. If your timing is lucky you could see humpback whales breaching just offshore or get to release sea turtle hatchlings at sunset.
The new wildlife sanctuary, El Refugio de Potosi, is a five minute ride away. But you won’t have to leave the property to see lots of nature. This website: 71 Things To See At Playa Blanca will give you an idea of some of the birds, plants and butterflies in the area. Don Otto’s site Barra-de-Potosi.info also is a great source of information.
The twin resorts of Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa are thirty minutes away. In Zihuatanejo you can stroll along the boardwalk, visit the artisans market or shop in the local stores. Deep sea fishing trips for sailfish, dorado and marlin are also available.
Ixtapa boasts two 18 hole public golf courses including Palma Real designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. A trip to Ixtapa also offers the opportunity for an eco-tour and the Dolfinarium where you can swim with dolphins.
Both Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa offer extensive nightlife bars and restaurants. If surfing is your sport, there are various day trip opportunities including the Ranch, Troncones, Playa Linda and Saladita. Near Barra de Potosi there is an archeological site, a pristine lagoon and miles of completely primal beach.
