Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are a family from Canmore, Alberta Canada. This condo has been in our family for about 10 years. Every winter we visit Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and have absolutely fallen in love with the area and people.

Why the Owner Chose Ixtapa, Gro., Mexico:
After owning a condo in another nearby complex, we soon realized that we wanted to purchase in the Amara. It is central to the beach and town and is situated on what we think is the most beautiful beach in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Being on the 3rd floor affords a fantastic view of the ocean through the palm trees and gardens, and you also have the option of taking the stairs or the elevator. It's family friendly and close to so many great restaurants, bars etc.
