Sailing Time - Tonatiuh

Sailing Time

Navigation and time keeping are two fascinating subjects that, at some point, joined together and became accomplices. Astronomy was the first significant ally of navigators, because since 1620, with the help of astrolabes and other gadgets, the height of the North Star allowed sailors to calculate the North-South position (latitude) of their boat within an acceptable range.

COMPASS MX
Ixtapa - Araceli Cano

Ixtapa

Unlike other Mexican travel destinations, when we mention Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo we are referring to two cities that are very different both physically and in their lifestyles. This means that when you visit Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo you visit two destinations in one.

Fascinating Marine World - Araceli Cano

Fascinating Marine World

To speak of the binomial Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo beach means talking about the warmth and clarity of the waters that invite adventurous travelers to be awed by the world beneath the sea, which contains the most biologically diverse corral reef on the Pacific Coast of the Americas.

This megayacht has every comfort imaginable, even more than most mansions. Above all, it has all the space needed to satisfy every whim and desire of the navigator. It was a little over a year ago that the Lürssen Queen M set out on its maiden voyage on the Nordic seas.

Azimut 865

One of the most famous yacht builders presents a boat that can be described in one word: exquisite. The reason is that Azimut has focused on exclusivity, beauty, clean lines, equipment, design and décor… in other words, every important detail needed in a yacht.

Lagoon Power 43

When speaking about motor yachts, a catamaran, with a double hull, would not seem to be a likely possibility. Lagoon not only offers sailboats but also this motorized vessel with a length of a bit over 13 m (42’ 9’’ ft).

An Angler’s Dream - AMURA

An Angler’s Dream

Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo confirms the adage that says that this is “a secret place for fishing buffs” since it is considered one of the three best sports fishing grounds in the world. It is special because there are abundant species like swordfish, pompano and shark, just to name a few.

Traveling in Style

If trips in private jets are characterized by their exclusivity, privacy, comfort, elegance and personal, specialized attention, the commercial airlines are not far behind and offer services that have the same characteristics that we know of as FIRST CLASS. The planes are usually the same, but what makes the difference in long trips is the service on board.

TASTERS
Tequila - Georgina Estrada, sommelier del restaurante Le Cirque, Ciudad de México

Tequila

Tequila is the Mexican drink par excellence and is, of course, Mexico’s most famous ambassador. To demonstrate the influence of our country and its beverage, we only have to remember that, at the close of 1994, Mexico suffered another of its financial crisis, which not only affected our nation but many others, as well.

Mahsuri, Carcosa Seri Negara

The sky is clear and the stars are shining, just like the towers of Kuala Lampur, and the elegant table, beautifully set on the terrace, is aglow with the light from silver candlesticks. A romantic scene in a colonial setting: the gardens of what at one time was the guesthouse of English governor Frank Swettenham.
