Best time to visit Ixtapa:

Winter (December to February): This is a popular time to visit Guerrero, especially coastal areas like Acapulco, due to the mild and dry weather. The temperatures are pleasant, making it suitable for beach activities, water sports, and enjoying the coastal attractions.

Spring (March to May): Spring brings warmer temperatures, and it can be a good time to visit if you prefer the beaches with fewer crowds compared to the peak winter season. It's ideal for water activities and exploring the coast.

Summer (June to August): Summers in Guerrero can be hot and humid. While it's a low tourist season, it might not be the most comfortable time for extensive outdoor activities due to the heat and occasional rainfall.

Autumn (September to November): Autumn can experience increased rainfall, particularly from September to October. While it might not be the best time for beach activities due to the rains, it could be suitable for cultural experiences and inland exploration.

Guerrero, particularly Acapulco, is known for its beaches and resorts, so the best time to visit might revolve around your preferences for beach activities, weather, and the level of tourist crowds. Winter and spring generally offer pleasant temperatures and are popular for beach vacations, while summer might be less crowded but hotter and prone to rainfall.
