Playa Las Gatas
Reachable by rock hopping on rugged shoreline or by boat from the town pier, Playa Las Gatas lies beneath the south end of the Punta El Faro headland. Generally calm and quiet, this secluded shoreline is a haven for snorkeling and scuba diving. Also known as "Nurse Shark Beach," this crystal water shoreline is home to the docile bottom dwelling members of the shark family.
Located along the white sands of Ixtapa, Delfiniti offers guests the opportunity to swim among the playful dolphins. Family members of all ages can have a once in a lifetime encounter with these strong and intelligent mammals of the sea by participating in any one of the five distinct programs.
