Zihuatanejo Airport (ZIH) is 25 minutes away from the resort. There are daily direct flights from LAX (Alaska Airlines), San Francisco (United Airlines), and Tijuana (Volaris). Sports Fest runs a complimentary airport transfer shuttle for all participants.

Unfortunately, the tournament structure makes it impossible to compete in multiple tournaments as there is significant overlap between events.

Absolutely. If you wish to attend Sports Fest as a spectator you can participate in all activities without registering for a tournament.

Ixtapa does not typically see a lot of rain in April. In the unlikely event of significant rain, our Tournament Director will adjust the match schedule and tournament format to finish all matches safely. This may result in shorter sets and fewer points.

Absolutely! Children can attend Sports Fest as spectators for a discounted rate. Kids aged 4+ can participate in the resort’s Kids Club.

An infirmary at the resort provides 24-hour assistance and deals with most minor injuries and illnesses. If you are dealing with a more urgent situation, the resort can coordinate care with local clinics and hospitals.

Developed by a high-caliber team of professionals with experience directing ATP events, WTA events, and other top tourneys, the tournaments at Sports Fest Ixtapa 2024 are designed to replicate the professional experience.

The soccer tournament is structured like the world cup, with a group stage and a knockout stage. The tennis and pickleball tournaments include a group round-robin stage leading to a finals draw.
