Fun little fishing village with lots of fun places to eat at and have cocktails! The " festivals" on Sunday nights are a lot of fun to interact with the locals and they have awesome food vendors that serve awesome food. We are never afraid to eat from vendors there!

We keep going back! Zihuatanejo first charmed us 19 years ago and can't stay away. Great fun wandering the streets and the shops. Good restaurants!

We took a cruise of the bay and Ixtapa. The scenery was very nice. Incredible sunset surrounded by mountains. On land there are numerous vendors selling a variety of items. There are lots of restaurants in the area.

I love to walk Playa del ropa and swim in the water there. The seawall walk into town is also lovely and its fun to go to fisherman's wharf early in the morning to see what the catch has been.

A lovely place for spending a few days at the beach. Has the flavor of traditional beaches in Mexico, before mega hotel corporations dominated much of Mexico's coastlines.

Playa la Ropa is a nice long beach for great walks and dips in the sea. Reasonably priced activities like parasailing, kayaking, paddle boards, and jet skis.

The people in Zihautanejo are very friendly! We talked to many travelers that are frequent return visitors. Mostly Canadian and retired. The streets of Zihautanejo were extremely clean!
