Beautiful bay ringed by beaches and surrounded by mountains with spectacular views of the sunset over the Pacific ocean.

Zihua is full of options. Not only is it beautiful but there are 4 beaches, several piers, an abundance of restaurants and spectacular views. If you want to go somewhere that isn't so 'touristy' where you can experience the authenticity and best of Mexico, then Zihua is the place. La Ropa and Las Gatas are two of the best beaches... More

Zihuatanejo Bay is surrounded by many lovely beaches, all open to the public. Shuttle boats take swimmers from the Zihuatanejo pier to Playa Las Gatas for swimming and snorkeling. Many hotels and restaurants overlook the bay, to take advantage of romantic sunsets.

stroll along La Ropa in the evening as the sun sets or better still a margarita at on of the local beach cafes or spoil yourself at the bar in the Catalina hotel. What a view as the sun sets over the bay. There are always small boats moving in the bay - fishermen, pangas going to and from Las... More

Zihuatanejo Bay is simply gorgeous! If you love fishing this is the place for you. It gives you a glimpse into the past of what a Mexican fishing village may have looked like years ago. However, if you don't fish..it is a good place to just do nothing...as there isn't much to do in the way of excursions or attractions.... More

Zihua is a great experience away from the high rise hotel strips. It's like a fishing village that has become a tourist attraction. But they keep it from developing out of its low key character.

This is our favorite place to sit and watch the fishermen bring in their catches of the day. Visiting all the great people that you meet on the pier. It is just as nice in the early morning as later in the evening. Very serene and quiet.

We took the tour bus to the bay, where we boarded the Picante catamaran. Captain Tony pointed out the many sights of the area, naming hotels. The only thing that was a bit scary is the very narrow road down the last short distance to the pier. All in all a wonderful time was had by myself and friends.
