Lovely bay.

Great people, location, hotel, activities, food. Weather was wonderful and always warm. Little humidity. Take twice as much sunscreen and half the clothes!

Had many options to do.Had some good bars to go to including a swim up to bar that I liked. Was able to find a boat so I could go sailfishing and wow was it it fun. I caught a sailfish that was almost 8 foot long. Had a great time.

The bay looks amazing at night fall and if you wake up early its refreshing to walk or jog along the beach.

Go to Bananas Cafe for breakfast. Walk a block to the sea wall and walk back on the Sea Wall Walk to Casa Sandbar. Worth doing.

This is truly traditional Mexico at its best. Safe, wonderful people, and beautiful views (especially at night), Zihua Bay is a place to remember!

I post this because a saw an expired question about the situation of 'parque el limon' an ecological reserve between zihutanejo and ixtapa. He asked about the status of the park. Well the goberment had been in some troubles to put some order in there. So its kind of abandoned as a turistic experience. But still been a good place... More

Skip Ixtapa. Stay in one of the hotels along Madera Beach. Better pricing; a very quick and scenic walk into the town. Hard to beat.

The place, as advertised, is a fishing village located in a protected bay. Therefore, there may be occasional swells from the Pacific, but, usually the water is calm. There are various water sports available, such as fishing, sailing, and paddle boarding, para-sailing, rental of Kayaks, etc., and more.
