My wife and I discovered this area 19 years ago and have been back 10 times since: this is our eight year in a row. We instantly fell in love with Zihuatanejo.

You could sit at your favourite restaurant and watch the antics of the day. Fisherman, dogs, marketers, artists, tourists!

The view was outstanding from our hotel room. It was fun watching the boats come and go. The lights of the town and pier was beautiful.
