Very beautiful and quaint

Enjoyed walking into the village of Zinuatanejo and watching the local fishermen coming in with the fish they had caught, weighing them and selling them

I have been coming to Zihua since 1986 and I have seen it chance from a nice fishing village to what is is today. By all means visit Zihua

This is the place to go if you want a small town village feel on your vacation. Ixtapa has all this glitz, but Zihua has the authenticity. There is an amazing restaurant on the point and food and drinks for purchase at the palapas. There is really something for everyone here!
