For the past seven years my wife and i have stayed at the Viceroy on Playa la Ropa, which means beach of the clothes. i think it says that because as soon as you see it you want to strip down and hit the water. It is beautiful white sand surrounded by cliffs that are not as overdeveloped as Ixtapa.... More

Live the postcard moment right here! For sun and star gazers, the perfect setting, whether from a private balcony (many to choose from) or from the sportsbar hav'n a "cold 1", it doesn't get any better!

What a great place to enjoy the surf and sun. The vendors have beautiful wares that they sell walking along the shores. The seafood is fresh and local, so wonderful! There are also traveling musicians playing music . I just can't say enough about how friendly everyone is and the food oh so delicious!

Truly our favorite beach, Playa la Ropa. It's stunningly beautiful. Long sandy beach. The sunsets spectacular. The moon & stars light up the night. Restaurants abound. Lots of beach activities. Our home away from home calls to us often.

Hotels, houses and restaurants hug corners of the bay, while vast expanses of cliffs, vegetation, and park interpolate human habitation. The sea brims with life - fish leap, crabs scuttle, pelicans plunge. Though tourists ply the bay on noisy jet skis, and trail behind motorboats on blow... More

Zihuatanejo is a vibrant location with local activities all day and into the evening. The main waterfront offers restaurants and bar's to enjoy. What is especially nice is the local feel and ambiance of Zihua as the locals call Zihuatanejo.
