Sunsets like NONE other!

We have been back to this area many times. We love Zihua and it feels like home. The beauty of the bay is awesome and beyond relaxing to sit and enjoy (with a Pina Colada!).

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.
