Hola Zihua forumites!
We are taking our first trip to Zihua next week! My husband was last there over 25 years ago when he was a kid on his parents sailboat traveling all over Mexico. We both love Cabo (as you can tell), Los Barriles, P.V., Sayulita and surrounding areas, and are excited to stay and play in Zihua. We are traveling with our 9 year old daughter who will eat anything and is happy just to play in the ocean all day, while her parents laze at a beach bar enjoying the sun and some cervezas! We are staying at Casa Que Ve Al Mar, above Playa La Ropa in a beautiful condo!
I have been doing my research here, figuring out the location of restaurants and such. Im not much of a planner but I am a tripadvisor junkie as far as gathering info. on the above. We prefer cheap, tasty taquerias but also appreciate a nicer, splurge meal with a great view too.
I have read and printed out the "great food under $10" list. I have read that the airport isn't too much of a shark tank and to buy a taxi voucher for about 350 pesos inside near the exit. I know that we can walk to town and should most likely take a taxi back up the hill if it is dusk or to avoid a pretty hefty hike in the heat. Get pesos at an ATM either bank or commerical. Any other hot tips anyone wants to share?
A few questions:
Where can you recommend to hang out if we decide to go to Ixtapa for the day? Are there some nice hotels that have a day pass or dont care if you enjoy their chairs if you are buying drinks/food? Or beach bars?
We all like surfing and hope to check out Troncones. Is taking a taxi an advisable way to get there? We can hang out at Mi Casa Es Su Casa in Troncones, if we purchase drinks/food?
I dont have any concerns that will have a great time. I mostly just jumped on here to say hola and see anyone had any other info./tips/ideas...
Looking forward to getting my overdue tan lines back! 4 days until toes in the sand!
