Less then an hour from Zihua, Barra de Potosi is a small fishing village on the very long and beautiful isolated beach called Playa Blanco. Avi, (aka Sharkboy) grew up in Barra and knows the waters intimately. He will meet you for a half day of touring the waters in his boat - exploring the mangrove channels, birdwatching and learning to fish the traditional way, by casting a net in the shallow waters of the lagoon. What a knowledgeable and friendly host he was, as he shared his world with us.
We paid $450 pesos, or around $35 each for this awesome experience. We had lunch afterward at one of the seafood enramadas on the beach, then on to a tour of the area.
We used the day services of driver and guide Jose Louis to drive us to Barra and show us the countryside. I'll post his tour info separately.

Zihuatanejo is the most beautiful Bay! We have been coming here for the past 10 years and fall in love over and over again! The restaurants, the friendly locals, the shops the beaches and sunsets are all just a small part of the beauty! We loved it so much we built a home here in 2012! You must put Zihuatanejo on your next vacation plan, you won't be sorry!

We stayed on the hill over looking the bay and it is one of the most beautiful views you can have. The sunsets over the bay are just spectacular as you look out to the Pacific ocean. Not to be missed.

One of the nicest views ever! You'll never tire of looking out around the bay. With the town of Zihuatanejo at one end and Playa Los Gatos at the other.
