“Zihuatanejo Bay”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Zihuatanejo Bay is simply gorgeous! If you love fishing this is the place for you. It gives you a glimpse into the past of what a Mexican fishing village may have looked like years ago.
However, if you don't fish..it is a good place to just do nothing...as there isn't much to do in the way of excursions or attractions. The shopping is not the best, mostly made in China crap.

(Kind of off topic, but their roadside circus is appalling. You walk past it on the way to the beach, and the treatment of the animals is horrendous.)

“Gorgeous and friendly”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Zihua is a great experience away from the high rise hotel strips. It's like a fishing village that has become a tourist attraction. But they keep it from developing out of its low key character.

“Zihua Bay”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is our favorite place to sit and watch the fishermen bring in their catches of the day. Visiting all the great people that you meet on the pier. It is just as nice in the early morning as later in the evening. Very serene and quiet.

“Sunset Cruise”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We took the tour bus to the bay, where we boarded the Picante catamaran. Captain Tony pointed out the many sights of the area, naming hotels. The only thing that was a bit scary is the very narrow road down the last short distance to the pier. All in all a wonderful time was had by myself and friends.
