Zihua is full of options. Not only is it beautiful but there are 4 beaches, several piers, an abundance of restaurants and spectacular views. If you want to go somewhere that isn't so 'touristy' where you can experience the authenticity and best of Mexico, then Zihua is the place. La Ropa and Las Gatas are two of the best beaches anywhere. Pull up a lounger and hang out all day. Swim in the clear, calm ocean water. Jetski, fish, parasail and snorkel there. Catch the bus for 6 pesos.

Zihuatanejo Bay is surrounded by many lovely beaches, all open to the public. Shuttle boats take swimmers from the Zihuatanejo pier to Playa Las Gatas for swimming and snorkeling. Many hotels and restaurants overlook the bay, to take advantage of romantic sunsets.

stroll along La Ropa in the evening as the sun sets or better still a margarita at on of the local beach cafes or spoil yourself at the bar in the Catalina hotel. What a view as the sun sets over the bay. There are always small boats moving in the bay - fishermen, pangas going to and from Las Gatas and sailboats. This has no be one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The beaches are appealing just as they look in the brochures.

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.)
