A special spot on the Pacific coast of Mexico

Zihuatanejo is stlll a fishing port - perhaps too big now to be called a village, though - that retains much of the charm of the real Mexico, despite that fact that the mega-resort area of Ixtapa is right next door with it's high-rise hotels, golf courses and upscale Marina. Located north of Acapulco in the state of Guerrero, Zihuatanejo has recently become very well known and a surfing destination as well as being a fine spot for other watersports such as snorkeling and skin diving, sailing and excellent sport fishing for catches that include sailfish, marlin, tuna and mahi-mahi.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Excellent weather, gorgeous natural setting, small-town atomsphere retained
  • Cons:Is getting a bit too crowded now that more people know about it!
  • In a nutshell:I've lived here for many years and still love it....!
