"Paradise on Earth" Zihuatanejo by Brehone

Zihuatanejo Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 137 photos


My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Zihuataenjo. Our goal was to choose a beach destination where we could get tan, swim and be lazy! Zihuat was our perfect solution. Our hotel was beautiful, the food was wonderful and the beach was amazing. However, August was an extremely hot month to go! The upscale was that there were actually very few tourists.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:beautiful beaches, no fast food restuarants or anything "Americanized"
  • Cons:Summer months are very hot, nice hotels are a long walk from town.
  • In a nutshell:A very nice place to visit to get the real Mexico experience.

    Looks like you had a great time in Zihua. Not surprising, I was there with my family in May 2002, everyone loved the place. Only surprise is that there are not many more good reviews about Zihuatanejo..maybe I should get started on writing one soon :)
