We flew down to Zihuatanejo for a getaway from the winter weather in Ventura (which turned out to be very nice for this time of year - actually better than summer!), and rented a nice apartment overlooking Playa la Madera for a week!

It came equipped with an outdoor kitchenette which was very handy on those rather warm days, when it was nicer to be outside on the patio than inside! It had a beautiful view of the bay, and the beach could be reached by taking the steps (approx 100!) down, however, coming back up later in the day was quite a workout!

A wonderful, relaxing getaway....

We took a cab to Ixtapa which was about 7 miles away, and found a lovely piano bar called El Faro (lighthouse) with a beautiful view of the islands off Ixtapa. It was a great place to enjoy cocktails and watch sunset.

Still in Ixtapa, we decided to have dinner along the Marina Ixtapa waterfront, and found a restaurant that looked really enticing....

Welcome to El Galeon restaurant, where we had a divine dinner, with excellent service and a wonderful setting!
