Everyone should see Zihuatanejo, at least once in their life 💕 It is such a “real” Mexican town (lots of tourism too) but so sincere. I could sit at Daniels on the beach forever!! Please go see it!

Wonderful sunset cruise was a great way to see the bay. Just hanging out on the beach during the days was so relaxing.

This is an attractive well maintained resort where the staff goes out of their way to make your visit a great experience. There is everything u would want from a beach vacation. Out studio unit is perfect in every way.

This view never gets old! I've seen the sunset from every angle of the bay and it's beautiful, night after night. Of course, the bay itself is lovely with its pretty beaches and sailboats and fishing boats floating in and out. The way the buildings...More

Stay out of Ixtapa! The resorts are not my thing. I like authentic travel. You’ll be immersed with Mexican families and tourists from around the world in Zihua and have an authentic and safe holiday.

Great beach with a boardwalk that takes you directly downtown to the market. Easy to get to and from, with a breeze and several shops and restaurants along the way. Lovely!

This is a great area for relaxation, but for people who prefer very active vacations it's not the best place. Not many (if any at all) hiking trails, and hiking in the wild can be risky - tarantulas and snakes were seen on my husband's...More

Definitely one of the prettiest bays with fishing boats pulled up on the beaches (just like in "Shawshank Redemption" ending scene). The local beach restaurants are family affairs with busy tables under cover on the beach with plenty of margaritas, by glass or pitcher (and...More

We stayed in a rented condo at Cass Zih. Beautiful view from the hillside. Great luxury condo with only 6 units and an infinity pool.
