We left our resort and flagged down a city bus. Took us 20 minutes into Zihuatanejo for only 18 pesos each. Then after spending many hours downtown we took a shuttle bus to Commercial Mexicani. Only 8 pesos each. It was a lot of fun and very safe travelling like the locals. Ate some street food that tasted great.

At the end of the tourism season, still a lot of activities in downtown Zihua. The commercial zone is to be seen. If you only come for the tan it is still the location. Ixtapa is about 20 minutez max from Zihua for 160$Mx (+-10$CAD). Our stay is too short to explore further. Next trip. Warning for the techno: cell... More

This picture looks exactly like the bay does, night after night. It's an amazing place to visit. Warm climate, slow pace, and very friendly people who are appreciative you are there as tourists. The water is warm to wade or boogie board and snorkel and if you can get to Las Gatas beach by boat or walking, you can rent... More

This is the fourth location I have visited in Mexico. My favorite so far. It is as if the clock is in slow motion and time suspended or in neutral compared to other places. Entire place was clean and laid back. Vendors were not aggressive and friendly. The entire atmosphere was special and I felt truly relaxed and as though... More

Lovely setting in a very laid back resort. Pleasant walk along the Playa del Pescador. Very interesting watching the fishermen selling their catch on the beach. Inhabitants very friendly and helpful.

We have been coming to Zihuatanejo for 10 years now and always have a view overlooking the beautiful bay. We never tire of looking at it. The beaches are wonderful and the perfect size for walking, playing, swimming or just lazing around soaking up some sun. It's our happy place.

My pick after visiting many Mexican beach cities. Not exactly a swinging city for millenials. More sedate. Very honest people happy to see and serve tourists. A nice condo is $150K. A killer condo with beach views and access $250K plus. Expect to spend $100 a day to live well. as little as $50 a day if you choose a... More
