Very Authentic village, it is a fishing Village and it was on Shawshank Redemption Movie. It is not Americanized which makes it so much more beautiful than Ixtapa. The food, people and places here are all so amazing you will want to live here after your vacation. I have been visiting for 11 years and love it.

All as want is clean water, wide beaches and some friendly shaded spots top curl up with a good book. If you just want a place to relax and swim punctuated by meandering walks down a beautiful beach this is it.

Playa la Ropa is one of my husband's and my favorite beaches, it is so beautiful and easily to access for swimming and snorkeling. It has so much to offer for activities like kayaking, sailing, ski do, paddle boarding and parasailing. Although we tend to enjoy people watching and walking down the beach for a stroll day or night. It's... More

The largest of the beaches here in Zihua, you have many choices for food and drinks. You can also choose from many beach activities I.e. Parasailing, ski doos, surfing, etc.

Although when you have to be careful as if you do not speak in Spanish some of the locals will try to take more money from you! For example for coconut was 30 pesos but then when it came to paying later at the end I was told to pay 90 pesos because he cut a coconut for me and... More

We were here over New Years and it was busy, but not so jam-packed we weren't able to find a spot and relax. The sun was shining every day, and it was absolutely gorgeous weather in Zihua when we were here. The beach added to the beauty of the days. There are vendors walking along the beach, but all were...

Gorgeous Bay! Beautiful sandy beach, soft sand, no stones, no shelves, no weeds. Small waives and enjoy the warm waters with an amazing sunshine every day! If you're not staying at an hotel on the beach, there are chairs available either for a small price (100 pesos) or la Perla Restaurant, or for free at Elvira Restaurant when you order... More

One of the nicer beaches we've enjoyed in Mexico. Great for walking or running and nice enough to swim in. Good way to start the day and a nice energetic walk into town.

Beautiful clean beach. On a sheltered bay so water is calm (not much for surfing or boogie-boarding). Lots of hotels and restaurants line the shore so you can find refreshment or a lounge chair easily. Water is warm, shallow, and great for soaking!

This beach came highly recommended by folks we meet who have traveled here frequently. As pointed out by others, the restaurant La Perla provided the perfect spot for us to set-up comfortably without burning in the sun. We paid 100 pesos for an umbrella and several chairs for the day. We were able to order food and drinks without pressure.... More
