We found cheap tickets from Mexico City in late June 2017, completely unaware that the tourist season was long over. I guess there is a higher risk for hurricanes and bad weather but we had fantastic weather and our hotel owner claimed that is usually...More

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...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...More

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...More

I can't say for sure, but it should be fairly moderate. It should be great for swimming and taking siestas.
