We stayed at at a hotel that had a beautiful view of the Zihua bay. Its small and compact and oh so pretty. Sailboats, yachts, rock island, lights on the hill at night. We traveled on the bay on a sailboat as well as a ponga, and it was delightful.

This beach is approximately 10 minute walk away from my hotel. It has numerous restaurants and vendors. The sunset was not great. On Sunday around the basketball court there are food vendors and sellers of various things.

We spent a couple of days eating, shopping and fishing in "Z" Was great to eat at some of the restaurants and see all the shops in the area. I found the prices the least expensive to buy your hats and shirts in Zihhutanejo shopping area. The restaurants are great, the prices are soooo unbelievably cheap! The whole area is... More

We have stayed in north Ixtapa and now at the Zihu Bay. We will take the Bay anytime. We like being able to walk to and from our hotel in the area and enjoyed seeing the markets and trying out the different restaurants. There is so much to see and or just relax and not do anything but sit on... More

The views of this bay are fabulous day or night...that is what makes it stand out as one of the most beautiful views ever. At night, the town looks like a bowl of jewels. During the day, you can see various hills, and mountain ranges behind the town as well as the incredible coastline of cliffs and inlets. It's worth... More

I am in love with this place. I was prepared to be disappointed since I used to visit Zihua in the 1970s when this was a small fishing village with few tourists. But, I am still loving Zihua. Sure, it is huge now, bustling with many loud Americanos, but the place and the people that live here are as lovely... More

Nice to go down to the mariana and walk along the little seawall. Take you time and stop and the watering holes along the way.

If you want big, high-rise hotels and fancy shops, go to Ixtapa. If you want to kick back and relax, eat the best guacamole in the world and soak in the Mexican culture, rent at place on Zihuatanejo Bay. We stay at Playa Medera, a pleasurable fifteen minute walk along the bay into town and markets. Pick just about any... More
