Where to stay in Zihuatanejo

Look in the narrow streets of the historic center to find a range of affordable, colorful "posadas" (inns), or head uphill to Cerro del Almacen for comfortable condos offering sweeping views over the water. If the larger luxury hotels appeal, cast your eye east of the river to find lavish resorts lining the town's most desirable beaches.
