  • Very nice beach, but for our fortune, a day before it rained strong and crocodiles out of the mangrove to visit the sea, haha well as enter went out by the fear of huge crocodiles, them were able to see the waves, although the locals tell us It is normal and that is often the case normally. It recommended the rich coast shark pub food and excellent service.

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.
