Traditional charms & cosmopolitan pleasures
Since its humble beginnings as a fishing village, Zihuatanejo has grown into a popular destination, yet still maintains its charms and traditional Mexican town atmosphere. Its ring of beautiful beaches and Zihuatanejo Bay make for great snorkeling, sailing, water skiing, with sport fishing being a major attraction.
Meander along the brick-paved “fisherman’s walk” that stretches along the town center, or enjoy local fare and beverages at one of the many restaurants and cafés overlooking the beach.
If you’re looking for a faster-paced day (or night) on the town, double your Mexican pleasure by visiting the more cosmopolitan Ixtapa, located just a few miles north of Zihuatanejo.
This small island just off the coast is well known for its watersports, scuba diving and incredible snorkeling. The calm and shallow water is home to an abundance of fish in all shapes and sizes that live amongst the coral reef just slightly offshore.
