Zihuatanejo combines Mexican culture, wonderful nature and old-fashioned charm. This picturesque fishing town is a unique beach destination and the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the best in life. Many of you might remember Zihuatanejo from the all-time movie success, Shawshank Redemption. This is the place where the two characters decide to meet after their release. With Ixtapa only a few kilometres away you get a two-for-one deal coming here, combining the traditional, calm Zihuatanejo and the modern Ixtapa.
