Zihuatanejo is the perfect combination of Mexican flair, breathtaking nature, and old-fashioned charm. This picturesque fishing town is a unique beach destination, and the perfect place to relax by the shore and enjoy the fresh sea breeze. With Ixtapa, a more frantic party and resort destination only a few kilometres away, you get a two-for-one deal coming here, combining traditional and laid-back Zihuatanejo, and modern, buzzing Ixtapa.
