"Our stay was absolutely wonderful. I knew from the minute we arrived that I would surely come back for another vacation. It will be hard to have to share the place next time! I have traveled to Mexico 10+ times and this was one of my favorite trips. Far exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious and Chucky was extremely accommodating. He even made me a vegan omelette which was delicious. We ate far too much! The staff were all so warm and friendly and long hugs were exchanged when we departed. We truly enjoyed the company of Johnny, Julia and Aavi. We are also now Dominos fanatics! We have no complaints at all. Our only recommendation would be to have a chest of drawers available in the EcoCasitas. It's a little tough living out of a suitcase for 6 days."

Travel Guide to Zihuatanejo, Mexico - A Trip to the Coast with the Most

Just because you can’t pronounce Zihuatanejo (zee-wha-tanay-ho) doesn’t mean you can’t travel there. Sandwiched between the Sierra Madres and the Pacific, the sleepy town’s lush landscapes cater to beach worshipers, nature lovers, and those in search of authenticity.

Built into the craggy cliffs above Playa Bonita, the young Capella Ixtapa feels more like a quiet, breezy inn than a resort. Ixtapa’s just five miles north of Zihuatanejo and has (thankfully) matured from its Girls Gone Wild days. For a boutique experience, head to La Casa Que Canta, a 33-room hideaway tucked into the rocks above downtown Zihuatanejo, where the smallest room is a sprawling 689 square feet. Thirty minutes south of Zihuatanjeo, 6-month-old Playa Viva is part ecological reserve (it’s run on solar power), part Robinson Crusoe adventure (stay in an ecoluxe casita made from bamboo) with yoga, excursions to the turtle sanctuary, beer, and three square meals a day included in the price.
