City overview

A relatively young resort, Zihuatanejo was developed for tourism in the 1970’s and it still retains the charm of its fishing village past. Often referred to as Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, due to the close proximity to the larger town of Ixtapa, around 3 miles (5km) away. This holiday town is, however, much more laid back than the neighbouring resort. Zihuatanejo enjoys all the benefits and amenities of Ixtapa, without as much hustle and bustle. Zihuatanejo is just 4 square miles (10 sq.km) and the town centre “El Centro” is a maze of narrow stone lined streets. The Craft Market (Mercado de Artensanías) showcases local crafts, there are hundreds of stalls where you can buy decorations, souvenirs and gifts. Getting a cheap flight to Zihuatanejo ensures you have more money to spend on shopping! The Archaeological Museum of the Costa Grande displays artefacts and the history of the area dating back to the Aztecs and beyond. Zihuatanejo is home to one of the best sport fishing areas in the world. During the first weekend of May, the International Sailfish Tournament is held in town. The local fishing industry ensures there is always a fresh catch available in the many seafront restaurants. There are many other outdoor activities to do, such as snorkelling, scuba diving and swimming with dolphins. When it is time to relax, nowhere is better than the sweeping white sands of the bay’s beaches.
