Together with the adjecent town of Ixtapa, coastal Zihuatanejo remains one of southwestern Mexico's major tourist destinations. Encircling a picturesque bay backed by rolling green hills, the town retains a relaxed feel despite its popularity with foreign visitors. While on vacation in Zihuatanejo, you'll spot local anglers setting off in motorized skiffs, performing an age-old task using 20th-century technology. The town serves as the starting point for many guided excursions, with local operators providing half- and full-day fishing trips and snorkeling adventures. While Ixtapa attracts mostly wealthier American tourists, Zihuatanejo remains a favorite for European backpackers and Mexican holidaymakers escaping the big cities for a few days. Use our Mexico day trip planning tool to arrange your visit to Zihuatanejo and any other destinations in Mexico that take your fancy.
