We found cheap tickets from Mexico City in late June 2017, completely unaware that the tourist season was long over. I guess there is a higher risk for hurricanes and bad weather but we had fantastic weather and our hotel owner claimed that is usually...More

We left our resort and flagged down a city bus. Took us 20 minutes into Zihuatanejo for only 18 pesos each. Then after spending many hours downtown we took a shuttle bus to Commercial Mexicani. Only 8 pesos each. It was a lot of fun...More
