Welcome to “another day in Paradise” - Imagine looking out over the Bay & Town of Zihuatanejo far south on the Mexican Riviera; you first see the sun rising on the fishing boats, catamarans and the occasional cruise ship before dwelling on famed Playa La Ropa. After hours of enjoying consistent 25 Celsius/82 Fahrenheit, (and a dip in the beckoning pool), it's back to the pleasant shade of the large “terraza” in time to watch the sun setting on hills surrounding the Bay and finally in to the azure of the Pacific Ocean.
The magic of the fabulous views looking out over famous Playa Ropa Bay, with your tastefully decorated Casa having many accents uniquely Mexican. The approximately 2200 square feet of space includes living/dining area, supported with a very functional kitchen for those that want to self-cater; there is also a barbecue and wine/beer fridge on the 700 square foot deck with hammock & tropical plants. All rooms have ceiling fans as well as air conditioning in all bedrooms.
Zihuatanejo information This relaxing fishing village is now a vibrant yet quiet retreat for holiday makers. Most cruise ship lines include Zihua in it's destinations for good reason. To this day you can wander down to the fish market every day and buy dinner caught that morning. (Or rent a boat and skipper to catch your own bounty of the sea)!
Surrounding area Within a 15 minute taxi ride there is the drama of over 10 kilometres of beautiful beaches, local 'Enramadas', (outdoor cafes); $1 beers; beach-side massages and body surfing. Or grab the clubs or tennis racquet and head for nearby Ixtapa for a round or a set.
Playa La Ropa This local beach is just steps away from Agave Blue; where warm waters for swimming and snorkeling abound. Choose from about 20 beach-front restaurants from budget to 5 star. Discover the gem of Las Gatas, (Cats Beach), for a day of secluded tanning and water activity in this compact reefed bay with crystal clear blue/green water. Walk there over the rocks or take a water taxi for about 20 pesos.
