Tropical storm Manuel effect on Pacifica Resort

Here is a copy of a communication I received last night regarding the Pacifica Resort in Ixtapa.

Dear Members and Friends:

This past weekend, we had the visit of “Manuel”, a tropical storm that practically passed over Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. We had continuous rainfall for almost three days. This storm produced severe damage to the Acapulco area where thousands of homes where lost and important infrastructure was damaged.

In Ixtapa Zihuatanejo the story was a different one. As a town the damage was minimal. Our airport did not suffer as the airport of Acapulco did and was always open. Our internal roads, lighting and water services have been working practically without problems.

We have had many fallen trees and small landslides. But everything else is ok.

Our employees have had good luck and all are well. We do have some families that have had important flooding in their homes and we will report their status tomorrow, as they have not returned to work because of this.

Fortunately, our two resorts did not suffer important damages. We did have many fallen trees, as the wind was indeed strong. But apart from loosing a small part of our beach and some palapas, we are well and giving service to almost 900 guests.

We do not have internet as Telmex's service is down. We did loose most of our turtle farm. We had more tan 5,000 turtle eggs and they where washed away by the ocean.

The roads to Ixtapa are currently closed as several bridges collapsed. Authorities predict that in a week or so they will be open. There is a road open via Morelia and our guests have been using it.

The sun is back, both hotels are clean and running and we feel blessed that nothing important happened to our employees and to our properties. We pray for all of the people who lost their properties, their homes and in some cases their loved ones in several parts of Mexico.

We are sending some pictures that were taken yesterday and today in the morning at Pacifica.

Yours Sincerely,

Jorge Ocaranza F.

Thank you for the storm report. We were so worried about you all and our beautiful home in Ixtapa. So sorry you lost the turtle eggs. Our family is already looking forward to our annual visit next Feb.-Mar.

Kind regards, Carole & Paul Kefer

It is open for cars only...on a temporary basis. Basically there is a dirt "path" to bypass the damaged parts- one way at a time.
