A 40 minute drive south of Zihuatenejo we found solitude, perfect beach, awesome sunsets, casual atmosphere, extremely friendly staff, great food all in a natural setting. 10 (5 kids, 5-10 years old) of us went right after Christmas and spent the New Year here. We all had a terrific time. The 5 kids, plus 2 new friends from Mexico City, could play all day in the pool, on the beach (flag football, paddle ball, building forts with drift wood, etc.), in the surf or play cards and board games. And they loved the sea turtle sanctuary and releasing baby turtle into the ocean. Fall asleep every night to sound of the ocean and warm breezes. Probably the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on.
