Back to Zihua and Isla Grande
25 April 2014 | Zihuatanejo
Dave, clear, sunny, warm
We made the run up from Acapulco March 12 & 13. The weather has remained warm and sunny overall, which is what makes this such a great cruising grounds, that and the warmth of the people. We anchored out for several nights locally then went into the Ixtapa Marina for one night to clean up and provision. Ixtapa is not at all like Zihuatanejo. It is a built for tourists beach resort place. No one really lives there, it just exists for tourists and the locals from Zihua and other communities service the place. Kind of on the line of Cancun, but smaller. Great beaches though.
Tim kept asking everyone that spoke English who had the best roof top bar/restaurant on the Ixtapa strip. The answer universally was "El Farro at Pacifica". So, on March 16, we went there for dinner. It was fabulous, all I can say is Google search that resort. Quite a place. We had a great meal and not excessively priced. It was dark so no pictures.
