Zihuatanejo is a cute little fishing village in Mexico. Ixtapa is the resort town next door. Zihuatanejo has kept much of its original charm because the hustle and bustle of the tourist trade is elsewhere. Plus, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that most of the tourists were Mexicans, so even Ixtapa has been spared some of the Americanization we have seen in other resort towns.
There were some huge iguanas in the treetops.
We had a magnificent view of the beach and the diving pelicans.
The hotel switched out these cruise-folded towels for our amusement.
The hotel lobby had some rather silly fountains.
There was a ramp but no escalator.
Free WIFI in the lobby worked almost all the time!
I knew what the noise was, but it took us a while to locate them.
Three peacocks in this cage, and a pair of peafowl (Mom and Dad) were in another one.
This is a nice photo.
Birdbath activity behind me stole the scene. They were having a good time!
They got a little carried away with the fish theme.
See what I mean?
These little palm trees are perfect for animals whose fur feels like a coconut.
This meal was okay, but the obnoxious American next to us was unforgettable! Mexican waiters can put up with anything.
But he did inspire us to collect our own celebratory accessories.
We were too lazy to do much exploring. It was, after all, a vacation.
We took the bus everywhere.
Zihuatanejo has some great little restaurants.
Zihutatnejo has beautiful flowers.
There are a million little stores in Zihuatanejo.
We got some really good stuff!
The best part of it all was this little restaurant on the beach.
They made it easy to hang around.
Not everyone had fun hanging out at the beach.
It was also fun to watch the pelicans from the hotel room balcony.
