This area of shopping was just like the others we'd seen. Just trinkets..not really anything "Mexican" if you are looking for handmade items and such.

While in Zihuatanejo we start every day with a walk along Paseo de Pescador. It runs from the pier to the end of Playa la Madera and it's a great place to watch the boats, people and fish jumping in the bay. This year they have made some much needed repairs - replaced pillars and ropes and fixed the lighting... More

You can buy an entire mahi-mahi or tuna here for a great price, or have the amiga cut a few chunks off for you. It's a great spot to sit and watch the pangas come in at top speed and beach their boats

At some point during your Zihua stay spend some time here. Just grab a drink at a nearby cafe and watch the fishermen haul their boats, or sell their fresh catch on the sand, or play checkers with each other. If you play checkers and speak Spanish you can probably get a game!

Beautiful views of the ocean, tons of little shops and street vendors. Open market and plenty of watering holes. I recommend a stroll through here.

Even of you are in Ixtapa or in town for just one day, take the time to stroll this classic paseo along the original Playa Central and fisherman's walk. Many good restaurants and classic stores, as well as SPA - ZIHUA, the local animal rescue league, which welcomes visitors and support for all its non-profit work in the community.

great places to eat, shop and stroll. Look for the tequila and mescal shop called Tequila Por Favor. You can taste before you buy and it's a selection you won't find at BevMo!

This place has a lot of shops but all exactly the same and nothing of much quality. I was very surprised, not better items to choose from.
