Pretty cool place to walk around and do some shopping. You will find some "authentic" Mexico here, but mostly it is just tourist stuff. Remember to haggle when buying stuff, it's party of the game.

Shady coco palms, gentle breeze, lapping waves and soft-sell vendors highlight this strolling walkway. Nice little restaurants and bars and shops along the way. This is also the location of the original, as well as current fish market, where small operators bring their catch early...More

We had a day trip to Zihuatanejo from Ixtapa. Nice lunch and swim at the beach. Great food at Coc Loco. Worth the ride from Ixtapa. Fun to haggle over prices. Excellent place to get souvenirs.
