Zihuatanejo


We were on the road by 9 we thought about staying another night but way to many bug bites so we left. The drive here was one of the easier drives I have had lately. It was a pleasant drive with a few stops to see the views. We arrived at Zihuatanejo around 1 with only one bad road into the camp ground (construction)  El Manglar Trailer Park Its a nice place but not enough shade so the air is running.we still have no idea what it costs no one is here to collect today. There are 3 others parked here 2 from Quebec and one Girl with her twin 7 year old boys no idea where they are from. This is the walk way to the beach.


This is the beach we walked down to the end in both directions.


No idea who these people are but they were waving at me I guess they thought they knew me but when they got closer they turned around and went the opposite direction.


The bay has a lot of live aboard boats it must be a good sheltered bay.



Next to the camp there is this swamp with some crocks in it someone said 4 All that I know is this guy is big must be 8 to 10 feet long.


I walked up close to him and he shows me his teeth.


there was a lot of birds 


And I saw a few different Iguana's  from an orange to a lime green color.


Tomorrow we are going to try and find our way to centro.

  1. Ha! Therese with the boys are from Michigan! Edmundo is the one to pay - he is the brother of Memo who owns the restaurant. I'm sure you have that figured out by now! Glad you made it - I wrote about the road construction on my blog but not sure if you got that. Glad you made it. El centro is easy to find - if you want to take the bus just go down the alley to the beach but just before it at El Pirata hang a left and keep walking until you come to the taxi and combi parking area. 7.5 pesos each to the centre. Enjoy!

  3. I hope there was a fence between you and that big Croc. I was at Ixtapa once and saw one jump 4' into the air bringing down a large Egret. They can also outrun small dogs. Give him space.There are some good restaurants downtown. Next good stop is Maruata at KM150, go through the town square and go North to where Lupi makes her Pecan rolls every morning, camp by her ramada. See my pictures. http://www.keelhauler.org/mexico/2007_3.htm we loved this place for the views.
