Mexico is known for its pristine beaches, spectacular landscapes, old architecture, and gourmet dishes. Tourists often visit Cancun for its resorts and nightlife. A little known secret is that Zihuatanejo, Mexico (a municipality in the State of Guerero) can give them both and more. Zihuatanejo is a fishing village that is one of the top three most-visited summer destinations in Mexico. This is because of Ixtapa, a modern tourist resort that can be found at Zihuatanejo. Aside from Ixtapa and its beaches, Zihuatanejo also has famous attractions such as the Archeological Museum of the Costa Grande (which showcases artifacts and statues), and the Mercado de Artesanías: a lively, local market that sells all sorts of crafts that make excellent souvenirs. Don’t forget to check out our list of the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals to truly experience Zihuatanejo like a true local. Book a unique, comfortable, and convenient pick from our top Airbnb vacation rentals in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, from our list below!
