We enjoyed our stay in the one bedroom Casa. We could not ask for better hosts, Julian and Karim. They are very helpful and happy to assist in any way. We were welcomed with a beautiful flower arrangement, a basket overflowing with local fruit, and an icy cold pitcher of tamarindo drink in the fridge. We were invited to share some wonderful live salsa music and dancing at a nearby restaurant- what a blast ! Thank-you Karim and Carolline for being such a great dance partners.
The accommodation was simple yet functional and provided an equipped kitchen, air conditioning, comfortable bed and our own private outdoor patio for eating and relaxing. There is also a 2nd accommodation on site- a funky geodesic dome with outdoor kitchen- so check it out too!
Julian provides airport shuttle, for a reasonable fee, which made things stress-free; soon after arrival we were at the beach enjoying a gorgeous sunset and cold cervezas !
The location is very good- go for an EASY stroll to a wonderful swimming beach with snorkelling ( Playa La Ropa) , or right out front you can catch the local collective to take you into town. There are lots of beachside restaurants within walking distance plus many others a short drive away. There is a cold beer store and an OXXO ( convenience store) with good selection and prices- right across the road , so you don't have to lug your beer/wine too far!
The town of Zihuatenajo has bustling daily market which provides local produce, fresh seafood, and whatever else you might need. Enjoy walking the town and tourist district near the marina which includes a seawall that extends out to Playa La Ropa.
We look forward to returning again someday soon.
