We arrived in Zihuatanejo, Mexico just in time for their Christmas festivities.
In the main plaza preparations were on for Christmas performances. Costumes for the Christmas performances in Zihuatanejo, Mexico. One of several Christmas trees; this one was decorated with white bows and red poinsettias. On December 8 there was a big street party in the older part of town to celebrate the upcoming festivities. Fried bananas. Corn kernels and butter; the little girl in front can hardly wait!Somebody is a bit sleepy. Google Map of Zihuatanejo and its beaches. 20 years earlier we had stayed near the Muelle Zihuatanejo, the town pier, on the Playa Principal, and getting to Playa Madera involved some rock climbing. Now there is a malecón which easily connects the two beaches. In 2019 we stayed near Playa La Madera, where we spent the next day, and the day after we went to Playa La Ropa, a long swath of sand which was totally new to us.
