Zihuatanejo to Acapolco?

Jump to last reply

We are planning to be at Zihu for a week on Dec 24 ( my wife, me and our 20yr old son). My son and I have been to Mexico a number of times, though never to Zihu, which has always been on my list. However, I am getting a bit of cold feet reading some reviews ( beaches not very pretty - Zihu itself not the most quint little town imagined; safety issues, and gringos overtaken as rude investors of little hotels). Can anyone shed some light on these issues? We have been to Riviera Maya ( Akumal which we loved), and also traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico City, Guadalajara, and PV before.

Also, I was thinking of driving down to Acapulco for say three nights of the trip ( three at Zihu, three at Acapulco). Is driving, during the day, at toll highways reasonably safe? Again, I am concerned as I am traveling with my wife this time and she is very fussy and easy to be displeased or concerned!

Would also love any suggestions for beach front, good hotels. Would pay up for good service and view, and access to beach.

Many thanks.
