FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Located about 40 minutes from Zihuatanejo, this is a small, beachside town of about 500 people and a wide lagoon that is home to hundreds of birds. Peaceful immersion into natural Mexico and authentic culture are reasons to visit, but the fresh seafood is also excellent and inexpensive.
  • Take a tour on a small boat to see the lagoon up close, or, if you're up for it, rent kayaks and go out into the water on your own. One caveat: the lagoon naturally disappears during parts of the year as the ocean shifts the sand barrier, so make sure it's open when you want to go.
  • This is one of the few places where you can arrange to ride horses directly on the beach.
