Moved to Ixtapa, looking to connect with other expats

Hello!
My wife and I moved to Ixtapa a couple of weeks ago and are slowly settling in. I love the heat, she doesn't...lol. Anyway, I am curious if there are any meetings, local pubs and such, where expats like us kinda go to meet and visit. We would love to join in and meet some new people.

On another note, I am looking for info on any pickup soccer and basketball teams that may be in this area for ''mature'' guys. I see a lot of soccer going on and regular basketball games on that court downtown Zihua.

Cheers!
Duke

Bienvenidos a Zihuatanejo. Espero que ustedes encuentren tanta felicidad aquí que yo he encontrado.

Someone else may be able to help you with locating ex-pat culture and hangouts. I invite you to enjoy Mexicans and their culture. They’ve always been what I’ve enjoyed most about living here. Domingos culturales at the Cancha Municipal. Even the Fiesta Mexicana at some of the Ixtapa hotels.

Septiembre is Mes de la Patria, and the night of the 15th the Presidente Municipal will give El Grito de la Independencia at the Palacio Municipal, and there are usually many special dinner events at some of the local restaurants and hotels with Mariachis and cultural entertainment that I hope you and your wife will take advantage of.

Hola!
Thank you all for the responses and welcome wishes! I know where Zorro's in Ixtapa is, hope to run into some of you there soon.

ZihuaRob, thank you for your message and your warm welcome. I have been happily married to a beautiful Mexican woman who is the light of my life for a long while now. I have learned that Mexican culture is practically identical to my own Serbian heritage. I feel at home here!

There´s a regular ex-pat Koffee Klatch held Tuedays and Saturdays in downtown Zihua. Location is at the cafe-bistro called "Ubuntu," located on the pedestrian walkway Pedro Ascensio, one short block inland from the main beachfront. Time 10-12 noon. Regulars, in aggregate, account for 75 years experience living in these parts. Info offered to newcomers can be consdered reliable. (The cappuchinos and strawberry crepes definitely are.) You are welcome to drop in. Ask for zulualpha....

Hola.
If you want a laid back place frequented by Canadians and USA people go to Zorros in Ixtapa. It is on the road to playa Linda near where the old casino was. Great place.
