Just returned home from one month in Zihuatanejo. This was our 5th year staying in El Centro. Trip highlights: Waterfall Tour with Wil of Bluemorpho Ecco Tours, Sailfest, bidding at the auction, sailing on The Rose, new friends and old, and my personal highlight was scuba diving with Paco of Adventure Dives who showed me the wonders of the deep,(well not very deep, but deep for me),he held my hand so I wouldn't get lost (or scared). Also daily adventure shopping at the mercado where I bought cheese by the yard from my cheese man. Wonderful meals at a mercado fonda, my first Chili Relleno, Zorro's fish and chips, aguacate soup at Aguave, marinated tuna at Chez Arnaldo, hamburgers at La Hija del Capitan, 4 of us had a great dinner at Casa Vieja and of course one night at Amulletos. I loved it , but it was a little over the top for the Senor who spent 22 years eating in Navy galleys. For anyone who is truly interested I did do a daily blog, mainly for friends and family, at www.zihuathyme.wordpress.com. Worst moment of our trip was when we discovered that our return ticket was for the very next day and we had to leave 1 day ealier that we thought we were going to. We've reserved our little apartment for next year for 6 weeks.

Glad you had a wonderful trip,filled with memories of good food , weather

and also your diving experience. I imagine the 'Ol sea salt suggested the dive ?

But What A Bummer ! Finding out you had to leave a day earlier than you had to!
I would be in total denial.....
Set a calendar in your phone or something next time.

I bet THAT will never happen again !

the same, but different..

Great report...

I had a similar experience a few years back..only I showed up at the airport a day *early*. Luckily I still had the keys to the condo I was renting, in my pocket to be mailed back to the owner once I got home........

WOW! I loved reading your trip report, and I even managed to find some of your "lost" photos and posts by moving my mouse around on what appears to be a couple of blank entries. You didn't lose the entries that you thought were lost! They're just being coy. Not sure how to fix that.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us!!!

Read your blog. It was really lovely. The bits about the 'senor' made me laugh. Thank you!
