Zih Survey

Fabulous pix as usual, maestro. Felicidades a Lupita for her efforts distributing donated items where they're needed.

I've only been coming regularly to ZIH for ten years, but in that time it seems the Zihuatanejo I was originally drawn to has been nibbled away at from both ends: First, ever-greater numbers of Mexican tourists arriving by the busload to stay in one place, party on the beach and consume mostly food & drink they've brought with them in coolers.

Then, at the high end, all the luxury condos, the misplaced efforts to build a mega-cruise-ship pier, and places like Loot trying to do a Zihua make-over as a glitzy, "lifestyle" destination.

Neither, it seems to me, embraces the laid-back scale and tempo that's made Zihua so special and sets it apart so remarkably from other Mexican resort areas.

I just hope the place's future doesn't involve a deal with the devil, trading all that's unique and wonderful for the immediate gain of a few profiteers and crooked politicians.
