Are Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo still safe?

Hi Huck, It sounds like you are smart tourists like most of us. I would only add that I dont wear or bring flashy jewelry, don't carry lots of cash or credit cards..I actually wear a money belt and distribute my money in a few places, don't carry a fanny pack or back pack filled with expensive things I don't want taken from me. (I learned that one the hard way in Peru many years ago). These are things I would do anywhere in the world..okay maybe not in Alma Colorado but as a world traveler I've learned that in many poor countries...tourists are often easy targets for crime. I, personally, feel safe in Ixtapa and Zih...But I do pay attention to obvious silly moves...ie, out a bar until 4 in the morning.

I agree with the above. I carry my ID and the money I need for the day in a small plastic container, which hangs around my neck on a cord. The contents is a little easier to access than a money belt.
