No Cruise Ships This Year

We actually discovered Zihuatanejo by going on a cruise about 15 years ago. Back then when I first discovered this board you and many hated the cruisers coming and ruining your little paradise. Most comments were about how fat we were and how we did nothing for the economy. So now that they're gone why are you not happy as it appears your wish came true?

I regret you have a such a jaded opinion of me even though it was certainly not I who ever made such comments, and I believe I have been nothing but welcoming towards you personally and as a potential cruise ship passenger. Perhaps you are purposely leaving out the fact that 3 times over the past 20 years or so my family and many neighbors were struggling against the government to prevent an unnecessary cruise ship pier from being built in our bay or in Barra de Potosí.

But don't take my word for it. I have it all saved in my Message Board Archives (I believe it's Archives IV that has most of the discussion concerning the second attempt to build a pier in the bay).

It's pretty interesting reading all the old comments. Nevertheless, it's a bit unsettling how so many of my predictions about the future came true, more so because too many folks either failed to pay attention or they simply didn't care.
