> Our fishermen work hard every single day to bring home the sustenance for their families. Together with the ejidatarios they provide the true economic foundation for Zihuatanejo, not Ixtapa.

REALLY....the whole area revolves around Z.........NOT from my view of the ocean. Maybe some day you can be on a team.


You think all that money from the Ixtapa hotels and condo sales and construction goes into local banks or gets spent here? Ixtapa stole Zihuatanejo's prosperity. Look across the street from your high-rise condo. See all those failing shops and restaurants starving for clients? Most Ixtapa workers are transplants. They come, they drink, they go. They are the clients for our noisy bars who could care less about local customs or mores, and it shows. Many of the construction workers from Ixtapa's different projects (mostly condos lately) end up being the folks invading our hillsides when their construction work ends and their employers abandon them, often owing them back wages and severance pay. It's an old story that has repeated itself over and over ever since the Aristos was built.

Zihuatanejo residents shop in Zihuatanejo stores and eat in Zihuatanejo restaurants. Ixtapa promotes Ixtapa and looks after Ixtapa. That's why my family and hundreds of others are marching in Ixtapa streets seeking payment from the federal government which administers Ixtapa. Ixtapa made a lot of outsiders rich, but locals were never more than menial labor, and even then Ixtapa businesses brought most of their labor with them. Only one hotelier tried to integrate Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa, but a ruthless cacique governor ran him out of the country a few decades ago. So go enjoy yourself in the CASINO and go SWIM WITH THE IMPRISONED DOLPHINS and walk past the burnt out ruins of the old Palapa bar and think about how much good your condo maintenance fees are doing for Zihuatanejo. ;-)
