The advice you have gotten is all good advice. But I would add one thing. When exiting baggage claim, you may be approached by people who will ask if you need a taxi. They are timeshare people (Zihuatanejo is not immune). Unless you want a timeshare presentation, don’t engage them.

As you exit baggage claim, turn right and you should see the taxi desk. Pay for your taxi ride in advance from this desk only. Outside, the taxi starter will take you to a taxi. If the driver helps you with your bags, you might want to tip him. But the ride itself is paid for in advance, at the taxi desk.

Also, you can pay for the taxi in dollars or by card but paying with pesos will probably save a bit given the card surcharge and the quoted exchange rate. As others have suggested, you can make use the ATMs in the airport for convenience. Most restaurants on the beach are pesos only, no cards. A few places in town take cards but pesos are the norm.
