Zih Lovely Cruise

Gobierno de Zihua posted 22 photos on FB showing the cruisers being greeted on shore by ladies with gifts and a huge mariachi band. Only to be sent away on buses. Where do they go? What is the benefit for Z per se?

They went on tours they paid for aboard the ship, mostly to hotels in Ixtapa if past trends hold true. My wife’s boutique Lupita’s remained open throughout the day but had no sales to any cruise ship passengers. The tour bus companies made some money, and the politicos got their photos in lots of media. But local restaurants and shop owners are complaining about the lack of sales. Personally instead of seeing the politicians give speeches and put on a big show for the tourists, I’d prefer to see them all allowed to wander the streets of downtown Zihuatanejo at their leisure.
