Playa Azul

Playa Azul is not a huge hit with foreign tourists. Perhaps a lot of the indifference is caused by a beach that is wide open to the vagaries of the Pacific Ocean. There are a number of hotels and perhaps one of the higher rated ones is the Hotel Playa Azul. I would assign it perhaps two and a half stars. The town itself is rather sleepy and dusty. No one really regards the local stores for much more than incidental purchases, most go to neighboring La Mira on Sunday Tianguis or further to Lazaro Cardenas to shop.

Because I live close by I regard Playa Azul as rather "boring". On a scale of activities, and interests, I would rate Zihuatanejo as a seven, Ixtapa as a five, Barra de Navidad as a seven (Melaque Included) and Playa as a solid two. Oh, you're interested in what I consider as being a "Ten"? San Cristobal de Las Casas, and perhaps Oaxaca City. The scale is based on interesting things to do and experience.

I hope this answer spurs interest for others to chime in...
