Is it okey for Americans to live in Zihuatanejo now?

I'm thinking of moving to Zihua, after spending two months there a few years ago, I fell in love with it! The people were great, and the living is so reasonable, and I love swimming in that warm water.
Does anyone have an email for the Motel on Hwy 200?

Does anyone know of a small house to rent in La Puerta for one year? And, does anyone have the name and email for a Century21 Real Estate agent in Zihua?

I'm a big fan of Liz Williams, and if she is still living in Zihua, I'm sure she will be a big help. I have her email, and hope it still is working.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

My concern was regarding the effects of Donald Trump on Mexico, and I was asking if it is okey for Americans to feel safe and still okey to live in Zihua?

The LOCALS I talk to either treat Donald Trump as a non-issue or just a big joke. They may not like him (heck, at least half of all Americans don't like him either(like him) but in no way do they think he is a threat to safety or creates a situation relating to safety.

No Zihua and Mexico in general is a scary and dangerous place. You will need a bodyguard and then have to sleep with one eye open. Stay in Kansas or Texas where you can assume everyone is armed and dangerous

And don't forget to carry pepper spray in your hand at all times and wear a bullet proof vest.

Now to be serious. I have been coming to this area for 17 years and stayed for 3 to 4 months and now live here permanently. I have lived on Pla Blanca, on the hill above La Ropa and in the native neighborhood of La Noria.

I have never felt any safer. Com'mon cown. Contact any Realtor on ZRob's list and just start looking. You will find something soon.

And you point is? The first part of my reply was a tongue in cheek as I am sure you realize, the second part was to simple state I feel it is very safe to live here.

And you post is about nationalities and people of color? Please enlighten me.

You are more likely to run into whiny disruptive behavior from either side of the issue Above the border, not below it.

Hello,

We've been traveling to Zihua since 2010, and were married there last year.

We have made several friends there with the local, keep in touch over the year, and share holidays & birthdays with them while we are there.

We keep ourselves informed with what is going on in the area; I think the only precaution we've ever taken, is not staying out alone at night. We feel safe there, in fact I think it's fair to safe, we feel as safe, or safer there than certain areas when we are at home.

We too are looking to buy, check out the links on ZihuaRob's website; Zihua Bello is a favorite of ours. There are also a lot of FB groups dedicated to homes for sell, as well as places to rent.

Enjoy your time there, and the paradise of the Costa Grande!!

Cheers,

AnitaB-)

......Does anyone have an email for the Motel on Hwy 200?

I hope you're not referring to the "No Tell/100 pesos-for-3 hours" Motel out on Hwy. 200! Not recommended for long stays. In fact the word "Motel" has a certain "je ne sais quoi" about it in Mexico. ;-)
