How come this wasn't posted? Four dead in a bar in Ixtapa? That would be news as far as I am concerned. People should be aware that this is happening.

If you were there partying with the narcos at 4AM you may have witnessed something. As for posting, it's in the local papers I believe.

Killings in Ixtapa

For a long period of time I have watched the postings on criminal activity. And I have taken it with a grain of salt and several times expressed my opinion that I feel perfectly safe her AND I still do.

But my daughter was just here and "talked up" the area with her large circle of friends (most of whom I know).


To my surprise a very large percentage of her friends are not coming to Z simply because of the negative press in the U.S.

Yes, the criminal activity is costing this area a lot of tourist business.

If the officals don't believe that all this wild west action won't affect tourism, check out what has happened to Acapulco. Zihuatanejo could revert back to being just a little fishing town.

La Malkerida. Fairly central, well known and popular for the after midnight crowd.

Plus it's a nightclub & papers say it was a targeted hit. You don't be out between 12:00am & 6:00am. The "boys" are out, drunk & high on coke or whatever.

So does that mean that between 12 AM and 6 AM, it's ok to shoot up the place?

Come now, you really think that is what Charlybby is implying? Silly you.

Whatever paper said that was simply wrong.

A drunk got kicked out of a bar, went to his car and came back with a pistol and shot the waiters who had kicked him out. Some good people known by many of us were killed. The gunman got away. End of story.

I must admit, I thought everyone was simply being respectful by not discussing this incident here. I should've known better.

Thank you for bringing up the issue of respect. Others should realize it is part of the Culture .

I understand the respect part. At the same time though having ZihuaRob share that what is in the media is incorrect certainly changes the tone of the incident, at least to me.

My family is making our 4th trip to the area in a month. Prior to ZihuaRob's post, if my wife got hold of the story she would have initially said we will stay on the hotel property for the whole trip but realize that is just not our style and ultimately say we need to canx and go somewhere else.

It is a terrible thing to occur no matter what but knowing the truth is very valuable and something this board seems to try to do which I appreciate.

We had 2 people scheduled to come by the house the other day and give bid on some work we needed. One gentleman didn't come because his son had been killed in that bar. A truly sad event, but it won't keep us from coming down.

Supposedly the bar between shakers and kopadas, the one that backs onto the Generals.

I totally agree!! We have been vacationing in Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo since 1989 and bringing lots of family and friends with us. We love it there and we have always looked to this website to keep us informed of what is going on in the area. Here is some of the recent activity in Ixtapa. Very sad. Praying for the family and friends of those killed. http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2017/04/three-policemen-are-executed-in-ixtapa.html
