There are many sides of Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa besides the bays and beaches, and one of them is the exclusive Porto Ixtapa overlooking Marina Ixtapa. Beautiful homes and condos dotted on the hillsides in a gated community across the waterway from Beccofino restaurant and the iconic tower in the Marina Ixtapa shopping center. Its residents definitely aren't bothered by Jehovah's Witnesses. ;-)

I thought you all might enjoy these scenes.

Pretty snazzy! The best manager we ever had was a Jehova's Witness. I found this out by pure coincidence. He never mentioned it or tried a sales job on me.

When we did a fishing trip from the Marina, could not get over how beautiful the homes were along the canal.

Are residents elsewhere being bothered by Jehovah Witnesses?

JW Is very active in Mexico. They have beautiful churches in many outlying communities. With the exception of Casa Que Ve Al Mar, which is "gate", they have knocked on my door. Very polite, very professional. Usually in pars and one will speak excellent English. In La Noria when I explained I am vision impaired and couldn't read their brochures the lady reached into her bag pulled out an ipad and turned on the audio! Amazing.

Some condo owners have been scammed. The give the visiting JW a great long term rate , then they leave after a month.
A couple of years ago they were 4 couples, we kept saying those people sure are friendly. Found out why, but they were polite and not pushy

Once owned a small motel/apartment complex in U.S. saem scam used to be pulled on me. So I set u program where the guest paid regular daily rate and when they reached the discounted rate and period of time they stayed for free to finish out their time and it was in writing.

We had a JW couple staying at our place for a year. They were pleasant, polite and took good care of the place.

I'm surprised I have to elaborate on a semi-sarcastic remark about Jehovah's Witnesses in a gated community. You do understand that in gated communities they don't just let anyone in, right? The residents enjoy their privacy, peace and security.

Yes Rob I do understand that as we are in a gated community in ixtapa!! The "semi-sarcastic remark" didn't come across that way to me. Guess my humour is lacking abit today. Will try to lighten up...lol

Easy Peasy!!

No Door Knockers

When I bought my place up here, it had a chain link fence.
Never should have pulled it out.
