My wife Lupita wanted me to remind folks that besides used and donated glasses she also needs school supplies. The vacaciones navideñas are almost here, and she'd like to make up and distribute school supplies to the returning students after the holidays.

I saw a photo of one of the new non-stop flights now available from Chicago to Zihuatanejo. Might've been half a dozen people aboard. Not good. We need to spread the word.

Los reto a Enrique de la Madrid, a Ernesto Rodríguez Escalona, a Juan Antonio Bureos Oliva y a Zandra Almeda y Alatorre a llenar este vuelo con pasajeros.

This young boy was ecstatic to receive donated school supplies. He works hard in the evenings selling snacks along the waterfront area.

2 great photos. But I've got to ask, did you help this person with the wheelchair, or just take their photo?

They didn't look like they needed help to me. So yeah, I just took their photo.

Rob could you post the list of School Supplies by grade ....... Most current version......... As well as the name and directions to the store by the school that sells them........I like the idea of buying them down there as it helps out twice........last year we stopped by the store put our order in .....1 set for each grade X 2 couples..... Then went to the beach to have a refreshment while they prepared it....... Went back picked it up and dropped it off at Lupitas shop along with the glasses we brought...... We have our glasses ready to bring....... This year we plan to do the same but we will be 4 couples .........the list made it simple just print it and let them know at the store how many sets for each grade you want to but...... I think for grades 1-3 it was about 650 pesos ........as mentioned by others in a previous post thanks for this website Rob ....... The information posted here was a factor in us making Zihua are destination of choice

------------------------

As for where to purchase them, any papelería should have most of these items. I like the store on the alleyway called León Felipe where the Escuela Primaria "Vicente Guerrero" is. If you're on Calle Juan N. Álvarez with your back to the museum facing the school across the street and the plaza where the Eco-Tianguis is held each Saturday, just walk straight across the street past the school and the plaza and you'll see the school supply store on the left, same side as the school. It's owned by the same family that also has the convenience store in front of the pier. They're good people.

Thank you very much for your kind generosity!

Oops, forgot about that one. Can you comment on how that flight was? Baggage costs? Was the plane full/empty?

FYI, since Alaska is merging with Virgin America, there are now 7 total daily direct flights to LAX from either EWR or JFK. Alaska has daily dierct flights from LAX. I mention it because of the $99 companion fare with the credit card. You'd pay full price for one ticket, the second is $121. Downside here is that it looks like you'd have to overnight in LAX.

Not close at all---LAX is Los Angeles. I thought you were flying from NYC. Going on Alaska JFK (oe EWR)- LAX-ZiH would only make sense if you used their companion fare, but it is an option.

My wife and I routinely fly from SEA to ZIH with our companion fare. It's usually $600-$700 for both of ue and because of our status on Alaska, we ger bumped to first class about half the time, by buying our tix as early as possible.

Would love to hear about your experience with Volaris. We are flying Volaris from Chicago in January. We have been going to Zihua for many years but have never done an Apple Vacation.

I'm with Grumpy. We don't really have room to bring anything and would prefer to buy it there anyway.

If there is a list of some sort like Grumpy described and a location from which to buy we will be right on it when we get there! January 11 or so, maybe too late for post Christmas break?
