It's time for an indoor kitchen in our new house!!!!

We have been told that there is a great "stone" store somewhere near the airport. Can anyone provide us with more information than that? Don't want to waste time driving in circles when we could be on the beach.

Ironically, I sent Enrique Zozaya’s team a message today with that same question. I trust them explicitly. The following was the response in Spanish unfortunately but I’m sure you can translate if need be: “Yo te recomiendo vayas a una tienda que se llama Margarix, está sobre la carretera Zihuatanejo - Lázaro Cárdenas, en el poblado de San José Ixtapa, pregunta por Irving Galindo, su número es 7551287141, en ese lugar hay mas variedad que en cualquier otro lado de Zihuatanejo.”

There is a great place on mex 200- on one side or the other of the "airport" intersection where the OXXO is. If you just drive it from Zihua, once past Coacoyul just keep an eye out on the left side- it's a one story building and there are always huge slabs of granite out front....can't miss it.

We went to two places south of town yesterday to look at granite. We were impressed.

Thanks to Susan G, we found Fabricaciones "Ocampo" on the south edge of Coacoyul, east side of the road, next to a vet. He had beautiful things, and the granite ran between 3600 and 4200p per square meter for the ones we fell in love with. That included cuts, edges and installation. Armando Ocampo Benitez 755 120 6691.

On the way back, also on the east side of the main highway we found Marmoles del Pacifico 755-111-7875 They also had pretty stuff, but no one was there. They are located a little bit north of the OXXO by the gas plant.

Hope this helps someone!

There was also a very impressive granite slab warehouse/showroom out past Ixtapa quite close to the original El Tiburon restaurant.

You can't go wrong with Armando. They were punctual and professional. We are very satisfied with the granite.

We need to buy sinks and a range or stove top and oven, get the granite selected and have an indoor kitchen.

Can you give us a better idea where they are in Ixtapa? We know Zihuatanejo well, but don't know Ixtapa. Thanks!
