hope you will consider going to playa mahua sometime, that beautiful neglected gem between Zihua and Ixtapa. I would go early on a future Sunday say between 8 and 9 am to clean there if others are interested let me know.

First thing I should try to do is get the spelling correct, I think its Mahauay but only a guess from El Centro if you go out towards La Noria, you can take a right past the Pemex station then a left a few blocks later and then you are on the old road to Ixtapa, there are signs for the Wydnham resort on the right, go past those and on the left you will start seeing an elaborate stone wall, a little further you will see two large ornate gates with one open, then its down the hill on a decent concrete road,

I have to leave town today but hope to be back by 2/15 and can contact you by phone to confirm. I have a small pick up and can provide bags,
I will know my schedule better by 2/13 and will email you.
Gracias. John

From what I've read, there have been robberies committed there as this is and isolated beach. Why would you concern yourself with cleaning a beach that hardly anyone goes to or knows about, in addition to one that is not patrolled or protected. In fact some of the robberies have supposedly been committed by uniform policemen.

The map spells it Mahaju but a web site search spells it Majahau.

Zihua to Playa Majahua

I'm sure this is very simple, but have never done it. Could someone please post driving directions from Zihuatanejo to Playa Majahua?
If you're referring the the Playa Majahua between Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa there is no car access. You have to park at the abandoned guard house on the Carretera Escénica La Majahua and walk down the road to the beach, something I unfortunately can't recommend due to the utter absence of police vigilance and the fact that even the police themselves have been known to rob people at La Majahua. Just ask the firemen.
If you'll use the Google Map on my MAPS page you'll see where Avenida Morelos runs westward past Cinco de Mayo towards La Noria. To get to La Carretera Escénica La Majahua turn right at the gas station and go up the hill to a poorly made intersection with a sort of roundabout (watch for the 2 topes on the way up the hill). Turn left, and just past the next tope is the intersection with La Carretera Escénica La Majahua clearly marked (if you go straight you end up in La Noria). Turn right and go straight up the hill. You'll see a sign on the left for Puerto Mío. Don't take the road to Puerto Mío unless of course that's where you want to go. After a sharp right and then a sharp left curve you'll be at the big gates with the abandoned guardhouse for the abandoned Majahua development of Raúl Salinas de Gortari, corrupt brother of ex-president Carlos. Raúl spent 10 years in jail for murdering his brother-in-law the ex-governor of Guerrero, for which he was acquitted. Raúl was also accused of illicit enrichment since he couldn't explain how he made the 110 million dollars that were in a Swiss account under a false name which were frozen by the authorities for a number of years until recently when most of the money was returned to him along with the land at La Majahua. A lovely story, don't you think?
