Zihuatanejo's health authorities report there are currently 19 confirmed active cases of Covid-19 in Zihuatanejo. La Unión continues with only 1 and Petatlán 0.

If you are arriving or leaving or need to drive anywhere south be aware that local healthcare workers have blocked the road to the airport at the Coacoyul intersection meaning nothing is moving on Carretera Nacional 200 until they decide to open the road. Travelers have been walking with their luggage past the blockade to take public transport on the other side to make their flights. Not sure what bus companies are doing. Las autoridades brillan por su ausencia (como siempre).

Looks like our rainy season has all but ended. There are a couple of small tropical waves in the Caribbean, but it doesn't look like they'll make it this far. Bummer. The rainy season is my favorite season of the year.

We're all hoping this tourist season sees the return of folks who didn't come last year due to the pandemia. Have a look-see through my recommended lodgings and treat yourself to relaxing tropical vacation in our corner of paradise.

Health workers are owed money. According to today's ABC newspaper the money will be paid tomorrow the 13th at noon.

They want payment for the Fondo del Estado de Guerrero de Ahorro Capitalizable (FEGAC), ISSSTE and other benefits. Old problems that will make no sense to most people.

It's a statewide protest. Not just Zihuatanejo.
