In Reply to: Drive from Zihuatanejo to Alcapulco- Itinerary Suggestion? posted by C on September 26, 2000 at 11:49:25:
It's about a 4 hour drive from Zihuatanejo to Acapulco, so I recommend getting an early start. If you do leave in the morning you can take your breakfast seaside at a place called La Barrita which is a beach area right beside the road between Petatlán and Papanoa. There are several enramada restaurants there and it should be cool and peaceful in the morning. You'll see the beach and a sign in front of the various restaurants about 20 minutes or so south of Petatlán past the salt-producing lagoons.
You can find a decent printable road map of the coastal highway between here and Acapulco on my Getting Here page.
