If some of you are looking for an easy day trip or just a bus trip so you can sit by the ocean at a beachfront restaurant away from everyone, take a bus (or car) south out of Zihuatanejo to a very little place called La Barrita. It is just south of Petatlan where the highway comes back to the ocean. There is no real town there, just a pull off from the highway. There are a few restaurants right on the beach. We stopped there for lunch last January and had a great shrimp feast for a very small price. Some of the restaurants had rooms for rent, but they were very, very economical looking.
