We stayed in Zihua 8 days and loved it. We recommend the Raul 3 Marias Centro for a budget (not backpacker budget) hotel.The only problem we had was that the ATM at BANCOMER ate my debit card Dec 12, a holiday.I recommend that you use the Ser Fin bank which has qa "swiper" mechanism so you don't risk losing you card.I called the States on the 800 # and it was only a minor inconvenience.We recommend the panga trip to Playa Las Gatas and Isla Ixtapa, although Playa La Ropa was our favorite. We also recommend the trip to Petatlan on the "just folks" bus to see the church there. It's about a 45 min trip each way.
