We are having a great 17 day stay in Mexico. We are staying at our favorite hotel the Raul 3 Marias Centro. The Guzman family has taken care of their Gringos very well through several crises. It is basic (AC but no phone or TV) but it is spotlessly clean, affordable,and has a great restaurant (Garrobos). Thy ave a webpage and e-mail and 3 of them speak excellent English. We trusted tem enough to leave our valuable in their safe the 5 days we were gone and they allowed 4 of us to store suitcases free of charge.
After 5 days in Zihua we took a trip to Patzcuaro, Morelia, and the Monarch Butterfly Refuge between Morelia and Mexico City. We looked at all sorts of options but being long-in-the-tooth and not of unlimited wealth,decided for a Taxi over a bus or a plane. We couldnīt have found a better taxi driver and I want to recommend him: Gregorio Lopez cell:044 755 55 625 96 HOME: 01758 53 841 58 (From Zihua Ixtapa) We found him to be pleasant and personable, highly responsible a safe driver and his English is very good. He took us to Patzcuaro and pick us up 5 days later--he was even 1 1/2 hours early to poick us up, unheard of in Mexico generally. If you need a Ride to Acapulco, Lazalo Cardenas, or just a tour around Zihua, we recommen him highly.
If you are interested in asking questions about Patzcuaro, Morelia, or the Monarch Butterflies, please post a message and Iīll respond.
