En respuesta a: Sir Francis Drake escrito por Oesta Hermosa desde 205.200.189.2 (?) el día jueves, 12 de marzo, 2009 a las 18:23:13 horas :

The book, "Pirates of New Spain, 1575-1742", states that the log books of Drake made no mention of Zihuatanejo. He did spend time in Huatulco prior to sailing for Baha California.

The pirates, Dampier and Anson, both stopped here for water and supplies. One recorded "No sign of permanent settlement" and the other noted "a small fishing village" which he sacked and burned.

Spanish records do not indicate any significant settlement at Zihuatanejo during colonial times.
