My first visit to Zihuatanejo was in 1951 or 52. I stayed at the brand new
Catalina Hotel. We were met at the bus depot by a dusty Land Rover. They told us the Land Rover was about the only auto that would get us to the catalina . We walked to town almost every day.

At that time, there was no small bridge across the creek. Large flat rocks were placed in the creek and we jumped from rock to rock. The women
prefered to take off their shoes and wade across. There were not many houses betwen the creek and La Ropa. A narrow path led down to La Madera.
Horses would use the path to get to the beach. Cri Cri
