ZIHesta Relajante

As of today Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 1,334 confirmed cases of Covid-19, 98 that have resulted in fatalities, 35 that are currently active, and approximately 1,114 that have recovered. Still no apparent spike. Hopefully there won't be one.

It used to be that everyone here enjoyed a peaceful siesta time, but with the arrival of so many people from other places where it is not respected or observed, it gets more difficult to take time off from the day just to be with close family and/or friends to eat la comida and then to relax afterwards. Used to be no one ever knocked on your door or called you on the phone during the time between 2 to 5, and the streets were quiet and people respectful of others. We still observe and practice siesta the old fashioned way. We don't answer the door or the phone, and we certainly don't call on others. We recharge our batteries relaxing during the hottest part of the day before going back to work or doing the other chores and tasks that await us. My favorite cultural tradition! I could never again live where siesta wasn't observed.

Speaking of relaxing, some of the best lodgings for relaxing on vacation can be found on my website. See my personal recommendations.
