Rob we understand the hardship

Hopefully Zihuatanejo will receive government tourism funds to better promote the area once travel restrictions and the virus is under control.

I think I hurt myself laughing. 'Pérame un minuto...

Jeeeeeez. Well, the national government can't promote local destinations, and our local destination hasn't promoted itself since the 90's except to tour bus companies (gotta look busy, right? when in doubt simulate). Any money the government "finds" is spent on crap we don't need like a CONCRETE GARDEN so that pockets can be lined and political favors paid. The Ixtapa hotels are already so cheap all the shops and restaurants in the centros comerciales are going broke and closing, and some more influyentes want to add another 1000+ All-Included hotel rooms to the pot which will cheapen the destination even more and possibly cost us more jobs in the long run than they will produce, besides privatizing and ruining Playa Manzanillo. Once a destination kills its golden goose, that's it. Its "golden age" doesn't come back. And we've been on the verge of that for a while, which is what motivates me to work as hard as (I think) I do. ;-)
