Safety Question Playa Madera

We're longtime visitors to Zihuatanejo and this trip in April are staying at Playa Madera at Villas Kau Kan. We want to walk to downtown using the malecon walkway access by the beach but is it safe to return that way after dark definitely before midnight?

Depending upon how late you are referring to, there are usually plenty of locals and tourists along the walkway. Once you reach the beach area, it is usually very dark and there are some hidden pathways behind the buildings (or at least there used to be before the current redestruction). That could put a bit of scare into some folks.

For what it is worth, I have traveled alone on this path dozens of times and have never had a problem. You could turn halfway onto Calle Adelitas and continue on that street if you are worried about the second part of the walkway.

Turning onto Calle Adelitas

OK- Apparently I'm not the only one who takes a chance...
