Hola,
I am heading to Zihua in a couple weeks for the first time. I have searched the site but can not find any current threads with suggestions for tour guides to go to petatlan and the ruins. I did see information on using the bus system but I am not very confident trying that. I had reached out to the sites recommended guides but they are booked for the time I will be there. Any guidance would be very appreciated.

Kiva Tours, Ullysis S Solono, +52-755-559-3023, one time we found someone at the Museo to take us. You need another guide at the pyramid. After your visit go to Bara de Pototsi for lunch and drive back to Zihua along the beach. Enjoy

Try Jose Guzman. http://josecitytour.com/ He is not the cheapest but he is good and has nice transportation. Also his family restaurant (Las Adelitas) has become very popular with the residents of La Ropa. We have used his service when we have out of town guests and do not want to drive ourselves as he has a newer Suburban that can handle a large group.

We have used Juan Carlos Garcia since 2011. Nice man, nice family. Have gotten to know him well and always have dinner at his house once each visit. Very accommodating,

Tell him Jerry from Sacramento, CA referred you!

Too bad he offers tours with tortured dolphins or I'd also link to and recommend his services.

I wish more people would because he's a nice guy and I'd like to help him out if I can.

Myself and some friends hired Ulises for a trip to Morelia and Patzcuaro as well as the Monarch butterfly reserve this past February.
He has a nice spacious van and is a nice person. Unfortunately he didn’t explain any of the history of the areas we visited.
I’ve been on tours in Athens Greece, Costa Rica and Morocco which were all awesome.
We arrived in Morelia and Patzcuaro and learned from the hotel receptionist that everything was closing at 7:00 PM.
We also found out as well that the island in lake Patzcuaro was closed due to Covid.
Had we known this beforehand we probably wouldn’t have gone until another time.
IMO Ulises should have known what was happening with the Covid.

Thanks for the feedback, Tocayo. I agree 100%.

Sorry to have caught up to this thread late. See Z Travel Tour Guide is terrific. Huge late model van, seatbelts, perfect English (that I understand was taught by Rob) and a government certified guide. If there is a glitch in your arrangements contact Roberto.

I'm hoping my friend Roberto Velasco is still giving tours. He had me pull his website offline after a family tragedy. I hope he'll want it put back up soon. He's an extremely good and decent person who studied hard to learn English as well as to get his federal tour guide credential.
