ViZIHtantes Tranquilos

Guerrero's health officials confirm 12 currently active cases of Covid-19 in Zihuatanejo, 121 in Acapulco, and 402 in the entire state. It appears to be spreading in the parts of the state where it gets colder but not so much here along the coast.

With the change in tourism from mostly nationals to a healthy dose of foreigners, one notable change is the noise level. While foreigners tend to shout louder when conversing, including in the streets at all hours of the day and night, they don't tend to patronize the noisiest of the bars nor to walk around with boomboxes or drive around in boombox cars. So during this season we enjoy a degree of tranquility that we don't enjoy when there are more national tourists, who usually pour in on the weekends. Unfortunately our noise problem appears to be totally ignored by our local government who seems to be only focused on finding more places to pour more damn cement. Noise pollution is a public health problem, and I'll continue taking every opportunity I can to remind our local government of this until it acts responsibly on the matter. They continue promoting noisy events and issuing permits that allow noisy bars to operate later than midnight downtown thus not allowing hard-working locals or our paying visitors to sleep well at night, and this has caused many local lodgings to become uninhabitable as well as many residents to move away. A damn shame! And unacceptable!

A 2-bedroom condo with a spacious living/dining area and a balcony overlooking a garden and pool at La Ceiba. Includes a fully-equipped kitchen and secure parking.

The earlier you arrive at the waterfront fish market, the better the pickings. Even after sunrise there are still some good fish to be found.
