Zihuatanejo, Mexico!!!

I am lucky enough to be able to go to this wonderful little town of Zihuatanejo again this year.  My good friend and traveling partner Susie has joined me to meet up with my sister Bonnie and her husband Gary along with some other good friends. This year Susie turns 60 so this is her Suzapalooza.  A week and a half of celebrating and having fun up until her birthday on the 6th of February when we will be returning to Seattle.

Let the celebration begin!

We are once again staying at La Cas Que Ve Del Mar.  A beautiful complex on the hill up from La Ropa beach.

Our favorite thing to do while we’re here is to head to La Ropa beach in the morning and spend the entire day at a friendly restaurant called Elviras.  We spend the day laying on lounges, walking along the beach and playing in the water.

The water's perfect!

Another beautiful day!

Cervesa on ice, muy bien!

In the evenings we usually head out to one the the great restaurants for dinner.

We had dinner at El Suspiro’s one night.  It has great food and a wonderful view of Zihuatanejo and La Ropa beach.

We spent one day in Ixtapa.  What a contrast from the little fishing town of Zihuatanejo.  Ixtapa is a big tourist town with huge all inclusive resorts with hundreds of people crowded around the pools.  We had lunch at one of these resorts called Barcelo’s while overlooking the white sand beach.

And of course our trip would not be complete without going to the Sunset bar at least once during our stay.

Our time here in paradise has almost come to an end.  It’s just never long enough.  The good news is that the next stop is Las Vegas where we will continue celebrating Susies birthday!
