UPDATED on 3/8/18 – Zihuatanejo is in Guerrero, Mexico. It is the lesser-known counterpart to Ixtapa, a famous Mexico travel destination. The cities are only a few minutes apart by car or bus. The state of Guerrero is considered one of the most dangerous states in Mexico by the US Department of State. We live in Michoacan, a neighboring state of Guerrero, and also a ‘DO NOT TRAVEL’ zone for American tourists. We have lived here for 4.5 years and we are content. It’s definitely not perfect, but it is home. We only have to travel 3 to 4 hours to the nearest beach and they are truly gorgeous.
Media shows us the “ugly” truth but media can also twist and exaggerate for its own benefit. After all, it is a money-making business. Media usually focuses on the negative side of things because that is what sells. I would much prefer happiness and love and beauty. But to be on the safe side, if you are going to come visit us in Southern Mexico, read this article from Mexico News Daily and follow the simple warnings listed at the end of their post.
Without further ado, here are 53 Photos of The Gorgeous Beaches of Zihuatanejo, Guerrero in Beautiful Mexico from our December girls-only getaway ;-)
I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!
