The Archeological Museum of Coste Grande is a great place to start, getting your cultural and historical bearings so you have a framework to which you can relate everything you see. After that, it's time to check out Zihuatanejo car rentals and head off to the Pacific beach at Playa La Ropa or explore Ixtapa Island on a tour. If you want a closer acquaintance with the Pacific Ocean, you can have your pick of scuba diving, fishing, snorkeling, and other water-related activities.
Recurring Festivals and Events
In keeping with the authentic nature and location of the town are Zihuatanejo's two main yearly festivals. The International Guitar Festival in March celebrates the instrument that has had such a large part in the local culture as well as in various styles of music around the world. You can hear not only folk music, but also classical, pop, jazz, and more at this event. You may even be able to participate in the performances if you're an accomplished guitarist. The Sailfest, held in February, offers dance, live music, sailing competitions, and an auction. Profits from the Sailfest go to help the cause of educating the disadvantaged children in the locale.
