- The water´s temperature year round is between 75 and 86 degrees
- Storms are virtually non-existent because Zihua is nestled in a natural harbor, so "lost fishing time is mostly margarita-related", says gitanasportfishing.com (1)
- There's always abundant sailfishing, and in certain months it´s mixed up with large yellowfin tuna, blue marlin, dorado, black, striped marlin and roosterfish.

"Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks whistle while they waddle into the Turtle Pond for their morning dip. Green Military Macaws and Yellow-Headed Amazon Parrots 'converse' at amplified volumes. The Chachalacas, which resemble wild turkeys, are even more boisterous!," writes Canter, adding: "Jewel-like colibris shimmer in the sunlight, their tiny wings aflutter like high-speed engines".
This might also be your best chance to view safely behind a glass, boa constrictors, scorpions and even marvel at the impressive 60-feet long skeleton of a sperm whale.
A crocodile program is also planned for later this year.
El Refugio de Potosi is a non profit venture, developed and funded by contributions and many volunteer hours, that has earned the support of the tourism community in Zihua and which has become a popular stop on eco-tours such as the serene early morning kayak/birdwatching trip on the lagoon at Refugio de Potosi offered by Zoe Kayak Tours (2)

A popular Zihua recipe for "Tiritas" consists of:
- Fresh fish, tuna, dorado, gruper, sailfish, marlin, bonito
- Lime juice
- Red onion
- Chiles serranos
Cut the filet of fish in thin strips ("Tiritas"), then cut the red onion and the chiles the same way. Cook the fish in the lime juice by allowing it to marinate for about 20 minutes. Place the fish strips on the plate, then on the fish, lay the red onion, chiles and salt. Pile on to corno chips or crackers.
Buen provecho! (Enjoy!)

- You always envisioned your wedding dress softly dancing with the sea breeze while sunlight highlights your hair
- If you close your eyes, you can hear the murmur of the waves in the background while you say "I do!"
- If you think the best treat to your senses are lush gardens and tropical flowers
- You always dreamed of your maids of honor barefoot in the sand
- If you think wedding banquets in hotels are for people that lack imagination
To top this all, another great advantage, according to Lorin of San Francisco is what you can save by having a seaside wedding in Zihuatanejo: "I spent half of what my friends did on their weddings" (http://www.bride.com/)
So, honey, check out these faaaabulous Villas in Zihuatanejo and... make your dream come true!

Yet for $1,000 usd per night you can rent a Luxury Villa just for yourself and family and friends with 4 suites (8 persons) AND private infinity pool and jacuzzi, free cable & internet access, all the services included and the best view of the beautiful Zihuatanejo Bay (check it out for yourself at
To "rest my case", let's do the math: in Tides Zihuatanejo Hotel you would need to ditch out $1,400 dlls per night for the 4 rooms needed to accommodate 8 persons (2 per room), compared to the $1,000 bucks you would pay in a Luxury Villa, a savings of 40%! ... and let me tell you that the experience of staying in a Villa surely beats staying at a hotel in privacy, exclusivity, uniqueness and the "overall enjoyment" factor.
So now you know-- next time enjoy your vacations more while you spend less by renting a Luxury Villa!
