Ixtapa – Zihuatanejo

Yes, those are sails you see in the photo! We actually had nice wind on our 5-mile trip from Isla Grande to Ixtapa Marina. The channel going into the marina was very skinny and a bit shallow. We did not touch the bottom, so that was good.

The first night, we met the crew from Rebecca Leah for beers at Fishers restaurant at the marina, and then went for dinner at Tanta Vida, a beach restaurant, a 10-minute walk from the boat.

We also met our other neighbor, below.

We call him Harvey!

The next day, we hit Zihuatanejo to check in with the port captain and check out the town. Zihuatanejo is a fun, energetic, artsy town. There are a lot of great restaurants. Well, so we have heard, and we will verify! We did find a good pizza place for dinner. We will explore more in the next few days.


  1. Hey Mar!
    I love seeing your smiling face. I see that you will be in the US again soon. Let me know if you have time for a brew.
    I just saw Linney and McMurtry from Pine MS and have forwarded a blog post to them so that they can follow you too. Unfortunately, it was a very sad event. We were at a memorial service. Nancy Watson’s son was killed in a Care Flight crash along with four others on board. It has been a rough time. Sending hugs!
