We'll begin our day by driving through Zihuatanejo. The main part of downtown Zihuatanejo ("El Centro") is still rather old-fashioned with narrow streets made of paving-stones and where most people still walk to get around. You'll fall in love!

Next, we'll continue to Ixtapa. We'll make a couple stops for photos from the best viewpoints. We'll proceed into the countryside by driving you to a fruit plantation that provides produce in this area.

Your tour guide will also take you to see a demonstration of how local artisans make the roof tiles and bricks by hand, using ancient techniques. A very interesting stop!

Also learn about the customs and traditions of the towns in the area. Visit Petatlan, a 20 minute drive from Zihuatanejo. Here you will see the most famous cathedral, Papa Chucho Cristo De Petatlan, a church famous for its many miracles.
