Location

Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico

Playa Blanca is a fishing village with approximately 300 people just south of the home. In Playa Blanca you can eat fresh caught fish with your feet in the sand 30 feet from the ocean.

The Lagoon surrounding Playa Blanca attracts bird watchers and the Audubon Society does bird counts in the lagoon once every year. You can rent a boat and spend an hour or 2 in a fantastic bird sanctuary.

If you care to fish or whale watch or to just take a pleasure trip, boats with local captains are available. We will arrange the booking for you.

Playa Blanca has at least 10 Enramada restaurants where you sit on the sand while you eat. People make a day out of it, lounging for hours, eating and swimming in the ocean, just steps away from the restaurants. The little town also has a charming restaurant called Doña Emy's for classic Mexican home cooking, and a new bar called Chayo's Tortuga Bar.

There are many restaurants just north of 39 Playa Blanca, less than a mile away. They serve lunch and dinner and are great for big groups. Chula Vida and Lagartas are two of our favorites. We can organize reservations. The cuisine includes fresh caught fish, vegetables, salad, and cocktails. All safe to eat!
