Legend has it that centuries before the European conquistadores arrived
on Mexican shores, a Tarascan leader named Caltzonzin built a rock wall in the harbor to protect his people's women so they could swim safely in the sea. The wall still stands today, in Zihuatanejo (which means the place of women), for blessedly little has changed in the landscape here: even the more developed and luxurious Ixtapa, or Place of White Sand, offers rawly beautiful expanses of nature just outside its cultivated landscapes. Zihua grants Ixtapa authenticity, and Ixtapa lends Zihua luxury, creating a vacation getaway of harmonic balance.
