My name is Robert Whitehead and I moved to Zihuatanejo permanently in April of 1989 from Florida. After arriving I taught English for about 9 years, mostly in private classes given in my home. I got involved with the internet by accident, making first a personal website then more and more websites for other people until it became a business. Eventually I had to choose between teaching and being a webmaster. I can’t imagine what I was thinking, but now run one of the most successful website design and hosting businesses in Zihuatanejo, and my personal website has become the most popular site for area information. The hours and the pay aren’t great, but there’s a lot to be said for being one’s own boss and having an office at home.
I am a naturalized Mexican citizen, and I’m extremely proud of both of my nationalities.
I live with my wife, Lupita, and our chihuahua Lola in our downtown Zihuatanejo home built by my wife’s parents in the early 1950’s.
