COCONUT GROVE/HUERTA, PLAYA LARGA, MEXICO
CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE
Does this look like the road to paradise, or what?! A coconut grove is called a "huerta de cocos", and this is the huerta at Playa Larga. There are numerous endless huertas of coconut plantations all along our coast, which is known as "La Costa Grande".

This is one of my favorite restaurants for hanging out at Playa Larga called "Popeye's"; remember, "e" sounds like a long "a" so we say po-PAY-es ... seriously! POPEYE'S RESTAURANT AT PLAYA BLANCA, ZIHUATANEJO, GUERRERO, MEXICO

Playa Larga means "long beach", and as you can see this beach is quite long. So long, in fact, that the far end has another name: Playa Blanca. About 9½ miles of unspoiled beach here. Think you can find a spot?

The hill to the left is the end of Playa Larga /Playa Blanca known as el Cerro de Guamilule where you'll find a laguna and the small village of Barra de Potosí. Put end-to-end with the above photo and you get a good idea of the length of this beach. The islands to the right are guano-covered islands called Los Morros de Potosí. A good diving & fishing area!

A MANANTIAL EMERGES FROM BENEATH A GIANT PAROTA, ZIHUATANEJO, MEXICO

To the left Lupita & I are standing next to the mouth of a spring (manantial) which emerges from beneath this giant parota tree. This is possibly the oldest & largest of its kind left in our area since the Spaniards cleared all our forests to sell overseas in Asia & Europe around 400 years ago. GIANT PAROTA

View from lighthouse path
CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE
This is one of the many spectacular views you can enjoy from the footpath between Playa Las Gatas and the lighthouse. If you go there be sure to take a camera. Also, as you approach the lighthouse give a hearty hail to the lighthouse keeper so that you don't walk up on him and scare the bejeezus out of him during his siesta.

Days drift by slowly on the beach! You'll find palapas like these in front of many hotels and restaurants. This photo was taken at Playa La Ropa in Zihuatanejo. Palapas on Playa La Ropa

If you walk between La Ropa Beach & town you'll enjoy many views like this one taken from above Playa Madera. Here you can see the Playa Municipal which is the town beachfront in Zihuatanejo. There's a footpath along the waterfront you can follow between Playa Madera and the Playa Municipal.

"Roberto!" took this great shot of La Ropa Beach while dangling under a parachute being hauled around the bay by a speedboat. Part of La Casa Que Canta can be seen to the extreme left. Villa de la Roca is the white building with the red roof to the left on the top of the cliff. The "mushroom" building near the center of the photo is part of Casa Que Canta (part of which is also visible to the extreme left), and the Sotavento and Catalina hotels above Playa La Ropa are visible right behind it.
