Overview

Overview

Embarc® Zihuatanejo, Carretera Escencia a Playa la Ropa, Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico, 40895

Zihuatanejo is an authentic fishing village, just 20 minutes outside Ixtapa and four hours from Acapulco. Even if you have been to Mexico countless times, you've likely never experienced it quite like this. This destination, situated on the exclusive shores of Playa La Ropa, features Vacation Homes with large terraces with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, private plunge pools, and an open-air design with seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living. The charm of Zihuatanejo's original Mexican fishing village is interpreted through indigenous materials including hand-cut tiles, palapa roofs, and textured fabrics with punches of color. Everything here has been created by a collection of true artisans, handcrafted with attention paid to the smallest details. From tile motifs to ceramic sinks, the architectural design is entirely unique. The on-site infinity pool and unique dining experiences also provide great opportunities to enjoy this tropical destination.

This resort is only available for reservations by our Embarc® members.

Parks & Attractions:
Campo de Golf Palma Real (9 km)
Campo de Golf Palma Real was the original course in the region, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. Carved through the dense jungle and palms of a coconut plantation, it has the hallmarks of a traditional course with broad fairways, closely cropped rough and thick Bermuda grass greens. You may catch a glimpse of exotic birds and iguanas but take note of the signs for crocodiles that inhabit the lakes on the course!

Playa Las Gatas (3.3 km)
If you like snorkeling then Playa Las Gatas is ideal. It has a reef that forms a haven from the waves, although surfers can sometimes be seen catching waves as they curl around the entrance to the bay. Las Gatas has over a dozen restaurants specializing in seafood; it’s a great place to spend the day. Water shoes are recommended. Getting to Playa Las Gatas is easiest by one of the boats at the municipal pier. For more of an adventure, you can hike to Playa Las Gatas from the end of Playa La Ropa.

Playa La Ropa (50 m)
Playa La Ropa is the largest beach in the bay and home to Embarc™ Zihuatanejo.

Playa La Madera (200 m)
This small bay between Playa La Ropa and Playa Principal has two restaurants on the beach. There is a boardwalk that takes you into town.

Playa Principal (2.2 km)
Located by the municipal pier, Playa Principal is a hub of activity early in the morning as fisherman bring their catch to the outdoor market.

Playa Troncones (33 km)
Troncones is about a one hour drive north of Zihuatanejo. Once a remote area, there has been significant development of bed and breakfasts and small inns along the beach in the last decade. The beach stretches along four miles, great for beachcombing and with some of the most spectacular sunsets in the area. It's also a popular surf spot.

Saladita (40 km)
Saladitas is a quaint spot, located 75 minutes north of Zihuatanejo. There are a few restaurants along the beach and it is a good place for driftwood and seashells. This is the main spot for surfing, and the residence of some ‘old' surf champions. It's perfect for learning on a long board. Several local restaurants rent equipment.

Pátzcuaro (299 km)
Nestled in the highlands of the neighboring state of Michoacán, a visit to the town of Pátzcuaro is worth a few extra days in Mexico. The colonial center is filled with serene plazas, impressive churches, pretty cobbled streets and tiled adobe buildings painted white and reddish-brown. It's a beautiful place to explore the town and surrounding area around Lago de Pátzcuaro, three kilometers north. Here you will find traditional villages and a few islands. In each town craftspeople sell a variety of ceramics, brightly painted wooden products, leatherwork, wool sweaters, masks and other Michoacán artesanias. Pátzcuaro and specifically Isla Janitzio on Lago de Pátzcuaro are at the heart of Mexico´s Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) at the beginning of November.
