If you are in Zihuatanejo, go to Acapulco by the freeway 200, then like 15 miles after Petatlan (a town half an hour from Zihuatanejo) you will see some restaurants and rocks inside the sea, there it is.

Great Place - Not really, ppl live right there in the palapas, so they don't want the tourist getting robed, ask for Los Cuates, i lived there for a lil bit, great beach, waves, scenery around the area, ther's natural wave brakers to one side so u can chill swimming in crystal clear water, i rented a room for less than 8 buck's a night, that was about 5 yrs ago,

Incredible and relax - La Barrita Guerrero is a turistic place, go there is an incredible experience, because the beach and the waves are really beautiful and huge ideal to go surfing,(you have to be careful, the beach there is dangerous because is open water), the sunset is amazing, the weather in summer is extremely hot about 45 to 52 °c, the people is friendly and honest, the restaurants are modest but the food is inexpensive and very delicious the especiality in food is devil shrimps (camarones a la diabla) you can eat this food only if you to be used to eat a very hot food, ceviche and fish (pescado a la talla)these are three really good options to eat, if you decide go there on vacation, undoubtedly you are gonna have an incredible vacations.Yo can´t miss it :-)
