The Jewel of Zihuatenejo


On Mexico’s pacific coast, a little over 200 km north of Acapulco, lies the picturesque bay and fishing village of Zihuatenejo.

A short 10 minute drive from the resort town of Ixtapa, Zihuatenejo has its own collection of lodging and restaurants. The jewel of this collection of hotels is the subject of today’s blog.

Built into the hill above La Ropa beach, La Casa Que Canta is one of the highest rated resorts, and one of our favorites, in all of Mexico. With only 25 suites and a pair of villas, this quality resort exudes a private, romantic feel. The friendly staff adds to this environment with a high standard of service and attention to detail.

The “Terrace” suites range in size from 690 to 870 sq ft, all with a slightly different layout – each having large marble bathrooms, inviting terraces and multiple ocean views. The hand crafted furniture and artwork lends a special ambiance as well.

The list of amenities includes an excellent restaurant, bar, two pools, fitness center and a luxurious spa. Off site activities include everything you’d expect, from golf to deep sea fishing and snorkeling.

All of this adds up to a high quality yet relaxed, mellow south of the border vibe, earning La Casa Que Canta a definitive Connoisseur Corner Recommended rating..! Unquestionably one of the finest resorts in Mexico.

Just remember to learn the name of the town before you go!
