These are some of the beautiful birds that can be seen in the Zihuatanejo vicinity. Many shore birds and herons can be found in the Playa La Ropa area of Zihuatanejo, only a 20 minute walk from us. Nearby lagoons to explore include Barra de Potosi, Troncones and the lagoon at Playa Larga. Power boat rides, kayaks and birding guides can be arranged. Photo credit to our guest.
