Playa Las Gatas - Beach Zihuatanejo - Mexico

Based on the crowds, this is easily Zihuatanejo’s most popular beach both in and out of tourist season. Water taxis from the downtown pier at Playa Municipal only cost $3.50 roundtrip. This is the best beach to take the kids to because the waves are blocked off by a rock wall making the water here very much like a lake. The beach is lined with restaurants and places to rent snorkel gear or purchase beach accessories. Don’t forget to take the time to get a massage!
