Last month we decided to take a quick trip to one of my favourite places in México: Zihuatanejo, Guerrero. Pete and I had a lot to celebrate, his birthday, the 6 year anniversary of the time we met for the first time, and also my new swimsuit collection. He had never been to Zihua before so I was really excited to show him this place where I have great childhood memories and also very good friends.
The thing about Zihua, while they get a lot of international tourists, it’s not a very big tourist destination for mexicans. And that’s truly a shame, I’m convinced we ought to change that. So this is how I convince you too…
We were welcomed at the airport by Chris, who gave us a ride to La Casa Mx in Playa la Ropa. Where our amazing ocean front room was ready for us. We settled in and then we decided to walk down the street to have and incredible dinner at The Rooftop.
The food was exquisite, the service is top, the sky was absolutely perfect, I could go on and on about the design of the place, I would not be done. But I’m going to be completely honest here and say that, the best part was seeing all the waiters wearing the uniform shirts I had created for them. Oh, that felt sooo amazing, I can’t even begin to explain. It was my own personal little runway and my heart was filled with joy. I’m always so honoured to work with the creative minds behind Loot.
After that amazing night, we head down to the beach the next morning. We took some photos, drank some micheladas, and of course I got a beautiful hand made mexican clutch.
There are a lot of fun activities at the beach but when you are staying at a place like La Casa Mx, you literally want to savor every minute there. So we headed back for a tanning session at rooftop pool.
Later that night, Lauren, ultra sweet and beautiful host of the house invited us for drinks at a gorgeous beach that’s just around 30 minute car ride from where we were. This place is called Troncones, and it is truly magical, completely off the beaten path. We witnessed a beautiful sunset while sipping on some mezcal cocktails. Once we were tipsy enough we headed to the local fair, which was a total adventure. We fought some taco guys over quesadillas and rode the bumper cars more times than most kids there did. At first they were like: “No, you can’t drink and drive your bumper car” but then soon realised how stupid that sounded.
Our last morning in Zihua we took some photos of my new collection and had lunch at Loot before it was time to come back home. That was a whole other adventure. If you follow me on Insta Stories you probably know what I’m talking about.
I hope I have sparked your interest in visiting this amazing place. Do let me know if I did so I can share some more info with you!
