Zihuatanejo, once a small fishing village, is now a thriving community with many restaurants, shops, markets, hotels, and small guest lodgings as well as banks, hospitals, schools and other services found in most communities. Ixtapa, located about 7 kilometers (4¼ miles) from Zihuatanejo, is a modern government-planned resort community with generally more luxurious restaurants, discoteques, shops and boutiques as well as high-rise condominiums and hotels, 2 golf courses, and a marina.


To reach Casa Kau-Kan from the airport follow the new 4-lane highway north towards Zihuatanejo, turn left at the sign for Playa Larga, follow the road to the ocean and turn right. Casa Kau-Kan is about a kilometer (½ mile) from the intersection down a dirt road that runs parallel to the beach between other beachfront properties and a plant nursery. From Zihuatanejo simply take the highway south towards the airport and turn right at the sign for Playa Larga.

The beach is so long that about half of its southern end is known as Playa Blanca, and at the extreme southern end there is a large lagoon and small fishing village called La Barra de Potosí where many palm-frond roofed restaurants, known as enramadas, serve a variety of fresh seafood daily. There are also boat and kayak tours of the lagoon available as well as horseback riding tours. If you would like to go fishing or diving, charters and tours are available in Zihuatanejo.
