Located in the heart of a small fishing village, the port of Zihuatanejo is one of the largest fishing destinations in Mexico. Known for some of the best fishing on the Pacific Seaboard, Zihuatanejo is for the fishing guru and novices, alike. Go deep sea fishing and catch the giant sailfish (We caught seven on one trip) weighting up to 200 pounds! The sailfish is one of the primary staples of fishing in this area. Also, the blue Marlin and Black Marlin can weigh up to 600pounds and can take hours to catch. There are large schools of Yellow-knife Tuna and Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) anywhere from 5 to 10 miles offshore. Closer to the waves, you’ll find the Roosterfish, the powerful Grouper (Pargo), Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo, Bonito and Barracuda…. all ready for a feast of a fishing experience. Local residents are experts in fishing and licenses are not required. Feel free to bring your own equipment to fish off the beach or charter one of the hundreds of large and small fishing boats for your adventure, ranging from morning trips to 3 day excursions. Don’t worry, if you are a conservationist, local fisherman have practiced catch and release techniques for hundreds of years. Before there were paved roads, the local fisherman were catching some of the best game in Mexico and perhaps worldwide. Trips range from $125 – $600 dollars.

All three of the beaches around Villa Milagro are protected for sea turtle breeding. It’s a wonderful experience to see the locals embrace this with all their hearts as it’s only been a few short years that it’s changed from Turtle Egg Soup to now having hatcheries all over the beach. Many of our friends here in Troncones have their own breeding pens, and encourage visitors to come and help release the baby turtles. Great for the kids and for a beautiful night on the beach, everyone lines them up and let the races begin!
