Casa Almendro is located in the lushly landscaped gated and very secure complex of La Ceiba Suites in the Playa Madera district. La Ceiba Suites complex is conveniently and centrally located close to the town center of Zihuatanejo so no car is necessary as you are just steps away from all amenities. Despite being so close to town it is an amazingly private and quiet location. Within short walking distance from the condo there are too numerous to count delicious restaurants serving a broad range of tastes and prices, shopping and entertainment. If needed, taxis and buses are available to you just outside of La Ceiba Suites doors for just a few pesos. Playa Madera beach is an easy short 0.2 mile 5 minute walk from the condo and Playa La Ropa is an approximate 15 minute walk or 5 minute bus/taxi ride. La Ceiba Suites complex has a strong Mexican architectural feel with well manicured lush tropical vegetation throughout. Our condo, Casa Almendro, is a very private and spacious 1020 sqf unit found on the 2nd floor of the complex. Casa Almendro has a very spacious open air concept with Mexican architectural influences with rich tropical hardwoods found throughout the unit. There are views of the tropical landscaping from every window and from the additional two spacious balconies found in the condo. The master bedroom has a king bed with nice quality mattress and pillows, over the bed fan, in room air conditioning and in-suite full bath with walk in shower, stone detailing and Talavera ceramic sink. Right off the master bedroom tropical hardwood french doors lead you to a large open private balcony with built in cushioned seating overlooking the lush vegetation and common area below. A second large full bath with stone detailing tub/shower and ceramic Talavera sink is conveniently located off of the main living area. The main living area stays very comfortable with the 3 overhead fans and the open air balcony providing good air circulation.

Playa La Madera Beach (easy walk)
Car: not necessary

It is an easy 0.2 mile (5 minute walk) from the condo to La Madera Beach where you will find a nice sandy beach you can sun bathe, swim, enjoy a beautiful sunset, have a drink, snack, or enjoy a traditional Mexican meal in one of the cafes and bistros located on the beach stretch. From La Madera beach, you can walk along the beach walkway to town to enjoy the numerous restaurants, shopping and entertainment. There is a wide choice of dining in every direction from the condo that cover a broad range of tastes and prices. If you want to get out a bit further, taxis and local buses are readily available outside of the La Ceiba Suites entrance for a very reasonable fee. Find the 'Zihuatanejo Artisans' Market' on Calle 5 de Mayo in downtown Zihuatanejo just one block from the waterfront and beginning across from the church. The market is made up of multiple small stalls for a shoppers delight. For a real taste of old Mexico, take a short walk to visit the open air 'Mercado' off of Benito Juarez. It has a vibrant Mexican feel with a large selection of little shops, restaurants and stalls selling fresh local produce, meats and goods. There are activities galore and numerous beaches to visit locally such as Playa Principal, Playa La Madera, Playa La Ropa and one of our favorites is Playa Las Gatas which can be reached by water taxi from the main pier. However, if you get the itch to get out a bit further for the day there are several small beach communities that are fun to travel to by bus or taxi such as Playa El Palmar in Ixtapa, Isla Ixtapa, Playa Troncones, Playa Larga, Playa Blanca and Barra de Potosi. All of these beach communities have numerous beachfront restaurants with activities available to entertain anyone. If relaxation is your goal, grab a hammock, a good book or a siesta. Zihuatanejo has the old-fashioned charm of traditional Mexican culture. It is a town that sprang up from a handful of families who were mostly fishermen. Fishing continues to be a way of life for a large number of the local families and the the area is a popular sport fishing destination. Zihuatanejo's main attraction is its well-protected bay where traveling boaters often spend the winter months moored in its peaceful bay. The bay offers various beaches for relaxation, recreation, dining, or simply enjoying the abundantly beautiful scenery and laid-back local lifestyle. Zihuatanejo is the ideal vacation destination away from high rise hotels, fast food outlets and big box stores. The main part of downtown Zihuatanejo referred to as 'El Centro' is still rather old-fashioned with narrow streets made of paving-stones and where most people still walk to get around. The Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International Airport is located about 15 minutes from town by car or taxi. It is possible to find direct flights from Canada and the U.S. especially during the peak vacation season between December and April. Zihuatanejo provides a warm and sunny climate year round with a short rainy season between July and October. Most visitors come to the area between mid November and late April but the low season also provides beautiful sunny weather with rains typically in the evenings keeping the areas vegetation lush.
