Barra de Potosi & Zihuatanejo, Ixtapa, Troncones are sister destinations located in the State of Guerrero, Mexico on the Pacific Coast in the area known as the Mexican Rivera. All are serviced by the Zihuatanejo - Ixtapa International Airport. Each of these unique beach vacation spots is located within a short drive of each other.


Petatlan is famous for two things, its church, and gold. If you want Silver jewellery, Zihuatanejo is the place to go. If you want gold jewellery Petatlan is the place to visit.

If you are not familiar with Mexico's country side it is worth the drive to Petatlan, from Zihu. (Zihuatanejo) just for the scenery.

If you are into graveyards, there is, along the way, on a hillside, a large cemetery with many Mexican style structures.

North of Acapulco, Mexico, about 110 Km. and South of Zihuatanejo, about 30 Km. is a little hill surrounded by thousands of hectares of fertile valley. Though it only extends above the surrounding coconut trees by a mere 200 M., the hill gives, except for the trees and Cacti that adorn its peak, an unobstructed view of a vast basin that at one time was the home to some 300,000 Aztec Indians.

Barra de Potosí is a small beachside village which is nestled at the southern end of Playa Larga beach and about 20 minutes south of the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa airport and 35 minutes drive from the seaside-fishing village of Zihuatanejo .

Barra de Potosi boasts some wonderful seafood restaurants, a number of small hotels and a variety of rental properties from simple to elegant. It is also the location of our famous wild life sanctuary lagoon.

Playa Larga (long beach) is 9 1/2 miles of pristine, unspoiled beach backed by an almost unbroken line of palm trees and wild fauna, conveniently interspersed with small thatched roofed family operated fresh seafood restaurants (Enramadas) where you can stop for a bite, a cool drink and relax in the shade. If you like horseback riding, or hiking on a truly grand beach, this is the place.

The Barra de Potosi village area is also the home of our famous bird and wildlife sanctuary located on a 4 1/2 mile saltwater Lagoon, which boasts a rich variety of birds and local wild life. Small boats are available for sightseeing and photography.
