Playa Loma Bonita is located 40 minutes (25 miles) south of the Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo airport. The area is rich in natural beauty, offering unique experiences and fun activities for all kinds of travelers. Loma Bonita, Mexico is a small community in Guerrero. The name means 'beautiful mound' in reference to the area's lush green hills. The town of Petatlan is only 10 minutes away and offers shops, restaurants, and markets.
Gustavo is happy to transport guests in a Suburban from the airport. A rental car is not necessary but if you care to venture out during your stay, it may be nice to have your own car. Past guests have found good deals on (website hidden). Please be aware that if you rent a car, typically, as is true in other foreign countries, an auto insurance surcharge will be added to your bill. If you forget something, our staff is happy to go into town to get it for you, for the cost of the item plus a nominal tip.
Other Things to Note
Comercial Mexicana in Zihuatanejo is like a Costco and is probably the best place to stock up on food and beverages for your stay. We suggest stopping there on your way from the airport to Playa Loma Bonita. Otherwise there are plenty of markets in Petatlan. But for our wine drinking guests, it can be somewhat difficult to get wine there. Tequila, not a problem!
We have a cook and a chef who are happy to prepare any meals you prefer. Thomasa, our cook, charges $5 per person for breakfast including fresh juice and $9 per person for lunch and dinner non-inclusive of drinks. She is happy to prepare any or all meals for you. She also does the dishes. We also have an excellent chef, Carmen, who is Cordon Bleu trained and charges $12-15 per person for dinner.
There are also a couple restaurants just down the beach that are delicious, as well as a local pizzeria.
The villas and the bungalows have air conditioning with the exception of the second bedroom in the second villa. Most of our guests love the fans and never feel the need for the air conditioning. The property gets a nice breeze and all the doors and windows open to allow the breeze in. Of course you are welcome to use the air conditioning if it makes you more comfortable. But because of the expensive energy costs in Mexico, we do charge a fee of $25/day for the use of air conditioning. This fee covers all the guest units in your party.
The villa at Loma Bonita was beyond words, the location is hard to beat, almost private beach, incredible views from every part of the villa, the outdoor lounge space was great place to hang out and the pool was very hard to leave. Staying there made for one of the best vacations I've been on!
