Zihautanejo 2010

Earlier this spring when Alan & I were contemplating where to go for vacation this year we threw out Napa, San Francisco, San Diego, Boston, and various others.  We had somewhat settled on Napa.  Then I got an email at work from Alan with a link to The Tides Zihautanejo.  He had heard Zihautanejo mentioned in his favorite movie, Shawshank Redemption, & had always wanted to go there.  I opened the link and responded “Yes, book NOW!”.  We went last week for 4 days and it was probably one of my most favorite vacations.  Everything about it was even better than anticipated (you never know just by looking at the photos online…photoshop works wonders!).  It’s considered off-season there, since it’s hot (although it’s no worse than Houston in the summer!) and so there was hardly anyone there and we were able to get a pretty good deal.  I think there were maybe 15 couples staying at the resort, of which we saw maybe 6 of them. 
Here are some of our over 1000 pictures!  I’m pretty sure we will be making another trip in the very near future!
