Getting there & away
By car from Zihuatanejo, drive southeast on Hwy 200 toward Acapulco. The well-marked turnoff is near Km 225 just south of the Los Achotes River bridge; drive another 9km to Barra de Potosí. By bus, any Petatlán-bound bus will get you here. They depart from both of Zihua’s main terminals, and from the stop a couple of blocks east of Zihua’s market. Tell the driver to let you off at the Barra de Potosí crucero; from there you can catch a camioneta (pickup truck) going the rest of the way. The total trip by bus takes about 90 minutes and costs about M$30. By taxi from Zihua costs M$400/500 one-way/round-trip (negotiable).
