Sea Mouthfuls

Zihuatanejo, located in the state of Guerrero on the Mexican Pacific coast, is a wonderful place to relax, to swim, to surf, sunbathe, to walk on the beach, and of course, to eat.

A visit to La Ropa beach always comes along with the traditional snacks and local dishes: fresh fish and seafood. Nothing tastier than sharing a meal with friends overlooking the sea. 
My favorites are the Tiritas de pescado (fish strips), which are strips of raw fish marinated with lemon and lots of onion. Pescadillas are other well known snack: corn tortilla stuffed with marlin, fried and served with salsa. Matched of course, with a cold beer. Just be careful that you don´t sprinkle it with some sand or salted sea water. It happens when you just came out of the waves and eat on the sand separated only by a tablecloth...

In the background, a man plays his guitar and sings. Families are laughing and talking. I´m happy, I´ve saved a plate. The water is clean and reflects a beautiful blue color.
