With that said though, I am so glad we didn't cancel! We had so much fun on this trip. We went with a group of 7 and the only sign there was any kind of flu was that some of the bars and resturants closed a little early and nothing was crowded. It was awesome. We got amazing deals on everything we did because (sadly) everyone is so desperate for tourist income right now. We got 30% our canopy tour, a 40 minute water tax to Yelapa for only $10, and specials on food at resturants. A co-worker of mine went to Cancun last week as well and had the same experience. 1 person in our group coming from Seattle had his return flight cancelled right before he left but they re-booked him on another one later that same day. Lucky dog got to stay later than the rest of us and the villa let him hang out there all day until his flight because they didn't have anyone else checking in.
None of my group or hers is sick. No one wore masks. We did practice hand washing but not as viligently has I have traveling around the US for my job. The flu is definitely slowing there and really hasn't affected the resort communities. I know PV has no confirmed or suspected cases still. The only place I would be worried about is the planes and connecting through Mexico City. Just bring lots of hand sanitizer with you and have a blast!

I'm a Canadian who has been based in Zihuatanejo - Ixtapa for a little over two years. I live here with my husband who happens to be Mexican. We both feel quite safe. The local police are great about cruising the tourist zones to deter problems from arising. Generally speaking the residents of Zihua and Ixtapa are chilled out. Zihua - Ixtapa are nice places to visit and a great places to live. :-) if you have any further questions about the area, don't hesitate to ask. Happy to help.

I found a few articles Zihuatanejo - Cruise Log - USATODAY.com
Is anyone concerned about these areas for weddings? I'm considering both of these areas, but I really need reassurance that's it's safe. Am I the only one worried about these areas? I haven't seen anyone mention them on here. Can anyone offers any words of wisdom?

I don't know how to respond, other than the usual, we hope you support us, it's our day, etc. but some people are really pushing our buttons about this.
Has anyone else had to deal with this that much? Does anyone want to share their opinion, am I missing something??
