This weekly series focuses on budget hotel gems we discover while on the road. This week: Posada Ziga in Mazunte, Mexico.
Unlike the hippie/backpacker friendly Zipolite, the Mazunte locals still live very much off the land.
During the 1960s and 1970s a hippie counterculture began to congregate on this isolated beach and, thanks in part to the limited law enforcement, Zipolite steadily gained a reputation in Mexico as a free love paradise, which continued strongly into the 1980s.
We have had some amazing ups and disappointing downs, and share with you here our tops & flop moments, experiences and recommendations below.
