at the southern end of Playa Larga beach and about 20 minutes south of
the Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa airport and 35 minutes drive from the seaside fishing
village of Zihuatanejo.

wonderful sea food restaurants, a number of small hotels and a variety

How to get Barra de Potosi by bus:
You can catch the Omnibus
bus to Petatatlan and asked to be let off at the Barra de Potosi turn
off at Los Achotes. You can get the Petatlan bus from the small depot
on Calle Las Palmas street just across from the Bancrecer bank which is
on the main street of Zihua.
It should take about 30 minutes including stops along the way to dropoff
and pick up passengers.
From that drop off point on
the main coastal rd. Rt 200, you can catch a ride on the shuttle (covered
pick up with seat bench's) that makes the run from the main road to the
beach about every 30 minutes. That last leg to the beach which is partially
paved and part dirt road should take about 15 minutes. Another option
is to go by taxi. Cost should be about $ 300 and the bus cost about 30 pesos (approximately) "Taxi
