Driving from Zihuatanejo:

Drive south out of town on the main road (Mex 200), first going up the hill with topiary trees in the median and then downhill towards Acapulco and the airport. After the road flattens out, there is a sign and a left turn towards Acapulco. This is easy to miss since the main part of the road seems to go straight. If you do miss it and go straight, you go to the Zihuatanejo airport.

After making the left turn, you still are on Mex 200 and soon pass through the small town of Coacoyul. Three miles from the turn, there is a Pemex on the right. Three miles further, you cross a small bridge at the small village of Los Achotes. Immediately after the speed bump, turn right into the village and proceed on that road for about 4 miles as it winds towards the coast. It dead ends at the Playa Blanca beach road where you turn left. Proceed for about one mile until you pass the schools of Barra de Potosi. Sendas del Mar is immediately past; you will recognize it by the long terracota wall and immense wood gate. Ring the bell to call our managers. Driving time from Zihuatanejo is a bit less than 35 minutes.
