Regional Info

Zihuatanejo de Azueta, Guerrero, Mexico

The town of Zihuatanejo de Azueta is located in the state of Mexican state of Guerrero, on the Pacific coast of the country. The state is divided into three regions: La Montaña (mountains), Tierra Calienta (hot lands), and La Costa (the coast.)

Tourism is a driving economic factor, with towns along the coast such as Acapulco being the main source of employment. Lack of education and employment beyond the tourism industry lead to a high population of migration. Crops grown in the state include coffee, sesame seeds, sugar cane, hibiscus, peanuts, and sorghum. Guerrero is also a leading global producer of poppy flower.
