Waves gently roll along Playa Blanca beach, a slightly out-of-the-way beach that lets travelers leave the crowds behind. Travelers taking a break from the surf can grab a bit at one of the rustic diners (think sand floors, thatched roofs, plastic tables and rainbow-colored hammocks strapped to the support beams. Playa Blanca beach is about 40 minutes from Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa. (taken August 2007). Photo by Patrick Schneider
