Travel Picture Perfect: Playa Las Gatas, Zihuatanejo September 12, 2009 Lydia Gregory 1 Comment By Lola This is the pier in Las Salinas where we caught the water taxi (or panga). Heading towards the beach. Hillside homes. There were some really rockin' mansions, too, but I'm sure they always get all the attention. This is the new pier at Las Gatas. Before they built this you had to jump off on a couple of cement steps that were half-submerged and a bit slimy. My orangeade, with bee protector. Tiritas, a traditional fisherman's dish. Recipe: Throw your line off the side of your boat, catch a snapper, dorado or something similar. Cut into strips, toss with fresh onion and marinate for a few hours in lots of lime juice. Sprinkle with coarse salt to taste, garnish with avocado and serve with saltines or tortilla chips. Enjoy. Ceviche, Zihuatanejo style. Start with fresh fish (see above), then Google the recipe. It's too long to write down here. The view from my lounge chair, left side. The view from my lounge chair, straight ahead. I'll owe you the view on the right hand side, since at this point I decided to quit with the pictures and jump in the water.
