The first human occupants of the region in which Zihuatanejo lies were nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes. Later, in the 15th century, more advanced groups like the Cumbia and Panteca mined salt in the area that is now Ixtapa. When these lands became part of the Tarascan Empire, the Tarascan kings would travel here to hunt and relax. Legend holds that Zihuatanejo was the sanctuary of the Olmec goddess Cihuateotl, mother of the human race and patroness of both women and warriors slain on the battlefield.
After the colonization of the Spaniards, Zihuatanejo existed as a small fishing village surrounded by the haciendas of rich landowners and was untouched by political turmoil in Mexico until the Mexican Revolution, when both federal and rebel forces passed through the area and did some looting. After that, the town remained out of the national spotlight until the 1970s, when it enjoyed membership into the tourism industry reform movement along with balnearios like Cancun, Los Cabos, and Puerto Vallarta. Infrastructure went in, the population went up, and today Zihuatanejo is a verdant, peaceful beach destination.
