In the movie, The Shawshank Redemption, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) tells his friend Red (Morgan Freeman) that his dream is to own a small hotel on the beach in Zihuatanejo – to which Red humerously responds “Zi…what?” At the end of the movie, when the main characters reunite after being apart for years, the camera pans outward to show a beautiful, white sand beach as Andy and Red embrace. While Zihuatanejo is indeed beautiful, few people know that the beach shown at the end of the movie is actually Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. At Viscape, we love movies all most as much as we love travel. Almost, but not quite. ;) Right now there are no properties on Viscape in Zihuatanejo...if you have one, list it on our site for free. Cheers!
The Real Zihuatanejo!
