We have been coming to Zihuatenejo, Mexico for well over 20 years. We would usually stay for 2-3 weeks. Unfortunately we had to cancel this years trip because of the Covid pandemic. Two of our good friends did go and this is what they saw happen on last Thursday November 26, 2020. One of our friends sent me the photo plus his notes from observing this event. We hope the crocodile is okay.

A Blue Flag lady and a kayaker were keeping an eye on it. The kayaker would spot the croc, race toward it while banging his oar on the kayak, presumably to get it to move along. Yup, the croc emptied the bay of swimmers.
Croc kept enjoying a swim around the north end of the beach.
At approximately 12:30, a group of beach vendors and one tourist wrestled the croc into a net near the rocks below the EMBARC.
No idea if it was taken for croc steak or rehoused. "
"Croc was taken to one of the Ixtapa lagoons for further instruction on beach compliance and access rules."
P.S. Just got another email from our friends:
