The beach is amazing and the people who live on or around this beach work hard to keep it as such for the likes of us.

This beach has nice deep sand, and sits in a pretty good sized cove. Be careful of the undertow, which is fairly strong and can catch you off guard. Nice restaurants (La Perla) on the beach, parasailing, fly boarding, and even a banana boat. Would definitely come back.

November is a great month to visit Playa la Ropa. It's quiet, but he weather is dry and warm. Fewer people means a quiet and peaceful beach.

I grew up on the north shore of PEI which has some great beaches. This deserves the title of being amongst the top ten public beaches in the world

It's perfect for long walks and sunsets. It's well kept up and clean. There are some interesting vendors that sell along the beach. I bought some beautiful jewelry for CHEAP!!

You cant miss this beach if you are in the area. Sure, everything costs a little more here, but it is still very affordable for such a beautiful location, and now that there are no more cruise ships coming and blocking your bay views it is even better. Everything you need for a great beach vacation is here. Great soft... More

Just come here as fast as you can! Zihua is such a magical place. Been to many of (the Best beaches in the Carribean) Playa la Ropa beats them all.
