Swimming in Ixgtapa can be a challenge because of the surf. However, swimming at Playa la Ropa is wonderful because it is sheltered from the Pacific by a relatively small opening into Zihuatanejo Bay.

We always walk over to Playa la Ropa & sit at La Perla. Beautiful beach & sand & the water is never rough. This is our favourite beach in Zihua. Can't wait to be there again.
