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.

My experience in Mexico has been that the oldest hotels are on the best beach. First come, first served. This is certainly the case with Playa la Ropa. Breezy because it faces the opening of the bay to the ocean, the old hotels are built from the beach up the hill, so that the views are spectacular. The mangroves come... More

We have stayed at Intrawest for a few years in a row now and for a Mexico beach this one is quite nice. There were very few vendors this time of year and enough sand for visitors and locals to enjoy. We saw plenty of baby turtles released at dusk throughout our week long stay from various resorts up and... More

Long beach. Good sand. Moderate waves. Clean. Good restaurants on the beach too. Highly recommended. The best one in Zihuatanejo, hands down.

The beach is exceptionally clean for a public beach. People seem to care and keep it that way. One can see people picking up debris as they stroll. The water is warm and the underwater sand underfoot has no surprises. The beach is peppered with a few really good little local restaurants. Water sports of all kinds can be booked... More

clean place, but a little busy. During a high season will be much busier. Everybody has access to it and there are vendors with their stuff to sell

I have been coming to ixtapa-Zihuatanejo for about 15 years now and a day at Playa la Ropa is a must do. I appreciate it even more now that I have two young children as it is easy to get to, the kids have a good time and I can relax. The beach is amazing. Low waves, no major undercurrent,... More
