Confirmation of walking route

If I want to walk from the south end of La Ropa into town, along the beach, the following is my understanding ....... please comment if I am mistaken - - thanks.

Once I get to the north end of La Ropa, I must go up the hill/slope via stairs to street level. Then walk northbound along street or sidewalk until I can take stairs? down to Madera. From this point, I can walk along the beach the rest of the way into town.

Is this correct?

There are some great vistas from the high portions of that walk . If you have have no particular goal I would cross the canal at the end of the Madera pathway and finish walking the paseo along Playa Principal past many shops and restaurants and the basketball court and fisherman's area all the way to the pier . This is where the Las Gatas ferry leaves from .

Take note just before you cross the first canal , the street along the madera side of the canal is Calle Adelita with many worthy dining options . A cab can deliver you there for supper and you can cross the canal as you please to access the town to walk around . We prefer the beach route from Calle Adelita because there are sometimes musicians at the restaurants or the basketball court . Directly across from the basketball court there is access to a pedestrian only walking and shopping area . Cross the road , make a short right past a liquor store to get some ice cream or a fresh fruit , hand made mexican popsicle , a paleta , a national specialty teeming with real fruit . Wander at will day or night . Cab back if you choose .
