While this is a beautiful beach it can get a little crowded. Vendors do not disturb you, but they have there fair share of Parasailing, jet skis and ride the big banana guys trying to make a living.

This was a short walk down from our resort. We spent two days on this beach. The food it really good.The drinks are cold. My favorite part was when a boat came up on the beach with all kinds of beautiful sea shells. SO HAVE SOME CASH for that. (3-7$)

Have spent almost 90 days on Playa La Ropa and would not trade one day for any other beach.There are a number of great dining choices on the bay and above. A walk to Las Gaviotas or a climb up to Casa Kau Kan and a whole host of others. The water sports run the range from the docile to... More

Very pretty. Make sure you go in the morning. The waves are smaller and there's less people before noon. There's rentals there if you want some adventure!

Beautiful, calm and warm beach. Perfect for young kids as there are no high waves or rocks. One of the the best beaches in Zihuatanejo. We loved it. Choose other restaurants besides La Perla, though. Your belongings may not be safe. My phone and money were stolen in a matter of seconds inside the restaurant and it was not other... More

Pretty busy all the time, but Sunday is beach day in Zihautanejo, and everyone is there. The rest of the week in was comfortably active, but not crowded! Of course there are boats to tow you on rafts, and parasail, etc. But the best part is the nice swimming beach.

A beautiful little bay with fishing boats and jet skis. Great beach with warm water. Stay here if you can at least once in your life. You will not be sorry. its easy to get to on Alaska or Delta Airlines. Sit back and have a Corona. It will change your frame of mind.

We Love Playa La Ropa in the off season. A long beautiful strand, perfect for morning or eve walks and jogs, attractive with not so many people during the week. Not isolated, easy to access, plenty of services and restaurants on the the beach. Several nice and reasonable massage services on the beach. Treat yourself to a 4 hander with... More

On the beach close to Embarq/ Club Intrawest. Unbelievable value for such a great massage. 200 pesos at the time for a generous hour. Don't be afraid to try it just because it happens to be on a spectacular beach and not at the numerous resorts. Far Better. Works out to 15 us$ at the time. Go every day for... More
