“Nice walking crescent beach”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Staying at Club Intrawest, we were able to have a nice walk everyday on the mostly flat, soft sand beach. Good restaurants with reasonable prices for anytime of the day. At the south end locals gather at the south end of the beach; good place to be in October for a margarita sunset. Some snorkeling on the north end of the beach, but not worth hauling your gear. Decent diving, good fishing, if you want to hire a boat. Good massages for $200 Pesos. Some vendors, but the whole area is pretty much hassle-free.

“Soft sand mellow surf”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Very soft sand, trash is limited so it is a great walking beach. There are restaurants and activities right there.

“We Stayed at Catalina Beach Resort on La Ropa”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Playa La Ropa is one of the Best Beaches I’ve ever visited and I’ve Visited Too Many To Count. Water was wonderful, clear, and buoyant with high salt content and around 83 degrees water temp. No stingrays, No underwater obstructions, No Problems at All. Bottom was smooth sand with beautiful reflections of the sun dancing upon the bottom. I was mesmerized by the reflections on the bottom and floated way too long while snorkeling, burned my back. Wear a rash guard. Service at the Catalina Beach Resort Palapalas was perfect. Overall this is a must visit beach but the best part of it is the buoyed swim area in front of Catalina Resort, keeps the jet skis and taxis from invading the swimming area. FIVE STARS!
