I don't know why so many people rave about this beach as a beach, as it tends to be really crowded on the weekends and there are virtually no waves if you like to do any body surfing. There are a lot of restaurants and bars, and tons of vendors hawking every imaginable tourist item. Food and drinks are pretty... More

If you like loud music, getting roaring drunk, thong bikinis, high-rise,-all inclusive hotels, avoiding contact with locals, speaking only English, wet T-shirt contests or surfing, don't come here. You would hate it. The people who return here year after year are boring. We like fresh fish, practicing our Spanish, reading, beach walks, watching local kids play soccer on the beach,... More

Getting to this beach is a little more challenging than Playa Madera (closest to most hotels) or Los Gatos (requires a boat), but it is an easy taxi ride or walk. Great little tiendas provide tasty food as well for your day at the beach.

This is a picturesque beach on a pristine bay. It's a smallish beach maybe about a mile long. There are lots of inexpensive restaurants where you can get a beach chair and stay for the day and eat and drink. There are not really any "luxury" beach experience options unless you stay at the upscale Viceroy hotel. There are many... More

A great place to relax. One can find a suitable rental with the basics (ie: wifi, A/C) Shuttle service to Zihua $ 10 pesos or take taxi from commercial mercado to la Ropa for $ 50 pesos. All good. Venture & explore the many venues. FYI: After sunset - be a smart traveller & reduce any risks to ones safety.... More

We enjoyed Playa la Ropa. It is considered the most desired beach and it is the largest in the bay. We found it to be a nice beach, while others were great as well and located closer to town.

I walk to this beach in morning. It was a difficult climb up the streets. It seems to be in the quiet zone beach.
