Warm water , long beach, no- high rises on the beach, only modest or boutique hotels, sea turtles, and, yes, a couple of crocodiles. Paradise. There is a bus that connects La Ropa with downtown for about 3 pesos, or, if you don't mind climbing one ambitious hill, you can take the malceon all the way into down in about 20 minutes. There are lots of new rental condos at the far end of the beach- very nice, but not right on the beach

Can't say enough good things about this town and the beautiful beach area of Playa La Ropa. We felt that we found paradise. A very happy and authentic and very safe town, beatiful beaches, fantastic condos and at prices that made us very content. Can't wait to go back and spend a couple weeks next time. Surely, one of Mexico's best kept secrets.

I see the previous posts are all from awhile ago. I live on Playa La Ropa. The beach is one of the cleanest. The colony of La Ropa is planning to apply to have La Ropa certified as a "clean beach". Just this last week the colony was successful at placing many trash cans along the beach. A "keep the beach clean" education program is also underway. Restaurants clean their area every morning and litterally rake the sand. The water is clear- in 20 feet of water you can see your feet below you.

Just thought I would post something current.

We have stayed in Ixtapa many times but last Feb we decided to stay in Zihua instead since we spend so much time there anyway. The beach was extremely clean, the only trash was at the restaurants. The beaches in Ixtapa are clean too, but not so much better that you should avoid La Ropa and stay in Ixtapa. Perhaps it's a difference from the high season to the low season; maybe there is more attention paid to the beach during the high season. I don't know, I'm just surprised by the dirty beach comments.

We had huge expectations about this beach, knowing that La Casa Que Canta, Club Intrawest and The Tides have access to this beach, and there is the famous La Perla Restaurant. But we found a very dirty beach, full of garbage. Unless you want to stay at one of the 3 resorts I mentioned earlier or you want to have lunch at La Perla, it isn't a good idea to go to this beach, you better go to the beaches on Ixtapa Bay Hotel Area, which are pretty clean.
