Spent a day on Playa la Ropa and found the experience very relaxing. It was a fun place to "people watch", play in the ocean and just hang out. Mostly older couples here but that didn't bother us.

Love the area. First time here but we're planning on becoming regulars! So many great places to eat. Fantastic beaches and the consistent weather cant be beat! Shopping is great too if you can break away from the beach and eating

While staying at the nearby Pacifica Grand we walked Playa La Ropa daily. From end to end it is probably one mile-- perfect for an enjoyable stroll in the sand, waves and wind. The water very gradually gets deeper so it provided enjoyable, safe swimming. Since it is in Zihuatanejo bay the waves are significantly smaller than at Ixtapa. We... More

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.
