The worst part about this beach is the fact that you are constantly accosted for massages, parasailing, boat excursions, etc. EVERY time you walk the beach, the exact same people approach you trying to sell you services. This is a narrow beach... no shells... lots...More

Eat breakfast at a beach side restaurant & you have the use of lounge chairs for the day. Take a walk down the beach & compare prices for parasailing - magnificent view & not scary at all.

Compare to Ixtapa, this beach is quiet and the waves are smoother (still strong). Remember that it is a public beach and on holidays can be crowded. It is also the Pacific ocean=not that warm, but you get used to.

Is there a beach break at la ropa? My girlfriend wants to learn to surf and it looks like it gets pretty big at some of the nearby point breaks. Any suggestions for slow rolling waves nearby is appreciated, thx!
