Moderate waves, warm water, clean beaches, 120 pesos to rent an umbrella and a couple of chairs for the day. We had a lot of fun on this beach. Lots of restaurants to choose from. The vendors are respectful. Excellent beach.

Can you ask for a better beach? Gentle waves, ocean temp like bath water, one of the best views in the world, friendly people, lots to do, very reasonable prices. Can’t beat La Ropa.

We hung out at Patty’s on the beach. Good food, good location! The staff is very friendly. The water/bay is great. I believe this to be the nicest area of Z.

We left our resort and walked down past restaurants and resorts on the beautiful beach. We also walked above La Ropa and some really neat small hotels.

Crowded and a lot of "salespeople" but pretty with a lot to do. If you're looking for a way to spend the afternoon it's pretty good.

La Ropa used to so pretty, now so many run down tents of massage places. Very few places to sit in chaise lounge without paying. You used to just order drinks or food and sit all day. Disappointed.

Was suprised at how warm the water was. Nice breeze. Waves small enough for children but large enough for fun.

Snorkeling, swimming and beer on the beach. Easy walk from one end to the other. Palm trees provide a lot of shade.

There are a couple of local shops by the beach where you can buy some groceries. Head to the large supermarket for your big food . Taxis are cheap and easy.
