Playa La Ropa or Playa La Madera

by mexicruiser Online Now Aug 2, 2005 at 9:12 PM

My husband and I are planning to spend a week in Zihuatanejo next Feb/Mar, and are trying to decide whether we should stay in La Ropa or La Madera. We are looking for a quiet peaceful area with nice sandy white beaches, palm trees, a few palapa bars/restaurants, and not too many people. Our budget will allow us between50-$100 per night for a beachfront bungalow/condo/apartment with an ocean view.

We were concerned that La Ropa might be too far to walk back to from the downtown area at night, or even during the day. Do busses run between the two beaches at night, are taxis affordable?

We had checked out Bungalows Pacificos website, and it seemed fairly nice and within the budget (only just!). Has anyone stayed there? Any reviews or info on the place? Any help and advice on accommodations,etc would be greatly appreciated as this will be our first visit to this part of Mexico, and we would like it to be a fun and positive visit!

Please email me with any info, advice, etc at

Thanks in advance.

    Nor La Ropa or La Madera have white sand.

    Taxis are affordable.
