About the neighbourhood
Terraced hillside condominium, overlooking Playa La Ropa and the beautiful Bay of Zihuatanejo, at the foothills of the Sierra Madres. Twenty-five minutes from the airport. Ten minute drive to town. Less than a ten minute walk down to the beach.

Playa La Ropa has charming restaurants and beach clubs, perfect for a day of sunbathing or water sports, including sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, parasailing, snorkeling, etc. (We provide beach towels.) Just around the bend is the charming Playa Las Gatas, a delightful option for a day at the beach and snorkeling, with an underwater wall that legend claims was built by an ancient Indian king to protect the waters for his daughters.
Car not needed
