Looking forward to La Ropa Beach

I'm not sure how many hotels are on this beach, but they seem to be built into the hill or otherwise landscaped in a nice way so the scenery is pleasant along the walk. I guess I don't find high-rises on the beach to be interesting to look at.

La Casa Que Canta

La Casa Que Canta

The first hotel at the start of the beach ~ La Casa Que Canta ~ is truly beautiful. We've enjoyed dinner here a couple of times. The ambiance and the service are outstanding. Dan dropped a knife once and within a second a stealth waiter presented him with a new one. We thought we were completely alone... It was like, "Oh, thanks. (Where did you come from?) This is where the pool scene from the movie "When a man loves a woman" was shot. I remembered Meg Ryan in that scene, so of course we had to see the pool. The food was tasty, but for one of our guests, only if you like "Shrimp and Scallop." With all due respect to the chef, there should probably be more than one scallop, or the name should be changed. ;-)

Again, me with the camera. I'll have to remember to give it to Dan once in awhile. :-)

This is a relatively new development. I didn't want to like it at first ... I saw it being built and thought, nooooo!! But it's actually quite pretty.

If I were this couple I'd want this photo! That colorful kite was the original focus.

It was during our New Year's trip one year that we saw so many kids flying kites and playing on the beach. There's a different feeling in the area during Mexican holidays and I found it refreshing.
