Cicadas!!!!

by Talley Ho @, Playa la Ropa, Wednesday, June 02, 2021, 20:18 (114 days ago)

This is our fourth summer here, and it's so nice to hear the cicadas again!!!! Their fun sounds aren't disturbing, but part of the tropical sounds.

They seem to start, at least here on la Ropa, about the last week of May.

So special!!!

Moved here in November to Ixtapa - love all the birds, cicadas, etc. except maybe chachalacas, do you like living in la ropa? Did you find a reasonably priced place?

LOVE Playa la Ropa, and the chachalacas.

We bought our house here 4 years ago in August and have lived here full time since then. We are very happy!

Just so you know, we call them cigarras here. I love their sound, too. Though we seem to have lost them with the loss of the trees and earth in what used to be a garden in front of our home.
