Playa Manzanillo?

I have provide the best way I know how to get there on foot after getting off the bus at the new airport road in La Ropa. The total distance is 4.4 kilometers in and 4.4 out measured on google maps. It takes me 37 minutes to walk to the top and 25 down to beach. Allowing 2 hours accounts for lots what ifs, like being old. if you know a better way please share it, all you have accomplished so far is to tell me you can do it faster, that I am taking the wrong way and making a joke about city slickers. While all of none of those things may be funny or true, none of them get you to the beach.

Somewhere in the Archives of the old Message Board there may be a detailed account of how to walk there. I don't know. But the unmarked footpath I take starts at the far end of the huerta near the turnoff to Rossy's by Villa Los Arcos, goes up real quick, then east a bit before it crosses the hilltop near an old watermelon patch, and it comes out right on our property on Playa La Pedregosa, the rocky beach just west of Manzanillo, where there used to be a small arroyo with running water in the rainy season, probably ruined by the road and building construction going on. I can't tell you exactly where the path is and most of it can't be seen on any Google Map, but I or really any long-time resident can show it to you, however it's better and safer to go with someone who knows the area. Unsavory characters sometimes roam the same back roads and paths. This is NOT a walk in the park and no one is coming to rescue you if you get hurt. So I advise folks to take a boat there.
