Extra Pesos in my Pocket (while at the Beach)

And what would be the reasoning for not being allowed to bring your own chair?

No problem on any other beach in Zihuatanejo. Take your chair or your petate. Take your umbrella. Take your non-styrofoam cooler (no glass bottles or jars). I get the impression whoever set the rules for La Ropa doesn't really know what they're doing and they're simply SIMULATING what they believe is their duty.Beginning with the stupid "certificación Blue Flag", a designation that may mean something to European travel agents but doesn't mean squat here in America. One would think we would know how to keep our beaches clean without having guidelines made up by people who aren't from here and who don't live here, but for a politician it looks good on their curriculum vitae and it gives them access to resources with which to pay political favors.

Apparently at La Ropa they only want you walking on the beach but sitting in one of the restaurants. Even hotels aren't allowed to put their own chairs out for their own guests. No such problem in Ixtapa or at any other beach in the region.
