Extra Pesos in my Pocket (while at the Beach)

Vepao and Casa Gloria have two chairs, separated under each of their beach palapas.

You are stopped if you attempt to enter Playa la Ropa with chairs and/or a beach umbrella.

We are curious as to what will happen to last year's Sotovento Beach Club, if they attempt to open it.

The "Blue Flag Beach" is a very small part of Playa la Ropa, from the mercadito between The Thompson and Villa Mexicana going north to the end of the beach.

Even though it's only a small portion of the beach, they are applying the Blue Flag requirements to the entire beach as well as to Las Gatas. It is simply absurd. To date I have yet to find ONE SINGLE VISITOR who has visited us because of the Blue Flag, so whatever the government has spent on this foolishness simply hasn't paid off, but I have correspondence from dozens of people with the purchasing power we need, some who had property here who sold and moved away, others who have stopped coming because of the certification of Playas El Palmar and La Ropa. The government apparently doesn't care because they don't live from tourism, they just want the feather in their cap, the publicity, the kickbacks and to be able to dish out favors.
