La Ropa Beach and acceptable practices

Get serious Rob. Your anti American rhetoric causes the loss of more tourists. I personally do not know of one person who used to come to Zihua that no longer because of the dog rules. However I do know of several who no longer come because of your comments in addition to some who still come but avoid your wife's shop. In thirty some years of coming there I can count on one hand the number of times people brought dogs. What dumb statement.

What an extremely rude comment. Sounds like alcohol talking.

I can't answer to your ignorance of the facts. When Playa El Palmar was "certificada" and pets banned, I received dozens of mails and comments here on my forum from people who were not coming back to Ixtapa, including numerous property owners who sold at a loss and left, disgusted with the stupid policy. When the policy was enacted on Playa La Ropa I saw a similar occurrence. Unlike you, besides foreigners from the USA and Canada, I'm also interested in our Mexican visitors. To date, absolutely no one has been able to show evidence that we have received ONE SINGLE ADDITIONAL TOURIST for having any of our beaches "certificadas", but I can document dozens of people I'm aware of who left never to return. On social media I've also communicated with dozens of Mexicans, middle class families who used to drive here with their pets, who no longer return. Altogether they add up to hundreds of tourists lost. Perhaps when we had a booming tourist industry folks wouldn't have noticed the difference, BUT WE HAVEN'T HAD A BOOMING TOURIST INDUSTRY FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS.

The conservative Retrumplican racist a-holes who allegedly no longer come because of my "anti-American comments" (feel free to point out any instance of this because I know you can't) aren't missed. Most locals aren't prostitutes who just want their money. But feel free to document the a-holes I've allegedly chased away and present it to the local authorities if you believe I'm harming tourism. I believe you and they are full of crap, and that we are better without any of the racist a-holes I've allegedly run off, and I'm confident that my efforts attract plenty more decent people to take their place.
