What is that Structure on La Ropa Road?

On my last visit, I walked by a building on the bay side of the road, across from Casa Que Ve Al Mar. It is a small abandonded stone building filled with trash. It looks to be too small to have been a home. Curious if anyone knows what it used to be?

Sounds like you're referring to the water pumping station that supplies La Ropa (and now Las Gatas) with "potable" water. Filled with trash? Bummer.

Several years ago they had some workers ,for about a month, on the inside of the building putting in a big,new tiled shower and couple of tiled bathrooms.They then locked it up.For years they have dumped trash next to it and sorted out things of value, eventually removing the left over.I guess I have no clue.

Just a guess--- going by the description given by jbmass, could it have been intended as a staff or employee facility. I know of a number of hotels in the Caribbean and Mexico who provide these facilities as many staff do not have running water at home.
