The road to nowhere

Personally I like the road to nowhere. There a couple of nice botique condo projects going in and a young man and his father have built a very nice tennis club. Also, this road has provided an alternate exit from LaRopa in case of an emergency. The only thing that I wish would happen is that large trucks for construction projects would start using it gain access to LaRopa. The small winding road full of pedestrians and bikes being shared with a large truck is very unnerving at times.

On top of all of that, the road provides a great workout with the reward of a nice view from the top. Case in point, the bike event.

Condo projects. Buildings that destroy our natural beauty and that bring in very little income for our community compared to hotels, especially when owned by people who don't live here. Just an observation after over 50 years living in tourist resorts where the condo commandos tend to ruin one community after another, one coastline after another. No offense to my condo owning friends.

That road also serves as an alternative way for thieves to enter and leave La Ropa by vehicle. With the one road there was only the one exit that was easier to put up a roadblock should anything happen (not that such a strategy was ever implemented), but two exits are even better for thieves, including the ones trying to privatize Playa Manzanillo. I just don't see that it benefitted anyone other than the builder: the mayor, as well as people looking to build projects on what should've been declared an Área Natural Protegida.

I liked the trails that existed before the road. I used to be able to walk from La Ropa to Playa Manzanillo in about 20 minutes on the trails. And that was back when I still smoked tobacco. ;-)
