Careful at La Ropa

That is what I was thinking, too. The locals will not stand for this happening in their beautiful town.
I agree that the police in Zihuatanejo are a joke. I have always felt the military has done a better job at maintaining safety.

Locals won't do anything. Lodging operators prefer to suppress such news. Everyone looks to the federal government who can't possibly know what's going on here. It's a local problem that requires local solutions.

Nothing ruins tourism quicker than crime. A damn shame our current mayor hasn't taken these past 5 years of his administration to IMPROVE the municipal police force and our local public security instead of to pour his own cement at every opportunity. Suppressing information as he does only makes matters worse.

The problem with the military is they aren't from here and don't know the colonias or local affairs. And they, like the Guardia Nacional, keep getting called away to take care of problems elsewhere, so unfortunately we still can't rely on them.

The only thing the new road to La Ropa has done, besides making the mayor wealthier, is to make it easier for thieves to get in and out of the area.

La Ropa used to have a police module upon which an exorbitant sum of public money was spent, but the police never used it. There are no cameras or permanent security features in the area even though it has become a hub of expensive lodgings and wealthy residents and visitors. Even locating the Sector Naval's military barracks beside the Partenón has had zero effect on the area's security. Still waiting for a response from the municipal government, but so far I'm only hearing increasing concerns by residents and visitors. #PobrePueblo #MerecemosMejor
