    Residents of Playa Blanca will no longer need to make the long trip to Playa Honda to shop at Congelados Ropers, the long-established food supermarket. There is a now a brand new store at the main Shopping Centre at Las Coloradas, near Papagayo and Marina Rubicon.

    The new "Ropers"store seems to sell just about everything that will be familiar to those who have shopped at Playa Honda: frozen and fresh meat, fish, delicatessen cooked meats and cheeses, greengrocery, plus a good selection of quality wines.
