We visited this beach because the waves were not as dangerous as the other beaches. It was perfect for my 8 yr old and 13th year old to swimm at without too much worry. It is a crowded beach with locals. However its perfect for kids because of the low waves not much of the high waves. You will be... More

Well, its not where the cosmopolitan people come to take a sun bath, its where the local comes to have a day off, but its not too clean and over crowded.

This is a great spot for families, with an amazing area to swim in. There are a few little restaurants nearby and tables and chairs on the beach.

This place is full of average poor people who do not take care of the beaches , they throw trash, come in bundles and do not respect privacy, not recommended until more police presence.

A wonderful beach for swimming! Therefore, Caleta was more crowded than other areas of Acapulco Bay. However, it was worth the day spent there. People watching was fun, along with the various vendors at the mnarketplace. Some real deals and the vendors expected you to bicker! Interesting!

This was one of the beaches that made Acapulco famous when there was practically nothing. It must have been a paradise but now, it's too popular and I'd say dirty. It's ok if you want to see what locals and tourists from other states do to have fun. The water is very calm and shallow, that's why everybody is in... More

It's a public access to a beach so of course it would be crowded, that does not mean it has to be a bad experience. Of your budget is not quite to go to Punta Diamante ths place gives you family entertainment at low rates. The food as well, although I would not eat the shrimps or even the bagged... More

As Acapulco has more than 10 named beaches I would suggest you try to see them all .However i would recommend Caleta for families and adults alike

We love watching the people and having lunch there on one of the two little beaches. I have been there when it was so crowded you could hardly walk and other times when we are almost alone. The little restaurant there has good food and inside as well as beach dining. Spend the day. You won't be sorry.

While most of the old town has slid a bit from years of past neglect the beaches of Caleta especially still remain very popular with the locals and in thwe winter month those snowbirds from the U.S and Canada. I found the water to be extremely clean this past February and you can see many fish swimming around and we... More
