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.

Caleta is my favorite spot in Acapulco as there I get the real Mexican feeling, the people are genuine and the vendors don't bug you.

These beaches can get busy on the weekend but mid week are exteremly pleasant, calm and quiet with lots of seafood restaurants to chose from. The water is very calm and would be ideal for small children.
