Clean, friendly and the food is really good too.

There is a nice restaurant or choose to sit right down on the beach, it's all very clean, great staff and good food. It is worth the drive to visit.

Memo will catch and his wife will cook the best fresh fish! Great beach location and hopefully Acapulco will come back as a tourist destination!

Barra Vieja Beach is a gem. Don't miss Bambuddha for the most amazing, spiritual, beautiful place in Mexico!

Clean beaches, friendly people, quiet place and very low tide! Perfect for families, to swim for hours. It is a secure place, at least from me, danger free and I enjoyed it.
