This area is very nice to get away from all the corud in Acapulco and is famous for the Fish "a la talla" (piece or file). There are several restaurants, the one I like themost because of the installations is DON ALEJO, they accept credit card and they have nice pools and nice beach area.

Barra Vieja is like a step back in time, absolutely beautiful surroundings, ocean with waves slapping hard against the coast line, balmy breezes blowing, and great little cafes located one right after the other with great food. Highly recommend El Zorritas! You can rent quads on the beach or horse back ride or just chill in a hammock. Good time... More

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!

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.

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.
