Great spot, but not the place to go if you want to swim in the ocean

It is a nice stop when in Acapulco. You will find great local food, very cheap. However, the beach is not good for swimming, specially with childrens.

it is a long way to get there, close from Airport, the restaurants are very common, a Little wild, not very clean, the only thing that it is worthy is the fish, they prepare it very well, you can take your wine or drinks and pay a fee to drink them with the food

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!
