Barra Vieja is one of the greatest beaches in Acapulco. It's known for its "pescado a la talla". You have a variety of places to stay and for us there is a very special one which name is "La Guitarra", in this place you can ask for Maribel and she is gonna attend you very well. One of the greatest... More

Is where the lake and the sea join and the sun sets, breath taking only problem is that you can only swim at the lake because it's open sea but it's worth wile to go there, food is excellent, the fish is very fresh as in they fish it every day

I took sunbath in this peaceful and popular beach. Fishing is one great activity you can do here in this beach. We were all fully packed and went on to this beach just to explore it and had a really wonderful time. It is a 40-minute drive from the Acapulco. It is a great beach if you want to be... More

I enjoyed my afternoon at Barra Vieja Beach. I ate at the popular Alejos restaurant, the food is amazing and they make a better Coco Loco than Las Brisas La Concha Beach Club (yes, this is true!!) There is horseback riding and if you talk to the security guys he will keep the hagglers away so can enjoy seaside dining... More

Prices are triple as last time, food was Ok and service was awful. Everyboldy goes to Beto Godoys but now they live only for their reputation. Not worth the effort

What I liked the most was having lunch-supper at around 5 pm. I dont remember the name of the restaurant, typically mexican with palapa and plastic chair. The quality of food is regular. That was compensated with the wonderfull pictures I took at sunset. Traffic on the way back to Acapulco(Ave de las Naciones) was a nightmare
