Almost completely Mexican families, very low key, with 50 or more restaurants all wanting to give you a place on the beach to drink their cold beer, and eat their fish.

One year we went to this beach and were very sorry of our decision. The restaurant Ok Ok was good but surroundings very busy with locals. Even had a guy with an aligator and a snake and I am scared shitless of snakes... Was stressed for the whole couple of hours there. Too many boats and seadoos, could hardly swim... More

We spent almost the 1 whole day here. The water is warm and clean. The sand is golden. The view is amazing. This is like a natural pool, very little waves. The small restaurants offer great inexpensive food, drinks, beer and shelter right at the water's edge. What else could you ask for. Take cash to get great stuff from... More

This place is near Acapulco Costera, lest than 30 min away. Here you can find easy waters (no waves), grate for swimming, cayaking, skying, or to rent a wave runner, in summary a good place for water sports. There are plenty of restaurants on the beach, serving the catch of the day, really fresh.

My fiancée is from Mexico and we have been to places in Mexico. We both like less developed areas, especially small towns, because we enjoy how nice the people are, and we enjoy the authenticity. Much of Mexico is this way and we don’t like the pretense and Americanization of many tourist spots (not just in Mexico). Cabo is an... More

This beach is getting better although there is a lot of cleaning that still needs to be done. The small palapa restaurants are neglecting the beach.

Puerto Marques is one of the nicest beaches I've ever been to - anywhere. The narrow mouth of the bay keeps the waves down, so it's safe and fun even for the littlest kids to swim. The main road is a rutted mess with shops on one side selling bikinis, floaty toys, and coconuts; restaurants on the other side trying... More

We go to Puerto Marques every year. People so friendly and honest. Feel very safe. Love to stop for beer, sangria, and sopes. Some of the restaurants were wiped out in the hurricanes in Sept, but many are still there and in good shape.
