Condesa is where most locals go instead of the beaches directly attached to the hotels. It is a little more quiet but really pretty and the water is really warm too! Nice beach for the family!

It has a good climate, a variety of objects, a wide variety of places to relax and things are cheap. exeden not on the prices of the products they sell there on the spot. Finally I should mention that there are several cheap to stay a couple of days with a wonderful view places.

The beach is so nice here! There are quiet stretches to one side, and in the area where there are hotels, there are services which offer jets rental, diving, etc. A perfect beach! (sometimes you have to look out for rogue waves from the tide, but that's anywhere!)

I love that this is a little more out of the way and more quiet than the "Main" beach. Water is beautiful!

Probably not the best beach of Acapulco, personally I prefer Punta Diamante side which is less crowded and with cleaner beaches and sea.

Playa Condesa is a more subcluded beach not very crowded but beautiful to visit. You can sit there hear the waves and enjoy some "you" time. A very beautiful beach to relax and enjoy the scenery.

It's sad that some people are scared to go to Acapulco. Condesa beach is cleaner than ever, the customer service is the best. Try an afternoon under a palapa at Beto, you'll return every year. Not only the place is paradise on earth but the waiters are the funniest and the friendliest in the city. PROOF is most of their... More

Wether you enjoy hanging out with the locals or being a tourist the Condessa is a great area. Lots of things to do from markets to food. Very walkable. People are friendly and buckets of local beers are very cheap.
