We stayed at the hotel right by the rocks, lots of chairs, clean place, prices on beverages were average but we found out that this is where the gay population meet so if you do not get bother by gays modeling around at all times, this place is cool and interesting. All kinds of water sports around.

This stretch of sand is always packed with people, and the beach has some coarse sand, but the views from here are beautiful!!

From Paradise down to the Fiesta Americana many families and friends gather to spend some time at this beach. The rock formation just where the fiesta americana is allows for a pretty calm swim but closer to Paradise restaurante it can be very rough with a strong undertow. Use caution when swimming here.

This beach is not recommended during the holidays (christmas, march break, etc.) because this beach is absolutely disgusting during busy times. People leave garbage everywhere and the ocean is one big dump. Vendors walk buy you selling memorabilia every 30 seconds. During not so busy times it is much nicer. Water-sports such as jet-skiing, banana boating, water skiing, and parasailing... More

Acapulco beaches are great. Must take care if you are not a good swimmer because of high surf nad undertow. Eating places there expensive and not so nice.
