Great swim spot behind the Fiesta Americana!!

Playa Condesa is one of the better swim spots along the bay if your directly at the Fiesta Americana you have 3 huge rock formations that protect the shore from any large waves... read more

A little more quiet than the Costera beach and very nice to relax and just be. The water is nice and the views are amazing!

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.

Spent the morning at the beach in Acapulco, Playa Francia happened to be closest to our hotel and was recommended to have less of a rip from the waves. The beach is very cramped with lots of zoning off by hotels and acitivity providers. We rented two chairs and a parasol after some haggling. The sand gradient is very steep... More

This is a great hopping wild area for the spring break crowd to hang and flirt and play in the sun. It is busy, there is always music going and lots to look at and do. I am too old for this area now but have many wild, fond memories here.ZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!

Playa Condesa is one of the better swim spots along the bay if your directly at the Fiesta Americana you have 3 huge rock formations that protect the shore from any large waves. Down further by Paradise you have more wave and undertow issues and swimming there at times can be difficult. There is usually a good crowd especially on... More

A nice long stretch of beach to walk. Perfect if you're already staying long this stretch, but may not be considered a great 'destination' beach. Plenty of opportunities to sit and enjoy a drink or snack. Dozens of beach-vendors toting their items for sale; they are respectful and don't hassle you to buy from them, like other Mexican cities. Jet... More

You can rent a chair under a palapa for 100 pesos ($8). I was staying at the gay only Bed & Breakfast named Casa Condesa, it is only 10 minutes walking distance. I also recommend that B&B , very nice staff, nice swimming pool, long chairs where you can sunbath nude with nice boys/men around you. Very relax place, Casa... More

Playa Condesa is the most popular beach in Acapulco, for good reason, and has been welcoming world travelers and domestic visitors for decades. In the high season there are hundreds of service workers taking care of the massive amount of beachgoers with at least 20 massage therapists, waiters with menus galore providing beach umbrella service and non-stop vendors of every...

I tried to explore as much as i could as far as beach area goes, but if we go on looking on different factors this area its the best around the main coast beaches. Playa Condesa its located on an area where there are a lot of clubs and some 3, 4 and 5 stars on the area. If u... More
