This beach is most tradicional in the city; clean and calm waters are excellent for kids and older people; my only recommendation is not to go in weekends because is very crowded. But certainly is must visit if it's your first time in acapulco, from there you can take a boat to La Roqueta Island and have snorkel over there.

I took the bus to Playas Caleta Y Caletilla which is at the end of the bus line. It is a cute little beach area with many restaurants serving food and drinks. You can sit at the beach and enjoy a meal or a drink. A very nice relaxing experience. You can play in the warm water, take a boat tour, or walk among the several souvenir type shops.

We love watching the people and having lunch there on one of the two little beaches. I have been there when it was so crowded you could hardly walk and other times when we are almost alone. The little restaurant there has good food and inside as well as beach dining. Spend the day. You won't be sorry.

Caleta and Caletilla are right next to one another and are in the traditional part of Acapulco. You won't see many Americans (well, you probably won't see many Americans in general in Aca these days..) or Canadians here but don't let that keep you away. This is a calm beach in a really interesting part of the city. While you're over here you can eat at some really great restaurants and/or take a boat to Isla Roqueta (for 100 pesos) as well. I would head over in the morning to get good seats as these beaches tend to get crowded especially on weekends.

If you want to be in an area of Acapulco notable for old construction, dirt cheap prices , a lot of atmosphere, short hop into downtown to the Zocolo where some of the best food is and all kinds of services, stay in Caleta. I have to travel to Acapulco frequently from Zihuatanejo, and for 19 years have stayed at the Hotel Santa Catalina; rooms start at 25 dollars a night. Huge, underpopulated except for weekends when tour buses show up, it is owned by a father and son both Notaries, whose offices are at the entrance. The son is also a congressman. As you can imagine, security is perfect.

Dirty and smelly. One of the worst beaches I have ever visited. In general Acapulco is awful, it is dangerous, dirty and ugly. Avoid it at all cost

We spent a wonderful afternoon at Playa Caleta, a small beach in an older part of Acapulco. It felt very safe and was bustling with activity, full of local families with young kids digging in the sand and splashing around in the calm water. We sat down at a shaded table in a restaurant on the sand, where we had a delicious inexpensive lunch with plenty of cold beer -- but the real highlight for us was people-watching. Numerous vendors were walking along the beach selling everything from inflatable water toys to homemade candy. One was out in the water, pushing around a small boat loaded with seashells for sale. Jet skis and various boat rides were available -- the banana tow boat seemed especially popular. And to complete the experience, a Mariachi band was strolling from restaurant to restaurant. What a great day!
