This is a nice many kilometers long Beach, as you can see in photos. It is quite far from Acapulco (about 45mins drive depending on traffic). It has little food stalls and shacks in high season where you can get a bite.

Everything is a catch of the day. I love the taste the rural ambiance and the best food. They mostly don't accept credit card but bringing dollar is acceptable

Great food, not so many sellers and beatiful beach. Ask for pescado a la talla and quedadillas. Avoid sitting next to a track where horses and four wheel motorcycle cross, because they blow over a lot of sand

Not sure. We didn't do the horses. We did the 4 wheelers.
