We went there on a Saturday not knowing that locals also enjoy a day at the beach! Was full in a matter of minutes. We had to pay for chairs and a palapa. Was an interesting experience. Never went back on the weekend.

We went to Playa Revolcdero for the day. It is so different from the other side of Acapulco( Las Brisas). The waves are amazing and as far you can see it is just this amazing strip of beach and waves. Lovely.

If you want a long stroll on the beach this is a great starting point. I think you can walk at least 10 k without interruption along here. Maybe more. I will wear my meter next time to let you know.

The sand and beach is great, the undertow quite dangerous, you must take care. No place to park your car. Beach vendors again as in all Acapulco trying to sell you something all the time.

Liked the long wide beach, no one on it during the week, a few people during the weekend. Can't wait to go back!

Good for surfing, there is some current that may get strong. Very good food. There are a few ways of getting there the main one is from the main road from the airport to Puerto Marquez and turn left on the burguer king.
