Bocana Beach is a traditional Palapa restaurant. A fun place to spend the day on the beach where the Beer is "Always free tomorrow". Kick back with a bucket of ice cold beer. The food is great we especially enjoy the ribs. The owners and staff are friendly and attentive,restrooms, full bar. The American Legion meets here on Thursday mornings.

Bocana is a great place for Pozole Thursday. Every thursday. Been there a few times and the pozole meal is a full meal for about 50 pesos. Beer is very cheap. I think it was 6 for 85 pesos, or 2 for 30.
Excellent live dancing show, although it is the same each week. Small dance floor that is kept pretty full after the show. It's normal for guests to take the mike and sing a song also. In fact I've found this is quite common in Acapulco bars on pozole thursdays. And I'm amazed at how good the voices are.
Efrain is the energetic great waiter we always see there.

If you are value minded and looking for a relaxing place to knock back a few cold ones along with some pretty tasty food right on the beach, this is your place. Located near the big Mexican flag on the beach side of the Costera, it is a great spot to spend a lazy afternoon with 2x1 drinks and a menu full of appetizers, Mexican dishes as well as chicken and seafood.

I think the best thing about Bocana Beach is that it is very simple and there is nothing fancy/special about it other then it just has a very warm and inviting feeling. To get there when heading towards Caleta/Old Acapulco just locate the large Mexican flag on the Costera you cannot miss it. Also it is just past the hotel Avalon as well with a large blue sign in front.

The food is good and the drinks are 2-4-1 all day and it is one of those places that don't break the wallet for tourist or snowbirds alike. The swimming in this part of the bay is without question (other then Caleta) the calmest around. Our TA group has spent many afternoons here over the years so it has to be doing something right.

The place even midweek is always with a good crowd so service at times is a bit slow but no one seems to mind on a beach toes in the sand :) Anyway Bocana Beach is really a great place to spend an afternoon in Acapulco. I can't wait till 2012 !!!

We spent an afternoon with friends at Bocana Beach which is located on the Costera opposite Papagayo park & the huge mexican flag. This beachfront restaurant/bar is unbelievably inexpensive I could hardly fathom our bill at the end of the afternoon coming to a mere 35 USD for 4 meals of Chicken tacos & a very picante like enchilada that was extremely good.

We also had a few buckets of Pacifico during the course of the day as well. This is one of those 2 for 1 specials & is great for anyone on a budget. I would highly recommend a visit to this beachfront location. The water here is very calm & clean for a nice relaxing swim. This was our first visit to Bocana but it will not be our last.
