“Quiet beach to do nothing”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Barra Vieja is a nice place for doing nothing. If you feel tired of certain excess, and want to recover energy, here is the place. Just resting, eating and drinking. Taking a bath of sun for tanning your skin.

Reviewed January 5, 2012

Barra Vieja is a 1.25 hour trip from Acapulco Bay, and it is worth it.

“Excellent place to eat Red Snapper”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Took one of the classic VW bug taxi's down here. As noted by others, if you get to the lagoon you have passed it. There are large sail like signs pointing out the different restaurants. We went to the Con Su Amiga Tomasita, recommended by our driver. We ordered barbecued whole red snapper. (you personally pick out your fish, they weight it, and charge accordingly). This was the best red snapper we had thus far, even better than those served at an unnamed fancy restaurant and Puerto Marquez. Note restrooms are @ rural standards.
The beach is endless with Palm trees end to end.

Best to use a rent car or have the taxi wait for you. I did not see many cabs around.
