“SAFFE AND 50% Cheaper than Acapulco”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I have been coming here for over 30 years, it's safe except for the ocean which has a strong undertow, no lifeguards, many restaurants with fresh seafood. You can sit on the beach and eat, drink, and be merry plus shop the venders come up to you, This is the area where they filmed Tarzan , and Rambo.You can rent a boat and see the beautiful lagoon, ask for Diego. As the sun goes down and out of sight so should you

“Ugly, dirty and tasteless!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The place is just full of drunks that keep eating greasy food. On top of it it is very noisy and the setting is in decay!

“We enjoyed the day”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We see so many great beaches in Mexico we could only say this one was Average. I would recommend people go there as it is a different kind of place than the beaches in Acapulco.

“Must take care”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

You can be hit by the 4 wheel motorcycles there! Nice place to have lunch. Ask for the local dish "Pescado a la Talla". Take care of the undertow.

“The beach at Barra Vieja”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

The water is definately cleaner here than in Acapulco, but the waves are rough, not good for gentle swimming.
