“So close to Acapulco but so far from civilization”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had a fantastic time in Barra Vieja. A local friend recommended this place, he said it's much quieter that Coyuca, and indeed, we were alone on the beach, ate amazing seafood, their pescado a la talla is truly amazing! We also took a boat ride to see the lagoon, there were quite a few species of birds and we saw a few crocodiles. They also give you time to hop in and swim in the sweet water of the lagoon. I have to say, this is what I expected from my holidays at the Pacific Ocean, peace, natural beauty and wilderness.

“Awesome beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Barra Vieja is one of the greatest beaches in Acapulco. It's known for its "pescado a la talla". You have a variety of places to stay and for us there is a very special one which name is "La Guitarra", in this place you can ask for Maribel and she is gonna attend you very well. One of the greatest sunsets in my life. It's a must.

“Marvelous view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Is where the lake and the sea join and the sun sets, breath taking only problem is that you can only swim at the lake because it's open sea but it's worth wile to go there, food is excellent, the fish is very fresh as in they fish it every day

“Popular beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

I took sunbath in this peaceful and popular beach. Fishing is one great activity you can do here in this beach. We were all fully packed and went on to this beach just to explore it and had a really wonderful time. It is a 40-minute drive from the Acapulco. It is a great beach if you want to be lonely, calm and peaceful. It is safer and much cheaper than the Acapulco. There are many clubs and resorts here in this beach. Waters are good and level of waves is mild and OK. Pescado a la Talla is the local food there, try asking for it, and taste it. It is quite awesome and this beach is worth spending time.
