Puerto Marques is one of the nicest beaches I've ever been to - anywhere. The narrow mouth of the bay keeps the waves down, so it's safe and fun even for the littlest kids to swim. The main road is a rutted mess with shops on one side selling bikinis, floaty toys, and coconuts; restaurants on the other side trying to lure you in to sit under their beach palapas; and buses double parked in the middle. I like to take this road all the way to the end to Playa Majahua, where local families hang out. Sundays are quite crowded, other days more relaxed. You can rent a table under an umbrella or in one of the beach restaurants for a pittance, or you can bring your own umbrella. (With the intense Acapulco sun, you're going to want a bit of shade.) Food and beverages are reasonably priced, or you can bring your own. There's a roped off swim area that the boats mostly respect. Be careful if you wander outside of this area, but there is nice snorkeling along the rocks on either side.

my 2 week vacation to acapulco is never finished until we all go to Puerto Marques! The beer is cheap the food is good and the beach is wonderful! If you want to sit under an umbrelled table or sit in the sun and shop for anything and everything that is Puerto marques! This is the place for cheap souvenirs and getting to see the locals. i have been there every year for the past 18 years and have never had an issue, however when the cab driver (usually Benjamin) drops you off it doesn't look like much until you walk thru the restaurant onto the beach. You can make your deal with the restaurant for tables and chairs and your beers. Great experience love it!!! My husband loves it no walking to shop. The locals love to negociate with you but if you are not interested you just tell them no!

We go to Puerto Marques every year. People so friendly and honest. Feel very safe. Love to stop for beer, sangria, and sopes. Some of the restaurants were wiped out in the hurricanes in Sept, but many are still there and in good shape.

Went here to snorkel and lay on beach for the afternoon. Once again Senor Baldo!!! Hooked us up with hugo and his boat! This guy is a fish! He took us out to the mouth of the bay to snorkel and it was great! Once again not the crystal clear water of cancun but very nice just the same!!!
