Boca Chica

Punta Caletilla, Acapulco, Guerrero, 39390, Mexico

A recent retooling, revamping, and reopening has turned one of Acapulco’s original hotels into one of the area’s coolest lodgings. It was originally built in the '50s (indeed, scenes from the Elvis movie Fun in Acapulco were shot here), and the remodel has a retro feel. An old refrigerator in the lobby is filled with Yoli sodas (a regional soda from the state of Guerrero), and there's vintage furniture and decorations throughout. The small rooms have a mint-green-and-white color scheme and are simply furnished with comfortable beds, retro sinks and showers, flat-screen TVs, and ceiling fans. A beachy area within the hotel is a sort of natural swimming pool; the adjacent beach is probably Acapulco's most popular, so you get a look at how the locals enjoy the sun and sand.


  • very cool vibe
  • captures the Acapulco of yore like few places can
  • bargain rates available


  • adjacent beach is often crowded and can be littered
  • the retro look is not to everybody's taste
