Acapulco Sights

Barra Vieja

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

A pleasant drive 27 km (17 mi) east of Acapulco, between Laguna de Tres Palos and the Pacific, brings you to this long stretch of uncrowded beach. Most people make the trip for the solitude and to feast on pescado à la talla (red snapper marinated in spices and grilled over hot coals), available at all the seaside outdoor restaurants. The locals flock here on weekends.
