If you love seafood this is the place to go. Freshest red snapper we have ever had made to order and prepared to your liking. Beach front family owned restaurant on the beach! Isolated beach with less of the tourist crowd.

A simple place to eat the best "pescado a la talla" located in front of a nice beach, but it is not for swimming, or even entering the sea if you are not an experienced swimmer, since it is an open sea beach.

Barra Vieja Beach is for the people that wants tranquility, rustic, good sea food and fun (horse back riding, 4 wheelers, surf) we visited this site after 2 full days in the old Acapulco.

Nice beach for a little surfing or just relaxing - my husband did the first and I of course did the latter. Not a lot people - a plus. Great seafood restaurants all around!

There are many restaurants to eat fresh fish and at the end of the road, just off the shore of "Gody restaurant" there are safe and affordable boats to sail in the "Laguna de Tres Palos"

Nice secluded beach. Sometimes there are nude sunbathers but not real often. Very few vendors. Reasonable prices. Don't stay too late in the day as the transportation is iffy

Fantastic beach with amazing views. Deserted when I visited. Its quite rough though so no good for weak swimmers. There is also the turtles sanctuary located on this beach that is well worth a visit.

Not sure. We didn't do the horses. We did the 4 wheelers.
