If you are looking for a piece of paradise in acapulco BARRA VIEJA is the place. We stop at PECOS DEL MAR km 29 is about half an hour from LA ISLA in Acapulco Diamante and the supermarket CHEDRAUI, take a table with hammocs in front of the sea and ask for PESCADO A LA TALLA probably one of the best red snapper you ever eat, is done in the grill usually comes with tortillas beans and rice. The simplicity of the place is what make Barra Vieja great. Dont expect to find Big fancy Hotel .... here is only palm shadows,hammoc,horses or moto bikes for rent where you can go to meet the river joinning the sea about 15 minutes by motor bike,in the afternoon thiey realease baby turtels to the sea in the next beach call PLAYA TORTUGUERO enjoy ......

We stopped here on a private tour to release baby turtles! It was a beautiful, quiet beach! Seemed like it went on for miles. It would be a great place to spend the day, have lunch or even a drink or 2! I highly recommend releasing the baby turtles. It doesn't sound like much but both me and the bf were pretty excited to do so and had fun doing it. we got to both release 3 turtles each. It sounds like it was a slow day. Normally guests only gets to release 1-2 turtles. We were there for about 45 mins and would have stayed all day if we could have. This will differently be a spot to hang out next time we are in Acapulco (with more time).

Great food, not so many sellers and beatiful beach. Ask for pescado a la talla and quedadillas. Avoid sitting next to a track where horses and four wheel motorcycle cross, because they blow over a lot of sand

I love this beach because is almost alone and you can enjoy the sea without many people, the waves are really relaxing, the sand is very soft and the restaurants nearby have very good food. You can go to this place taking a bus from acapulco to punta diamante and then other to barra vieja.

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.
