BEACHES

-Caleta and Caletilla: They are two of the most traditional beaches in Acapulco. Both present fairly calm waters due to the fact that Roqueta Island, which is situated exactly in front of them, intercepts the Pacific current. They are ideal if you are looking for a serene and welcoming sea; besides, they are the perfect scenarios for the practice of scuba diving.
Magic Marine World, which is the City's aquarium, is located on Caleta Beach, and it exhibits a great variety of exotic fish, crocodiles and seals, amongst other species. It has an oceanographic museum, an aviary, video room, swimming pool with slides, and a beach club. The ships bound for Roqueta Island weigh anchor from here.

-Roqueta: It is well attended by divers due to the transparency and shallowness of its waters. It is located on one of the extremes of the homonymous Island, which is in front of Caleta and Caletilla Beaches. Arriving in here is an experience on itself for you cleave the Pacific on boats with glass bottoms, so you may appreciate the sea fauna. The submarine Chapel in honour of the Virgin of Guadalupe is a detail that calls the attention of tourists.

-Tamarindo, Hornos and Hornitos: Idyllic beaches with straight palm trees, soft sands and a relatively calm sea that allows endless bathes and the practice of aquatic sports. But that is not all, with the break of the day you can see numerous fishermen preparing their boats before adventuring on the Pacific.
They are located between the Las Hamacas and Paraíso Hotels.

    Useful Information Acapulco
    -Condesa: It is one of the most popular in Acapulco. There is fun on the sea of strong surf, but also at the noisy shopping malls, and at the restaurants offering exquisite potages. There is always something to do in here: maybe jet-ski, aquatic ski, windsurf, sail, snorkel, or bungee jump from 50 metres high; maybe just enjoy the endless festive ambience that takes over the atmosphere at the beach, located on the Golden Zone of Miguel Alemán Coastal Avenue, Acapulco's tourist core.

    -Icacos: It is the most extensive beach in Acapulco. It begins at the Presidente Hotel, where the waves are energetic and impetuous, and ends at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, a place where the sea is on an opposite mood, totally mild and slept. Due to its characteristics it is ideal for the practice of aquatic sports taking place on the sea surface.
    The Aquatic Park or International Centre of Infantile Coexistence (CICI in Spanish) is in Icacos, and offers shows with dolphins and seals; besides, it has slides, swimming pools and a mini aquarium, amongst other attractions.

    -Pichilingue: It is the beach of the famous. Many celebrities of the international jet set have lavish villas in this exclusive beach resort, where they come to enjoy the relaxing waters of the Pacific.
    If you have a paparazzi spirit, feel encouraged coming aboard the yachts sailing nearby Pichilingue. With a little luck you may see some famous guy resting on the sand or facing the waves; if not, you will have to cheer up admiring the ocean view only.

    -Puerto Márquez: Yesterday it was a refuge of pirates; today it is the beach of choice for the locals, who come all the way down here to tan under the lulling sunrays, enjoy appetising dishes based on seafood, and to cheer their day with refreshing drinks.
    This beach of gentle waves and profuse vegetation is located on the Bay of Puerto Márquez, and it is excellent for the practice of scuba diving, snorkelling, and aquatic skiing.

    -Revolcadero: Its name (Roller) evidences the belligerence the Pacific poses on this part of Acapulco. On this beach the surf is strong, temperamental and impetuous; besides, there are undercurrents so it is not that suitable for swimming; however, surfers find a defying paradise on the rising waters. You can also take horseback rides along its kilometric seashore.
    It is located on the Scenic Highway (called so because it offers travellers beautiful sceneries) bound to the nearby airport of Puerto Márquez. It has restaurants specialised on the cooking of typical dishes.

    -Barra Vieja: It is a small Isle located 27 kilometres away from Acapulco. The waters of the Papagayo River and the Tres Palos Lake come together around it; besides, there is a canal that connects them to the Pacific Ocean. You can take long horseback rides on this beach. It is also known for its exquisite fish a la talla, a typical potage prepared at the local restaurants.

    -Pie de la Cuesta: Although its enraged waters scare bathers away, its magical and lighten evenings attract numerous visitors, turning it into an extremely interesting beach. Moreover, while you wait for the king sun to set, it is almost indispensable to try the tasty dishes offered at its welcoming restaurants, or gallop on the sand holding the reins of a vigorous horse.

    -La Quebrada: All the brave divers plunge into the water from this 35-metre high cliff as part of a spectacle that has become one of the traditional tourist aspects of Acapulco. The act is breathtaking and unforgettable, especially during the night, when the daring young men jump with lit torches in their hands.
    The famous cliff is not natural and it was shaped after blowing with dynamite a hill that broke in two, originating the imposing rock formation that is used by the divers since 1934.
    La Quebrada is very close to Caleta Beach, minutes away from the City centre going along López Mateos Avenue. If you wish to watch the jumps from a privileged position, go to a place called La Plancha. However, mind your steps because the zone is rather slippery.

    -Tlacopanocha: The brave seamen come ashore on its tranquil waters after a hard day's work in the Pacific. It is located beside the pier, very close to Acapulco's Main Plaza (Zócalo).
