Costera, Acapulco

3.2
#2 of 6 in Nature in Acapulco
Relax and have fun at Costera, a popular stretch of coastline. Central to Acapulco tourism, the developed beach caters to visitors from all over the globe. Packed bars line the sands and popular restaurants serve up locally caught seafood. If you're feeling adventurous, try out a new beach sport, such as beach volleyball, or take to the water on some jet skis. Alternatively, stick to the old classics: lying under a beach umbrella with an ice cold drink and a good book.

    The beach is nice, "Fun" at some point because the same waves you cavorting, most of the people like that... From there on out the area is very dirty, far worry charge for shade, food, etc.. You should do at least equivalent of beach cleaning, because during my stay even in federal beach or parts that belong to the hotel, if I take one to another unpleasant surprise with garbage, in addition to glasses on the beach. It would be nice that they give one checked and be organized a little cleaning, care and safety.

    It is one of the most popular coastlines and although it is called Golden zone, has a tradition of hotels of any range and different prices. You can find hotels from 400 pesos and up to what you are accustomed. Many with access to beach and Avenue with many shops of food, clothing, entertainment.

Where to stay in Acapulco

Acapulco offers accommodations catering to travelers at extreme ends of the financial scale. Pricey but luxurious beach resorts fringe the city's wineglass-curved bay and fan out to the surrounding coastline, while a dense block of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels dominates Acapulco Dorado. Among the ritzy options, you can find a wide range of inexpensive beach bungalows and hostels catering to younger, party-focused visitors. Stay a bit farther away from the center at the rocky outcrop of Las Playas to enjoy views over Acapulco's famous cliffs.
