Costera is the heart of tourist area of Acapulcoo. It follows the shoreline and its lined with hotels, restaurants, shops, service outfits, etc. One can walk on it and go back along the endless beach. Taxis, buses and "collectivos" ply along it every few seconds.

The Costera has a lot of nice hotels for a very low price compared to other beach resorts. My husband daughter and I loved the bars and restaurants on the strip. Took a lighted horse carriage ride for 200 pesos plus tip.

I agree with the prior answer. El Cano is especially beautiful with delicious food and a beautiful pool. I also like the Malibu for a smaller venue. Both are near each other with spectacular views of the bay.
