Had a nice lunch here at Cabana de Caleta

Stopped here for lunch and a look at the beach. It is a relatively small but beautiful beach. I'm told it is very popular with locals on the weekends

The beach is right beside the Acamar Hotel. Despite the many people on the beach it is clean enough. At night the beach is illuminated and you can float all the night. Don't be afraid of sharks, nobody saw them there. If you are lucky enough you can find a big beautiful part of a coral.

You really can't go wrong with ANY beach in Acapulco. The water is warm, and the water is very calm. Fun for kids to play in as well!

Well, its not where the cosmopolitan people come to take a sun bath, its where the local comes to have a day off, but its not too clean and over crowded.

This is a great spot for families, with an amazing area to swim in. There are a few little restaurants nearby and tables and chairs on the beach.

This place is full of average poor people who do not take care of the beaches , they throw trash, come in bundles and do not respect privacy, not recommended until more police presence.

A wonderful beach for swimming! Therefore, Caleta was more crowded than other areas of Acapulco Bay. However, it was worth the day spent there. People watching was fun, along with the various vendors at the mnarketplace. Some real deals and the vendors expected you to bicker! Interesting!
