We enjoyed a long walk all along the beach front, there's the usual beach front activities to be found, bars, restaurants, cafes, it'ss not that far to walk to old Accopuco, we only had the day there, so didn't get much time to swim.

The area from the flag to Commercial is a good place. Soriana (very modern) and Aurrera (walmarts value brand) are right across the road for food and beer. The water is pretty calm with the sheltering rocks. I've seen tourists take their hammocks and string...More
