|About these ratings|
If you need to get away from Acapulco, just travel six miles northwest to Pie de la Cuesta, a small beach resort town that contains a calm lagoon excellent for water-skiing. You'll also find many local resorts and restaurants, perfect for couples seeking secluded romance or a break from the frantic shores of Acapulco. Should you choose to stay the night, Pie de la Cuesta offers a variety of hotel options.
You can also take a boat tour around the lagoon for a small fee. Another popular attraction is the Barra de Coyuca spa, which is contained in a simple thatched hut. The spa offers affordable facials or full-body mud treatments. While Pie de la Cuesta offers travelers respite from an often crowded (and frankly, dated) Acapulco, the area isn't ideal for those seeking excellent restaurants and nightlife options. For that, try the closer Acapulco Diamante.
