Playa Condesa#5 in Best Things To Do in Acapulco
Price & Hours
Playa Condesa is one of the most central and popular beaches in Acapulco, with a reputation for crowded sands and great access to watersports. To avoid the crowds, try getting to the beach before 11 a.m. You can also rent a lounge chair and umbrellas from nearby merchants. According to one traveler on TripAdvisor, "the prices for a lounge chair & umbrella tend to vary & your negotiating skills come into play," but usually the price is very affordable.
Like other parts of Mexico, Playa Condesa attracts beach vendors, but a polite refusal will usually keep them moving. The water can also get dirty, but this beach remains popular for its excellent proximity to local restaurants and shopping outlets.
Playa Condesa is also known for being particularly gay friendly, with a special "Gay Beach" section that remains popular among gay locals and travelers.
- The waves are moderate in size, and there is a flag warning system to indicate when it is too dangerous to swim." -- Yahoo! Travel
