Playa Revolcadero#9 in Best Things To Do in Acapulco
Price & Hours
- 0.0Food Scene
Playa Revolcadero is a true beauty of a beach located just south of Acapulco, but nearly all those familiar with it tell you to look but not touch. As pretty as Playa Revolcadero may be, its waves are too rough for even strong swimmers. This is also something to consider if you were planning a stay at the well-liked Fairmont Pierre Marques hotel (it sits on Revolcadero's sands). If you really love to swim and want to be near the best beaches for that, head to Playa Caleta and Playa Caletilla, near the Traditional Zone. The popular (but crowded) Playa Condesa is also a great choice.

#1 Playa Icacos
Adjacent to Playa Condesa is the popular -- and less-crowded -- Playa Icacos, one of the largest beaches in the area and home to the "CICI" Recreation Area, which offers watersports including sailing, motor boating, parasailing and water skiing. Here you'll find a fewer number of beach goers and vendors than Condesa, but the watersports attractions remain relatively similar.
You can access Playa Icacos through the La Palapa Hotel. It also sits near the American restaurants Hard Rock Cafe and Planet Hollywood.
