AAA Editor Notes
Pie de la Cuesta is about 16 km (10 mi.) n.w. of Acapulco off Mex. 200. This village (its name means “foot of the hill”) is an easy day trip by car or taxi. The open beach stretches for about 6 miles. On the opposite side of the coastal road is the large expanse of Coyuca Lagoon, its shoreline edged with palms and mangroves. Boat rides, freshwater fishing and water skiing are popular activities here.

Thatch-roofed restaurants line the beach, and it's a nice place to chill out in a hammock. Crashing breakers and treacherous currents make swimming or body surfing very risky, however, and there are no lifeguards. Much safer is watching the sun set. Families line up rows of chairs, and vendors mill around selling snacks and trinkets. If there are clouds, the patterns of color are often magnificent; if the sky is clear the Pacific turns to pale gold as the sun drops below the horizon.
