AAA Editor Notes
Playa Caleta is along the peninsula in Old Acapulco. Caleta Beach and its twin, Playa Caletilla, were the jet setter beaches of choice in the 1960s, but today they cater more to Mexican families. The water is very calm here, since the island of La Roqueta deflects the brunt of Pacific currents. Inner tubes and other water sports equipment can be rented. Roaming vendors sell all sorts of trinkets and snacks.

La Roqueta can be reached by a 15-minute trip aboard a motorboat or glass-bottom boat. This is a peaceful place to sunbathe, snorkel, windsurf or just take a walk to the lighthouse. Beach chairs, inner tubes and canoes can be rented.

Standing submerged in the harbor near La Roqueta is a bronze statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The shrine is best seen on a glass-bottom boat ride, as it is not easily visible from the surface. Round-trip boat tickets can be purchased at Caleta Beach; the boat stops for a view of the statue en route to the island.
