Playa Revolcadero

Beach in Acapulco

Beyond the Puerto Marqués turnoff and before the airport, Playa Revolcadero is a long, straight beach that has seen a recent explosion in luxury tourism and residential development. Waves are large and surfing is popular here, especially in summer, but a strong undertow makes swimming dangerous; heed lifeguards’ instructions. Horseback riding along the beach is popular.
