Playa Hornos and the adjacent Playa Morro are two of my favorite beaches in the world. I have been all over from the Rivera to Fiji and have body surfed and snorkled in Hawaii, Florida and California. These remain in my top five.
The waves are somehow powerful but gentle, fun, swimable and there is no better view anywhere. Like many places in Mexico, there are walking venors offering suntan oil, fruit, pasteries, silver -- you name it! But on the days I visited recently none were aggressive. Everyone just seemed to be enjoying perfect days at the beach!
Acapulco has had its share of notoriety lately but I saw no evidence of the drug wars from the Costera or these beaches. Of course I was not alone or out late at night.
Use common sense and you can enjoy what Acapulco has to offer -- great water and beaches, sun, friendly people and low prices.
