Coyuca Lagoon & Pie de la Cuesta
North of Acapulco is a narrow strip of beach known as Pie de la Cuesta ("at the feet of sunset"), that separates the Pacific Ocean at one side from the scenic Coyuca Lagoon of the other. Pie de la Cuesta is the ideal place to watch spectacular tropical sunsets. The waves are huge and the undertow is very strong. There are small restaurants along the beach that will prepare fresh seafood for you. The Coyuca Lagoon is noted for its tropical vegetation, tiny islands and wild life. Boat tours are offered here, and water skiing is excellent. Several scenes from well-known movies have been filmed here such as "Rambo II", early Tarzan movies and scenes from "African Queen."
