HOW DO YOU GET THERE FROM DOWNTOWN ACAPULCO

Best surf spot ever is 6 hours south of Acapulco in PUERTO ESCONDIDO. Plenty of surf shops and great waves.

I've been going there for 23 years & have a house in Brisa Mar below Las Brisas. The only decent surf nearby is BonFil, Revolcadero sucks unless you like cornerless closeouts. I have hit some decent waves just south of Acapulco Princess hotel before BonFil. Kind of a long walk on very hot sand, but worth a look. If you don't want to venture outside of Aca area, BonFil is pretty much it. Barra Vieja is further down & not worth the extra driving. You might find boards to rent at the beach, but they're all shit. A couple surf shops in town, but they rape anyone not local, especially Gringos. If you really want to surf, man up & take your own board[s].

I've seen sharks there [BonFil] several times but the surf was always too good to get out- they weren't swimming toward me anyway so it was all good, LOL. Most sightings were baby hammerheads caught in the outside peaks- too small to eat you. Watch out for the rebar [that's right, metal rebar] poking up in the shorebreak- the fisherman use them for their nets. Easy to spot at low tide, but they disappear when it goes high. If you nail one, you'll probably die or be maimed for life.

Summer time means lots of rain, brown water, & large surf. Sorry, but Summer time is generally shi++y, despite larger size. Winter is dry, clear water, & smaller, but very, very fun. I hit near-stand-up barrels last Dec, so it doesn't have to be as small as some may lead you to believe. Lefts & rights were equally perfect- peaks everywhere. BUT, I have seen long stretches of tiny surf syndrome too, but that happens globally, so deal with it & check the charts before you go.

If you want whores & blow, they are in town, but this is a surf forum, so find them yourself if you're into that. Tons of bikinis in Dec-Jan, but most aren't worth looking at where the surf is, & if they are hot, they aren't alone, usually surrounded by family. Single hotties hang out along the surfless shi+hole Bay...one of the highest bacterial counts on the planet. I won't swim in it. Food/accommodations in Aca proper [Dec-Jan] will empty your wallet quickly since it's high season.
