Most visitors who venture out to Pie de la Cuesta are probably heading out for an eco-holiday at the freshwater lake called Laguna de Coyuca. Pie de la Cuesta is about a 6-mile drive west of Traditional Acapulco. If you do venture out, buy a beer and soak up the sun on the Pacific Ocean side, but use caution if you go into the surf; it can be tricky. Instead, save your dip for the lagoon side. There’s plenty to do, including horseback riding, birdwatching, windsurfing and kayaking. Pie de la Cuesta is also known for the beauty of its sunsets. If you’re digging it, and you want to spend the night, there’s a selection of hotels ranging from 150-room properties to those with only a handful of keys.
