Road Trip Route 200, Acapulco, Pie de la Cuesta RV, Mexico

Pie de la Cuesta, RV Pacific Coast Mexico

     Several RV parks are located along the beach at Pie de la Cuesta just north of Acapulco. They come and go rapidly in a tough economy, however. The KOA listed in many guides is gone.
Drive the road between the arches at the entrance to Pie de la Cuesta and the Air Force Base and you will find the Acapulco Trailer Park along with low rise hotels and guesthouses.
     The Park is on the west facing beach which produces good sunsets. The sites are reasonably priced for full hookups at 150 pesos or about 12 USD. Buses to the city run every 15 minutes or so and stop at the front of the park. A small convenience store at the park entrance provides essentials.
     From the park it is about 20-30 minutes to the city. The buses make a loop near the Zocalo, down the main drag and then back around returning to Pie de la Cuesta. There are several pie de la Cuesta sections, not just the beach area, watch the bus signage; look for Pie de la Cuesta, La Playa, or Luces.

From there you can take Highway 200 north along the coast towards Manzanillo
