Tres Palos and Coyuca Lagoons

Acapulco

On both sides of the Acapulco bay, you´ll find two important lagoons: to the north is the Coyuca Lagoon, to the south is the Tres Palos Lagoon. These fresh water lakes are ideal to practice ecotourism, since their boat rides take you to discover its natural wonders.

Coyuca Lagoon
Right behind “Pie de la Cuesta”, the Coyuca lagoon is a protector of mangroves and home of migrating birds. The emerging beaches are the frequent stops of boat trips for snacks and drinks in the middle of the water or to watch frogs jumping all over the place.

One of its main secrets is the “choza de Doña Polita” (polita´s rustic house), a local character who got famous for creating mud masks that guarantee to “rejuvenate” the face. After the passing of “Doña Polita” her daughter kept the secret formula of the treatment and kept receiving people from everywhere seeking to look young again.

Laguna Tres Palos
This lagoon is located at the other end of the Acapulco Bay, on the south side, just near the limit line with Barra Vieja. It has an extension of 9.3 miles made up of channels that are navigated by boat.

In one of the farest arms of the lagoon, there is a Lotus flower garden. The tour guides allow you to make a necklace with the flowers. Also, in the bottom of the lagoon there is black mud to make exfoliating masks.
