Northwest of the city on the Pacific on the other side of the bay, Pie de la Cuesta has a long palm-sheltered beach where the surf comes pounding in. Better to stay on shore sunning, taking a romantic walk, playing volleyball, riding a horse or all-terrain vehicle or dining on local seafood while taking in the spectacular sunset. It's 5 kilometers (3 miles) from downtown, by cab or buses leaving from El Zócalo. An interesting literary footnote: Gabriel García Márquez was inspired to write "One Hundred Years of Solitude" while driving from Acapulco to Pie de la Cuesta.
