Caleta and Caletilla - really one beach separated by a hiccup of a rock outcropping - are the first beaches on the western side of the Acapulco. This where the rich and famous used to hang out in the old days. Now the relatively small area is crowded with local families and Mexican tourists, who appreciate the shallow waters and minimal waves. It's also crowded with vendors hawking all kinds of goods and services. Here you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas and water-sport equipment or take the water taxi to La Roqueta. Check out the seafood restaurants under the palapa shelters. Caletilla has a well-known handicraft fair of indigenous craftsmen.
