Not too crowded

We were there on weekdays and had a fun time watching the water activities. Just watched but did not partake.

We enjoyed a long walk all along the beach front, there's the usual beach front activities to be found, bars, restaurants, cafes, it'ss not that far to walk to old Accopuco, we only had the day there, so didn't get much time to swim.

Playa Hornos and the adjacent Playa Morro are two of my favorite beaches in the world. I have been all over from the Rivera to Fiji and have body surfed and snorkled in Hawaii, Florida and California. These remain in my top five. The waves are somehow powerful but gentle, fun, swimable and there is no better view anywhere. Like... More

Lots of locals use this beach. Week-ends and holidays very busy. Beach restaurants close by. Nice view and nice beach.

Not the best choice for us, we prefer much more natural and quiet beaches withou commerce. So I would recommend Diamond beach - reachable by bus in about 20 min from Centro.

Go to La Union on Playa Hornos and meet Cerillo. You have to just love the guy. Except for some gray hair (but who has not gotten those) he has not changed in 30 plus years. Great Papas Fritas and cold beer and good ceviche and of course Pazolle on Thursday.

The area from the flag to Commercial is a good place. Soriana (very modern) and Aurrera (walmarts value brand) are right across the road for food and beer. The water is pretty calm with the sheltering rocks. I've seen tourists take their hammocks and string them between palm trees for the day. Very easy to do.
