We took a six hour bus to Playa Azul which was stretch of beach without tourists but with bars and hammocks. We booked a room for the day to keep our stuff and to get ready that night for the night bus. We should've stayed here for two days instead of Acapulco and I'll be saying that on the GAP assessment sheet we get at the end. The hotel rates were cheap so I don't see why it shouldn't be an option. Speaking of hotels, the hotels we've stayed at have been terrible. Seriously, I've stayed at hostels with better rooms and bathrooms than the hotels they've stuck us in.
The beach at Playa Azul is beautiful. Swimming without hair and without contact lenses is the best feeling!
