Great for trying real local fish (you probably won't have heard the names) and styles of preparation at incredibly economical prices.

NileGuide Expert tip:
If you don't speak good enough Spanish to ask what the cook recommends, watch what other diners are tucking into and order that, as so much depends on what the local catch has been.
Pez Vela (sailfish) is real Acapulco dining, and where the "popular classes" go out to eat for a treat, or to cure a hangover, or both. Fish here is beautifully seasoned and delicious, and fresh, but garnishes and salads should be avoided by foreign tummies, as greens are not likely to be disinfected. Décor is colorful, with cheeky fish paintings on the walls and the clutter of nautical life, such as nets and rudders. Inexpensive and authentic, here you can get a flavor of real working class Acapulco life. You'll need cash as credit cards are not accepted. Dress casual (but not swimwear).
