With the majestic Sierra Madre as backdrop, this beautiful fresh water lagoon located 6.2 miles 
north of Acapulco is about 10.5 miles long, 4.9 miles wide and has a maximum depth of 23 feet. 
It has a wide variety of tropical flora and fauna and up to 14 different species of edible fish such 
as robalo, lisa, mojarra, pargo de piedra, cuatete, bagre and carp,  among others, and freshwater
shrimp and crabs, all of which you can buy in the small town of the Embarcadero.
A boat cruise will allow you to observe a lush tropical vegetation, with groves of tall,
lanky coconut trees  swaying in the breeze, mangroves and water hyacinths floating 
along the shore, and will take you to the Isla Presidio,  the Isla Montosa o de Pío Quinto 
and the Isla de los Pájaros,  which are bird sanctuaries full of black and white herons,
pelicans, ducks, marabús, avocetas, gulls, storks and dozens of other tropical species.
The lagoon was the setting of several Tarzan movies and of Rambo ll and
offers a superb natural film location for jungle and tropical adventure movies.
