On the contrary, the Hornos beach, located in the port of Acapulco, which is one of the busiest destinations, is at the limit to be considered a sanitary risk, with 199 bacteria per 100 milliliters of water.

The beaches of Caletilla, Zihuatanejo, and Papagayo are also considered contaminated.
The World Health Organization dictates that if there are 200 fecal streptococci and enterococci per 100 milliliters of water, the place should be declared “unfit” for human habitation since they can cause gastrointestinal and acute respiratory diseases
