Acapulco, Mexico

Your Acapulco vacation

Acapulco is enormously popular, both with international visitors and the thousands of weekend tourists who come from Mexico City for the beaches and unbeatable nightlife.

What brought early tourists to this broad sweep of beach and bay - a delightful, sunny climate and a great array of sports and dining options.

A must-see is offered at La Quebrada (kay-brah-dah) north of the city. Cliff divers plunge 39 m (130 feet) into a tiny sea pool of churning water, and are rewarded by tips and applause by the appreciative crowds.

Outdoor activities include deepsea fishing, golf on five golf courses, and tennis courts abound. And of course perfecting your tan, along with the other bronzed bodies on the beach. They may be sleeping... because they are recovering from, or preparing for, the town's incredible nightlife.

Things start to warm up around 11 p.m. and peak when the fireworks go off over the bay around 2 a.m. But most clubs stay open til breakfast time. So you may find yourself asleep on the beach too!

Acapulco is also a great destination if you enjoy a little retail therapy on your vacation. There's a colourful central market perfect for bargaining for t-shirts and souvenirs, and elsewhere there are sparkling malls and the famous department store Sanborn's.

Getting around is super-easy. Hundreds of VW Beetle (the "old" kind) taxis scuttle up and down the Costera, or main boulevard. Rates are posted in hotel lobbies as most don't have meters.

  • Best Time to Go

    Like many areas in Central America, Acapulco has two seasons: wet and dry. The dry season (between November and May) is the best time to visit, as the weather then is dry, warm, and sunny for water sports, with balmy nights for bar hopping and dancing. If you are looking for something a little daring, mid-February is the time for the Acapulco Carnival. During this wet season, while the temperatures are similar, the rains make it more humid. On a brighter note, the beaches are less crowded, and you may find it easier to get good rates, although many local businesses just close.

  • Baby'O

    While this club caters to the wealthier travellers, many locals consider it the best club in town because of the exclusivity; a table here means the royal treatment.

  • La Casa de la Cultura

    A small archaeological museum, art gallery, and gift shop, featuring handmade baskets, hammocks, and shawls.

  • Palma Sola Archeological Zone

    Rock carvings date thousands of years old, with few visitors and a steep climb to well-marked carvings.

  • Barraya de Coyuca

    At the Pie de la Cuesta, the point where the lagoon and bay meet is the Barra de Coyuca, magical at sunset.

  • Acapulco Botanical Garden Esther Pliego de Salinas

    This recent addition to the local botanical gardens displays masses of tropical plants and flowers halfway up the mountain.

    Don't forget to make time to watch the awe-inspiring La Quebrada cliff divers leap into the ocean far below them. Then climb the hill to the Chapel of Peace and enjoy the view of the entire city from above.
