Travel tips you can trust
No other major resort destination in the world caters to such a range of visitor interests - from luxurious and sophisticated tastes to budget and mass partying cravings. Acapulco has it all.
Acapulco is blessed with a beautiful bay lined with smooth sandy beaches edged by mountains. This is the primary reason I rank this destination above other mass-market Mexican beach resort areas such as Cancun.
Plenty to do
Acapulco has watersports galore, from parasailing to sportfishing. On land, you can enjoy outstanding golf and tennis facilities.
Acapulco has a number of world-class resorts with gorgeous, relaxing seaside ambiances.
Eating is a favorite pastime among the vacationers. Restaurants suit all yearnings and pocketbooks, from gourmet to fastfood. Many have outdoor tables.
There is no shortage of clubs for the party-till-dawn youth.
Acapulco is also ideal for families with children in tow. Very popular is the vast waterpark.
Cliff diver watching
Daring cliff divers at La Quebrada gracefully dive from a high perch on the cliff down into a small seaside cove flanked with jagged rocks (see photo).
