Acapulco, Mexico Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Even if you have no intentions of going 'loco' down in Acapulco, there's no debating the fact that it can be tempting to stay on and bask beachside in the warm Mexican sunshine. At the south end of Mexico's Central Pacific Coast, the city of Acapulco has long been a favorite destination of laid-back sun-seekers and general hedonists alike. When the sun sets and lights come on, this Mexican destination puts on an extravagant show.

Acapulco's famous cliff divers deliver a performance though, that rivals some of the best area clubs and cabarets. Slick swan dives almost make plunging 100 feet down into tiny ocean coves look easy.

If the thought of heights only emphasizes earlier revelry, recover with a day napping on one of the warm stretches of sand that set off the fa‡ade of this developed city. Choose from family-oriented beaches with gentle surf or waters busy with Sea Doos and water skiers.

Snorkellers will want to stick to less trafficked waters like those around Isla de la Roqueta or enjoy marine life in complete safety through aquarium glass at the Magico Mundo Marino. Alternatively, take a glass-bottom boat tour around Isla de la Roqueta.

Don't miss a day of fishing or an excursion around the Bay of Acapulco for sunset or a night of partying at sea.

Acapulco is about serious fun, whether sea, sand or staying out late is your thing.

Acapulco is 603 miles southeast of Puerto Vallarta and about 250 miles from Mexico City.
