Whether you’re here to party in the Golden Zone, relax on the beach or sightsee, this Mexican city in Guerrero is an all-inclusive destination.

Natural beauty and round-the-clock nightlife converge in Acapulco. Discover why this city in Guerrero has been dubbed the “Pearl of the Pacific.” In the 1950s, its great weather and lively atmosphere attracted the rich and famous in droves. Elvis filmed Fun in Acapulco here and John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Onassis chose it as their honeymoon destination.

The Acapulco of today has mellowed a bit, leaving boisterous partying to other spots. Instead, it offers more attractions for visitors of all ages. Explore stunning beaches, lush gardens and hip bars and nightclubs.

Join other tourists on the sandy shores in the Golden Zone. Visit its most popular beaches, Playa Condesa and Playa Icacos. Here, transition seamlessly from sunbathing by day to dancing by night. Peruse the shops, restaurants, clubs and luxury hotels along the waterfront. Play with the kids at CICI Waterpark, enjoy different watersports or try swimming with dolphins.

Explore Old Acapulco on the city’s western side. Bring your camera to Sinfonía, a stunning cliffside amphitheater. From here, you have excellent views of La Quebrada Cliffs. Watch the famous cliff divers plunging into the Pacific Ocean from dizzying heights. Step back in time at the historic San Diego Fort, built in 1616 to ward off pirate attacks.

Take a water taxi or glass-bottom boat to Isla de la Roqueta. Go snorkeling offshore or hike across the island. Check out its small zoo and lighthouse.

One of the best ways to see the city is by separating yourself from it. Enjoy spectacular vistas from Capilla de la Paz, a nondenominational chapel perched high above Acapulco Bay. Immerse yourself in local plants and animals at the nearby Jardin Botanico de Acapulco.

South of the city, toward Acapulco International Airport, experience local flavor and lighter crowds. Relax in the sun and surf at Playa de Barra Vieja and other beautiful beaches.

Visit Acapulco any time of year. Regardless of the season, expect sunshine and tropical weather conditions.

I wish we had been able to explore more of Acapulco. The staff at the resort recommended that we do not explore outside of the diamond zone without a guide. It seems like a beautiful area but, unfortunately, not safe in many spots.

Fantastic weather, security was very good during the day with lots of military and police patrols. Hot weather is good to control the spread of the virus outdoors. I will return after the world returns to normal.

We used Rudy's Tour by Van to puck us up from airport and liked him so much we used him for two personal tours and he arranged us a day of deep sea fishing. The town seems safe but not alot of things to do. Not as much of a tourist location as we hop

3/5 - Okay

Its well known acaculpo ia not a safe place, but the area where the ritz hotel is, is not damgerous, in acaoulco you can have fun with family, friends and you couple, spend your time on the beach and be relaxed .
