Acapulco is a city and major sea port in the state of Guerrero on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Against the beautiful backdrop of Acapulco Bay, with its deep blue colour by day and the sparkle of the city lights reflecting at night, Acapulco offers much more than just perfect weather, beautiful beaches and exiting nightlife.
Visiting downtown and the older parts of Acapulco gives you a feel for Acapulco’s past, with the San Diego Fort, the Zócalo, and Nuestra Senora de la Soledad Church.
Splash with the dolphins at the Acapulco Mágico Mundo Marino, or buy handicrafts at the local markets. Visit Isla La Roqueta close to Acapulco, or admire the famous cliff divers at La Quebrada.
