Legendary for its glamour, Acapulco has long been a favorite of the jet set. Add in its warm hospitality and a great resort lifestyle, and its no wonder Acapulco has been called the "queen of Mexican beach resorts"! Set around a beautiful, crescent-shaped bay and backed by the white towers of the high-rise hotels and, behind them, the jungly green foothills of the Sierra.
There are hundreds of thousands of people here throughout the year – the town itself has a population approaching one and a half million out of season. The busiest months are Dec–Feb, and most of the big hotels remain nearly full. Acapulco graciously blends captivating scenery with 24-hour excitement. From golf, tennis and water sports, to dining by the light of the moon and dancing under the stars, the action here is truly non-stop! Accommodations can be found in three main areas. The Acapulco Bay/Costera Hotel Zone is set right in the heart of the best shopping nightlife and dining; while the beach resorts of the Diamante Area and Playa Revolcadero offer quieter enjoyment just south of Acapulco Bay.
Among Acapulco's favorite pastimes are watching cliff divers make their death-defying leap into the sea from the La Quebrada rocks, strolling the seaside in Old Acapulco and shopping in the colorful Municipal Market. For a beach getaway, come see why Acapulco is Mexico's first lady of fun!
