Acapulco must see activities


Mexico's most glamorous city is undoubtedly Acapulco. Known for its hot beaches and hotter night life, Acapulco has been at the forefront of the luxury vacation for years. This celebrity resort name is Nahuatl, meaning "plain of dense reeds", and is the most visited holiday spot in Mexico. It is famous world-wide, and although the jet-set of the 1970's and 80's have moved further down the coast to the new Diamante area of town, Acapulco still retains its original character, charm and atmosphere that has made it a world-famous resort for decades.

The view of Acapulco Bay, framed by mountains and beaches, is breathtaking day or night. In the evening, the sunsets from Pie de la Cuesta is one of the best you'll see on Mexico's Pacific coast. At night, when the lights come on, Acapulco becomes a party-goer's paradise.

Acapulco activities and sidetrips:
Acapulco begins with its outdoor fun filled activities such as; parasailing, jet skiing, water skiing, boat tours, and soaking up the warm rays while relaxing on one of the many beaches.

Acapulco has nearly 20 miles of beaches, and each beach is unique in some respects. There are beaches with tranquil, calm waters, good for swimming, and beaches with stronger waves, ideal for surfers.

Among the major attractions in Acapulco are the famous cliff divers at Le Quebrada, who risk their lives with 130 foot dives into the sea from atop steep cliffs several times daily. The dives include some evening shows, during which the divers illuminate the night sky with flaming torches.

To get a taste of the local flare visit Old Acapulco and mingle away while shopping for a bargin from Talavera pottery to silver jewellery or enjoy some yummy authentic Mexican cooking.

Acapulco is famous for its delicious fresh seafood, including such classic dishes as Cerviche and Pescado a la Talla, but there are many restaurants which offer a large variety of international cuisines, as well as traditional Mexican dishes. Don't miss fish tacos, and for a cool refreshment try the orchada water or the traditional Margarita. In general, prices for meals are quite reasonable.

The fishing in Acapulco, particulary sailfish, is legendary, in fact, it's news when someone doesn't catch a fish. The snorkeling and SCUBA diving here is first rate and there are few things as exciting as simply jumping on a jet-ski and riding at full throttle across Acapulco Bay!
