Acapulco is the original seaside resort city of Mexico. Decades before Cancun became a hot spot, Acapulco was already the sunny playground of the rich and the famous looking to sunbathe. Set on the Pacific coast of Mexico, a mere four-hour drive from Mexico City, Acapulco is very popular with foreign tourists and people from the city who want to escape the madness of one of the biggest and most-populated metropolises in the world.

Acapulco's accommodation range is as long as the beach stretches in the shape of a crescent moon. Amongst popular high-rise resorts, you can also find smaller properties, rentals, B&Bs and hostels in Acapulco. There are options for all tastes and budgets. The south of Acapulco is busier than the north, but no matter where you decide to stay, be rest assured that a good beach is always nearby. Very inexpensive buses connect both ends of the city all day and there are plenty of taxis available night and day, at moderate rates.

Apart from days filled with beach, water sports, and tanning, Acapulco also gets its fame thanks to its nightlife. A variety of restaurants (some of them specializing in fresh seafood), bars, and clubs populate the main streets. During the warmer months, clubs with open-air terraces and a view toward the beach tend to be the most popular. If you'd like to go out of Acapulco during the day and explore the surroundings, an outing to the nearby lagoons can be a good plan for a day trip!
