About Acapulco

Acapulco

Acapulco is a major seaport city in the state of Guerrero in Mexico. Located 380 km south of Mexico City, it is best known as Mexico’s oldest tourist destination with many well-known beach resorts. It became popular in the 50’s as a popular getaway for Hollywood stars and millionaires. It is now dominated by luxury hotels. The northern end of the bay is the older section of the town, and has the boardwalk and the main square, with Mexican-style hotels, discos and eateries. The newer section of the town is the south-end of the bay and holds the newer constructions. The older section caters to the middle class, while the newer area caters to the high class tourists and residents.

Things to keep in mind:

In the beaches and streets which are full of locals selling small trinkets, souvenirs and gift items, pickpocketing is definitely an issue, as they’re fairly crowded. So one must take proper care of their things and not carry any valuables preferably. There is also illegal sale of drugs in such places, which the tourists should strictly steer-clear of, since it might get one arrested. Tap water is generally not clean and if consumed, could cause stomach aches, hepatitis or other ailments. Hence its always safer to purchase bottled water, which is easily available. The travelers should stick to touristy and fairly populated areas and not venture into unknown places. For the general tourist, the local police can sometimes pose a threat since bribery and extortions are common here. To avoid that, a low profile should be kept in public places, since it’ll likely attract less attention from the cops.

Dine:

Acapulco offers a wide assortment of options to food enthusiasts. Restaurants of not only Mexican, but also a variety of other cuisines are available all over the city. Personalized dining options and specialized cuisines make dining in Acapulco a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Though the world-class dining in luxurious restaurants is bound to take a toll on your budget, cheap alternatives and fast food chains are also available in abundance. ‘100% Natural’, a Mexican food chain present in many locations throughout the city, offers traditional Mexican food with a healthy twist and a multitude of tropical and invigorating fruit juice blends. This is a healthy option at a cheap rate. Places like Señor Frog's , Casanova , La Perla and El Amigo Miguel offer various options such as Italian, sea food, etc, but are comparatively expensive. Acapulco has a vibrant nightlife, with plenty of bars and clubs available. La Costera, Acapulco's main street along the coast, is full of bars and clubs that are frequented by party-goers.

Local Culture:

Acapulco is renowned for its vibrant nightlife and a bevy of clubs, bars and discotheques . This city is frequented by American teens and young adults during their spring breaks, who are here to party and let loose. There are many beaches that are frequently visited by tourists, who come here to sunbathe and relax. Adventure sports such as bungee jumping, cliff diving, scuba diving and boating are also popular here.
