Acapulco

Trip Planner Mexico  /  Pacific Coast  /  Guerrero  /  Acapulco
Probably one of Mexico's best-known beach resorts, Acapulco came into prominence in the mid-20th century, when it became a getaway for Hollywood movie starts and European millionaires. Acapulco vacations remain popular with international tourists, lured to the city by well-developed infrastructure and plenty of scenic spots along the Pacific coastline. While on holiday in Acapulco, you can stay in the city to discover a creative restaurant scene, lively nightlife, and a colorful waterfront promenade, a good place to meet the natives and other tourists. Alternatively, escape to one of the nearby villages, where you can eat, sleep, and shop like a local. To arrange what you want to do in Acapulco, use our Mexico online travel planner .

Where to stay in Acapulco

Acapulco offers accommodations catering to travelers at extreme ends of the financial scale. Pricey but luxurious beach resorts fringe the city's wineglass-curved bay and fan out to the surrounding coastline, while a dense block of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels dominates Acapulco Dorado. Among the ritzy options, you can find a wide range of inexpensive beach bungalows and hostels catering to younger, party-focused visitors. Stay a bit farther away from the center at the rocky outcrop of Las Playas to enjoy views over Acapulco's famous cliffs.
