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. Our Mexico tourist route planner allows you to plan your trip to Acapulco and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

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.
