  • I think that holidays can be besides being pleasant, illustrative of the places we visited, Acapulco is sea, beach, pool, party, drinks and food, but know its history since its founding, growth and splendor made me better appreciate this tourist destination. The Museo Histórico de Acapulco or Fort of San Diego provides this option and much more, in the meet, as acapulco was transformed the should have this type of enclosure and more interesting things. Do you know that he had to "break" a hill to improve the output of large ships and that they were not assaulted by pirates?, sounds the term "Gorge", you know that the term "they threw him to the boat" originated in this strong? visit the Museum and discover its great wealth. Victor Hugo Jasso Ortíz I.D., Director of this museum has done a great job on this site. Do you want to know something different? visit the Museum, as a separate plus you can have a spectacular view and you will love the photos at the top of the Fort.

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.
