#2 of 6 in Nature in Acapulco
Relax and have fun at Costera, a popular stretch of coastline. Central to Acapulco tourism, the developed beach caters to visitors from all over the globe. Packed bars line the sands and popular restaurants serve up locally caught seafood. If you're feeling adventurous, try out a new beach sport, such as beach volleyball, or take to the water on some jet skis. Alternatively, stick to the old classics: lying under a beach umbrella with an ice cold drink and a good book.

  • While my visit was in high season (December) and that the port was completely crowded, really worth "costerear", walk along the coast in the morning with a Chilate or afternoon with a scraping of fruit really is something that is worth the penalty experi Mentar.

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.
