  • Other sockets offer a contact with the local culture or historical experiences. This is not. The more local we have is the Cathedral, but it is not a place that worth visiting, full of street vendors, sometimes shows of clowns, there are also bowlers of shoes. It is not a place that stands out in some way in particular.

  • The only thing to see in Acapulco. The market is very typical of the Mexico, there are plenty of small stand selling products and varied supplies. The weekend held folk dance performances.

  • They get everything for gifts and souvenirs of the trip, but the area is a little careless, preferably go in the hours of the day.

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.
