Top Attractions in Acapulco

The biggest draw for those taking a holiday in Acapulco is undoubtedly the beautiful beaches. Boasting golden sands and crystal clear waters, Hornos, Papagayo, Tamarindos and Icacos, all of which are in the bay, prove to be the most popular while Caleta and Langosta beaches run along the open ocean and are perfect for those seeking something a little more laid back. Don't miss the spectacle that's cliff diving during your Acapulco break where divers plunge off sky-high cliffs into the depths of the ocean below – it's a breath-holding sight that has to be seen!

Where to Stay in Acapulco

There are plenty of hotels in Acapulco to choose from, most of which are found along the main beachfront boulevard 'La Costera'. The further along you go west, towards old Acapulco and the Zócalo town square, the cheaper accommodation gets, which is worth bearing in mind if you're on a budget. Being a very popular Spring Break destination, prices in March and April rocket and it can be impossible to find hotels at the last minute, so make sure you book well ahead of time if you're planning to take a holiday in Acapulco during this peak period.
