Best seen from a suite from the hotel play suites in the middle of the bay. Fantastic view of the whole bay

Mexicans are the most friendly people I have met. Food is excellent and yes you have to be able to say NO to many vendors but it is still my no, 1 destination and I have travelled all over the world.

If you have run out of something to do or just want to take a drive this is as good as any. Why take a tour when you can hire a cab for 70 pesos to take you to "old town" walk about and then return. It's cheap-take time to tour the marina.

If you can avoid coster while in Acapulco do! As it offers access to all stores, restaurants and night clubs it also is very noisy, full of street vendors and heavy traffic all the time.

My trip to Acapulco was really amazing. We came back after 10 years and everything was incredible and affordable, rich of flavor and the services really good. I truly recommend this place.

Just spend two weeks there and the sun shone every day and the attractions, food and sights were great. The locals were helpful at every turn and nothing to much effort.Long way from Australia to have a holiday but it was certainly worth the 3 plane trips to get to Acapulco

Multiple hotel accommodations are found along La Costera avenue. The Bay Area is perfect for jet skis, boat parachute, sun bathing, and swimming. Average prices, not luxury but worth it due to proximity to clubs and restaurants. More friendly and relaxed atmosphere during the day. Fruit/coconuts vendors are numerous, contrary to punta diamante where you can rather ride horses and... More

I love Acapulco and it's bay. We took our last trip there this past June 2016 and we felt safe where ever we went. I know there are some challenges that are going on in this area but they did not affect us. We are fortunate we have family in Acapulco and spend a lot of time with them also.
