Acapulco Guerrero

Acapulco offers natural beauty and permanent nightlife.
Discover why this city in Guerrero is known as the "Pearl of the Pacific".

In the 1950s, the good weather and fun atmosphere of this destination attracted the rich and famous. Elvis filmed The Idol of Acapulco here, and John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Onassis chose this place to spend their honeymoon.

Today, Acapulco is a quieter place, as the noisy parties have moved elsewhere. Instead, it offers a variety of attractions for visitors of all ages. Visit heavenly beaches, lush gardens, as well as trendy bars and nightclubs.

Acapulco is generally divided into three main zones, the traditional zone (the oldest part of Acapulco), the golden zone and the diamond zone, and is divided into a number of smaller neighborhoods. It’s also worth visiting Acapulco's suburb, Pie de la Cuesta, which has several restaurants that overlook the boardwalk and offer beautiful views.
