Acapulco, Mexico Luxury Cruises

The Mexican city of Acapulco combines a lively and exciting atmosphere found within the city centre with relaxing, peaceful surrounding local villages to suit all kinds of holiday-makers. The city's 24-hour party vibe and stunning sandy beaches make it one of Mexico's most popular tourist destinations, attracting thousands of visitors every year. Once known for attracting the famous faces such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor, Acapulco had a reputation as the playground of rich celebrities. In recent times, the resort has become less exclusive but still manages to maintain the glitz and glamour of its heyday.

Sightseeing in Acapulco

Acapulco offers all visitors a fantastic all-round holiday experience. The beautiful golden beaches are perfect for relaxing and sunbathing and the city's nightlife and entertainment is amongst the best in the world. For a more peaceful excursion, tourist may wish to take a trip out of the city centre to discover the quaint villages and peaceful locations just outside of Acapulco. Aside from these great aspects of the city, Acapulco has many other sight-seeing opportunities:

La Quebrada Cliff Divers

Making the time to go see the daring La Quebrada cliff divers is an essential part of your stay in Acapulco. Cliff-divers have been jumping from incredible heights into dangerously shallow water for the entertainment of the general public since 1934. The divers perform at certain times of the day and can be seen from a small viewing platform along the cliff face for a small fee.

Isla de la Roqueta

Isla de la Roqueta is one of Acapulco's most beautiful beaches and is therefore very popular with tourists, which can often make it particularly busy at certain times of the year. The activities available at this pristine beach include renting snorkelling, kayaking and other water sports equipment to explore the surrounding ocean. Also, a glass-bottomed boat makes regular trips to the island beach, so make the most of the opportunity to view the colourful and intriguing local sea life.


To experience the authentic local culture of the city, pay a visit to the Acapulco's town square, known as Zocalo. Zocalo is a great place to get away from the tourist-centric areas of Acapulco and discover a more traditional side of the city. The square contain to fountains and many large, multi-trunked trees which are well worth seeing. Acapulco's cathedral is also located within the square, alongside a range of restaurants, shops and street entertainers.

Shopping in Acapulco

Shopping in Acapulco is as varied as it is fun. The city's huge shopping mall, known as Galerias Diana, offers visitor a wide selection of retailers selling a range of well known brands. The mall also contains a casino, a video arcade and a large cinema. For a more authentic Mexican shopping experience, head to one of Acapulco's bustling markets, such as Mercado Central, Mercado de Artesanias and Noa Noa and haggle for a bargain.

Eating Out in Acapulco

Different restaurants in Acapulco offer customers a very different experience. For a more relaxing meal, try El Amigo Miguel for excellent seafood or La Perla to have a view of the cliff divers whilst you eat. Alternatively, for a much livelier atmosphere, head to Senor Frogs restaurant and look out for the ‘drunk crossing' signs out front.
