Acapulco hotels - Acapulco Vacation
Primarily known as a spring
break destination for students looking to smother all signs of stress for
a few days, Acapulco isn't always just a playground for pre-adults. Depending
on the time of year and the way you plan things, a trip to Acapulco can
be relaxing, refreshing, or as raucous as you want.
|Undeniably lovely beaches
serve as the primer for what will surely be a satisfying getaway. There's
a reason that millions of people visit Acapulco every year, and spring
break festivities and mundane bar food are not the primary draws. For thousands
of years, yes thousands, Acapulco has been an active seaport and busy place
to be. From the Nahua Indians, who founded this city, to Cortez, who helped
to make it an important trading post, this privileged piece of land along
Mexico's Pacific coast has been attracting people from all over the world.
The main boulevard is where
it's at, and is referred to as "La Costera." As you look out over the bay
from this vantage point, it will be easy to see why Acapulco made its way
to the top of so many travelers' lists. Many of the beaches are well kept
and surprisingly picturesque, including Icacos, Hornos, Caleta and Condesa.
Guerrero State, Pacific Coast, Mexico
As opposed to some college
student tromping grounds, these swaths of sand are pretty sweet.
Another beach located off
the main thoroughfare of hotels and foot traffic is Playa Revolcadero.
The water here can be a bit rougher as this beach is not protected by the
bay, so be careful of strong currents, waves and tides. Spending some time
here will be a nice change, however, so enjoy the scenic drive and the
feeling of escaping the crowds for a bit.
(Cliff Diver) Jumping into Canal, Acapulco
|Several Acapulco hotspots
can be recommended, including Zocalo. This is essentially the town square,
and is the place to experience a more authentic taste of the local culture.
It would be helpful to know Spanish if you'd care to order enchiladas without
advertising your status as a tourist, but you'll probably be able to get
by just fine no matter what.
The prices are reasonable
here, and as you walk around you'll feel like you truly are in another
country. Hint: don't miss Acapulco's Cathedral as you wander the streets
You may have heard of another
one of Acapulco's jewels, the La Quebrada Cliff Divers.
Since 1934, daredevils have
been plunging into the shallow waters at the base of these cliffs in impressive
feats of athleticism and skill. Tourists gather to take in this awesome
sight, and without a glimpse of this phenomenon, you'll feel that something
is missing from your trip to Acapulco.
As you would expect, there
are many restaurants and watering holes to take care of your eating and
drinking needs. They range from American-style chains to bona fide Mexican
establishments, many with views of the cliff divers and sunsets over the
beach. Certain places attract the young imbibers while others offer a more
low-key vibe, so take a look around and follow your instincts. There's
something to please everyone here, from beer-chuggers to wine-sippers.
|So whether you like to dance
the night away, take long walks on the beach, explore the rougher terrain,
or kick back and work on your tan, Acapulco will have something to offer
you. Hotel choices are abundant, but remember that vacation rentals also
make a great option. Reserve yourself a beach condo where noisy neighbors
and late night disturbances will be non-issues, and space to breathe will
allow you and your traveling companions to enjoy each other's company without
having to step on one another's toes.
Acapulco aims to please,
so for a trip that will surely provide the sights, sounds, and savory memories
that you're looking to acquire during a much-needed break from the usual,
start planning your escape today.
