Top attractions in Acapulco
Acapulco has long been one of Mexico's most loved beach resorts. From deep-sea fishing to snorkeling and sightseeing, Acapulco offers visitors a taste of many wonders.
Swimming with dolphins is a dream for many people, but in Acapulco it can become a reality. An unforgettable experience with some of the most intelligent creatures in the sea, this is sure to be a highlight of your trip.
Sightseeing in the historical city of Acapulco is a must for any visitor. The Chapel of Peace, as the symbol of the city, is a not-to-be-missed sight. It features a huge cross, visible throughout the area, and is known as a place where many religions come and worship. Another important sight is the Fort of San Diego, home to the Historical Museum of Acapulco.
After seeing these and other lovely spots in the city, consider heading out on another kind of adventure. If you enjoy fishing, the waters around the city are rich with sailfish, marlin and many other varieties. Also available are sunset and daytime cruises, as well as trips such as watching the famous Acapulco Cliff divers or eating a surf and turf lunch at the well-known Coyuca Lagoon. See as much as you can in the crystal clear waters surrounding Acapulco.
Wrap up your voyage to the port city with a shopping trip to a traditional Mexican market, to pick up a few mementos of your vacation. The flavors of Mexico shine through during a trip to beautiful, sunny Acapulco.
What people are saying about Acapulco
We were picked up at our hotel by our guides, Rudy and Diego, who took us to each activity. Along the way, we learned about the history and people. We started with horseback riding on a secluded beach, which was wonderful. Then we laid in hammocks while drinking coconut water (ate the coconut meat with lemon - delicious!). We went to a turtle sanctuary and released a baby turtle to the sea. The highlight was the zip line - 72 mph superman stye from one mountain, across the bay to another. Absolutely fantastic! We were picked up and returned to the hotel. What a wonderful day!
Our guide Rudy was excellent! He exceeded our expectations by far! I can’t believe the personalized your we got. Front row table at La Perla with a great view and delicious food. Tooootally worth the tour. I’m not a tour person but would highly recommend this. You can’t get that kind of experience on your own. We learned so much about the area and Rudy is so cheerful and went above and beyond.
It was very very nice, we enjoyed, food was good,service was good the tour guy amazing. The only thing we did no like, we had to met him in a different place(they paid for the taxi) but it was very unconformable for us, you guys have to figure out that. But in general that company is very good and responsible. Thanks to you guys GET YOUR GUIDE THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SUPER SUPER EXCELLENT.
The horseback riding was great. The beach is not crowd at all but still provides fantastic view of Pacific Ocean. However the baby turtle release ceremony was a bit disappointed as the timing was bad. There were so many people on the beach at that time, and the whole ceremony was too rush and too short. Don't feel that one is worth the money we paid.
I loved everything about this tour I released a baby turtle that I named into the ocean and I also really enjoyed the jungle boat ride and the fantastic fish dinner I had made by a wonderful Mexican cook and then to relax and a hammock and drink some fresh coconut milk what an excellent day be sure to try this tour you will not forget it.
