In Acapulco, you can opt for a lively party vibe by staying in the city, with its creative food scene, bustling waterfront promenade, and lively nightlife. Or you can escape to nearby villages where a beach chair, bucket of cold beers, and a good book is about as much excitement as you'll find.
- Indulging in the most popular activity in town Eating out is all the rage. You can sample cuisines from around the world or feast on classics from throughout Mexico.
