Acapulco Nightlife

Acapulco rolls up its sidewalks much earlier than it did during its “dance until dawn” heyday, with most places winding down by 11 pm. Lingering over dinner or drinks has become a time-honored way to spend an evening here, and most visitors enjoy that low-key tranquillity. Your hotel may have something special going on, too, on certain nights, so be sure to ask. You’ll still see some action

Friday and Saturday night; Wednesday and Thursday have a bit less going on while Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday are generally pretty quiet. Of course, the cliff-diving spectacle at La Quebrada still makes the most memorable Acapulco evening.

Drinks typically cost $3–$5, and two-for-one drink specials during happy hour are common. Waitstaff depends on tips in the 15%–20% range. Note that Mexico's legal drinking age is 18. When you’re ready to call it a night, call a taxi to take you back to your hotel or have someone at the venue do it rather than flagging down a cab on the street yourself.
