Costera has been for many years the place to walk from bar to bar or hotel to hotel being mostly safe, enjoy the walk between 6-9 p.m. and you will not have any problems, usually full of police keeping order just exercise caution at all times.

This is considered the main drag of Acapulco. Buses and taxis abound, along with shopping and restaurants. If you miss home, you can find Applebees, McDonald's, and KFC! The American university is on Costera d"alleman, along with malls and casinos. Great spot for marketplace, mall, and boutique shopping. There's something for everyone!

Walking on the costera is like a gift, you can discover part of the city.So many restaurants, bars, stores, you can choose as you wish. It has changed with the years but always something new to see and to tell the truth it is a lot cleaner then it was many years ago. We have to go back!

The costera surely isn't what it used to be even from the late 80's but it still has the appeal that stretch from the Calinda area to just past the Diana near the Emporio hotel. There are as many bars, restaurants and stores as any other destination you will find and loads of fun all in between!! Visit Acapulco you... More

When driving along this road you will see and find anything and everything for your stay in Acapulco. It stretches al along the Acapulco Bay. You will find restaurants, plazas, hotels, night clubs, pharmacies. It is as important to Acapulco as the Vegas Boulevard to Las Vegas, Nevada

Here you can find all type of restaurants,to stores,shopping centers,bars and clubs .Several hotels from different ranges and ratings.Easy access to public and private beach fronts.A little hard to find free parking spaces. Very safe with lots of Federal Police Officers patrolling day and night. In other words lots of fun when on vacation.

2013 was not the best time because of construction for the new buses! Hopefully it will be mostly done in 2014. Many local places to see along the way. Lots of small restuarants and flea markets along the way.. Quite safe I would say..Take a bus trip down the Costera, relax and enjoy the scenery. Easy economical transportation to the... More

It is well worth the trip so see the divers. It does however take an eternity to get through the downtown traffic with all the construction. so watch out. The shows are hourly from 7-11pm.
