The zocalo is a market, you can bargain with them they're pretty friendly people You can get anything here, food, clothes, souveniers, but watch out for knock offs

If you go to Acapulco to look for some historical or cultural places, this is not one of them, there's not much to do or see there.

There was nothing to dislike, you have the beautiful Cathedral and all the venders and the fabulous restaurants esp. the Mia Piaci

Each year when I visit Mexico, I visit the Zocalo! Nothings says ACAPULCO better than the entire downtown experience of food, shopping, architecture, and people! It's a quick trip from my hotel via Mexican fun bus! Gotta love the entire cultural experience! Don't miss it!

I have been to more than 10 Mexico cities and towns and this is the worst zocalo in Mexico. It isn't clean, it has only a few people hanging out and very little character. A major disappointment.

It can be a great place to propose for dates and if your just there for a visit it's a good picture shooting place.
