Not to safe right now...the road isn't paved or lit so it is better to go in groups for security sake.

The Punta Diamante area affords an upper-class shopping and cultural experience. Nicely located near the airport, you can visit if you have a long layover in Acapulco. Great shops, food and outdoor sculptures. Definitely the opposite of old ACA!

The weather was glorious...especially after the winter we've been having in New York! The Mayan Palace Resort/Grand Mayan was beautiful. The grounds rivaled any tropical botanical gardens we've visited! The facilities are well-maintained and sparkling clean, staff was terrific and there was no pressure to take sales tour. The pool at the Mayan Palace is truly amazing...so many nooks and... More

This area in Acapulco was one of the most luxurious places I visited while my stay. It was the new Acapulco, with all the high end hotels and shopping plazas, new housing development. You could find a Sam's club, very well stoked I might add, a nice movie theater, and a couple of restaurants along the main boulevard. The beautiful... More

We liked seeing the harbor and surrounding area, wish we would have had time to enjoy it more. Our tour guide Baldo Gomez did a great job showing us as much as possible for one day.

Acapulco is an interesting place. Nightlife is awesome and eventhough the beach is not so clean everywhere, the view from/ to the bay is beautiful. I guess it depends on what you preffer, I love the beaches in the Caribbean but you cant compare those waters to any other in the world! This is the Pacific Ocean so the water... More

My recent trip to Acapulco in November 2012 was so fantastic, I'm probably going to review each and every aspect of it that I can to folks on Trip Advisor because one of the things I did down to the dime is to prepare for this trip. Although my initial desire was to spend my 50th birthday in Miami, I... More

When I first started coming to ACA this was just a hillside with a few houses. Now it is the up and coming area of Acapulco to go for great dining and night life. Some wonderful accommodations as well.
