I have been to Acapulco years ago on a cruise and loved it. My husband and I are thinking of going to stay for two weeks mid April to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We are in our early to mid forty's, like to have fun but are not huge partyers. I like to get sun at the pool/beach - he doesn't. He likes ruins and other historical stuff. I have heard there is one ruins site there and a fort which would be right up his alley. We both enjoy shopping for Mexican crafts, boat tours to islands etc. or tours to little Mexican towns. He doesn't golf, fish or horseback ride. What other activities are there to keep us busy for two weeks as he won't lay for hours on the beach like me?
We are looking at staying at the Camino Real Acapulco Diamante. The reviews are wonderful. I realize it is in Puerto Marques - about a $10 US cab ride each way from town. We don't have children and don't really like to be surrounded by wild spring breakers or little kids on our holidays. We are concerned about the possible lack of entertainment at that hotel. We like to be able to relax in a bar/lounge and hear music - not sure if this hotel has any?? We are very fussy - we like to have a clean, safe place to stay with very good food and service and a little bit of luxury - perhaps a jacuzzi on the balcony. Price is a factor - we don't have an openended budget but are willing to pay for the right place. We don't mind having to take a taxi to see some entertainment but also don't want to be "forced" out of the hotel every night just to see some action. Not sure if this hotel has an "all inclusive" or not. We would prefer an "all-inclusive" if the food is good, but we also would eat out for dinner frequently to try all the restaurants. We usually always cruise, so we have never been to an all-inclusive, but we are fine diners and are very fussy about our food. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
