United Mexican StatesAcapulco, Mexico: Getting Around

 Getting Around     

By Bus: Two kinds of buses run along the Costera: pastel color-coded buses and regular "school buses." New air-conditioned tourist buses (Aca Tur Bus) charge a few cents more than the old school buses. Covered bus stops are all along the Costera, with maps on the walls showing routes to major sights and hotels..

By Car: Rental cars are available at the airport and at hotel desks along the Costera. Unless you plan on exploring outlying areas, take taxis or use the easy and inexpensive public buses

Areas of Acapulco

Tourist areas are roughly divided into three sections:

(1) Old Acapulco (Acapulco Viejo) is the original town

(2) The second section is the Hotel Zone (Zona Hotelera); it follows the main boulevard, Costera Miguel Alemán (or just "the Costera"), as it runs east along the bay from downtown.

(3) Avenida Cuauhtémoc is the major artery running roughly parallel to the Costera. The third major area begins just beyond the Hyatt Regency Hotel, where the name of the Costera changes to Carretera Escénica (Scenic Hwy.), which continues all the way to the airport. The area fronting the beach is Acapulco Diamante which many consider to be Acapulco's most desirable address.
