For thousands of annual visitors, Acapulco is the ideal holiday destination. This Pacific resort is a Mecca for those who love swimming, shopping, and an exciting nightlife. Acapulco Bay, one of the world's foremost natural harbors, is the city's centerpiece. The weather in Acapulco is without parallel, with warm waters, almost constant sunshine, and year-round temperatures in the 80s.
In recent years, Acapulco has undergone a remarkable renaissance. Classic hotels have been renovated and areas gentrified. Clean-up efforts have transformed and renewed the entire area.
It often happens that development comes at a cost to the environment. The city government has invested over $1 billion in public and private infrastructure improvements to counteract any damage that might have occurred. A program instituted in the early 1990s has cleaned up the water and is preventing pollution or any destruction of the fragile eco-balance. As a result, Acapulco is thriving in every regard. With the return of clean beaches and pollution-free waters, the balance of nature has been restored and is being protected. Recently, whales have even been sighted offshore.
Visitors to this amazing resort town find a wide variety of beach and water activities. Snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, and fishing are all popular choices. The attractions on land are equally impressive, as each of the numerous resorts boasts world-class tennis and golf facilities.
At night Acapulco is transformed as the city springs to life. The nightlife is legendary, and the constant opening of new and ever more spectacular dance clubs shows that Acapulco remains the disco capital of the world. These clubs are always crowded, so visitors usually go to several in one night. The restaurants are also well-known for their variety, and the menu choices range from simple lunch offerings to world-class cuisine.
The waters of Acapulco's famous Harbor are a crystal clear blue by day. At night, they reflect the lights of Acapulco’s dazzling skyline. The beaches are some of the most famous in the world; the variety of land, sea, and indoor activities lend excitement to each day spent in this enchanting place. People come to Acapulco to kick back, relax, and enjoy one of the best vacations they will ever experience.
