Best Things To Do in Acapulco

The main attraction here is the beach, which stretches out across the moon-shaped shorelines that border Acapulco Bay. But when you're taking time away from the coast, catch a glimpse of local history at the Fort of San Diego in the Traditional Zone. This town also has an active nightlife scene, with an abundance of nightclubs and bars in the city center and more elegant establishments in the Diamante area.
