"Acapulco - a world famous place for beach vacation" Top 5 Page for this destination Acapulco by Laura_Mexico

Acapulco Travel Guide: 368 reviews and 703 photos

This page is under construction, as I don't go to Acapulco very often but add new tips every time I get the chance to visit this beach destination... I don't have a whole lot of pictures from my trips but I will publish the ones I have although they might not be as good... I'll try to give as many tips as possible for your next trip to this nice and famous destination as well! Hope you like it!

Meanwhile, this is a nice view of the bay where Acapulco is located, taken from a postcard I got during my trip... Most of the pictures in this page were taken by myself, but a couple were not, so I thank the following sites where I found those perfect complements for my tips:

Wonderful views...

This is the view I had from my hotel room, at The Grand Mayan (Mayan Palace), during my last stay in Acapulco, which finished just yesterday (29-apr-05)! The magnificent open ocean before my eyes with the waves breaking on the soft sand, the artificial lake and the pool of the hotel with the sun shining and the breeze caressing my face...... What else can I say...!?

A beautiful sunset in Acapulco

The sun setting in Acapulco... as seen from the Playa Diamante zone, from the Mayan Palace hotel's beach... Just gorgeous...

    Nice page on Acapulco. Just to let you know -- your photo made its way to a recent VT meet in Dublin (see the nightlife tip on my Dublin page for more details). Cheers, Bill
