Quote: I go to Acapulco at least once every year and LOVE it. Acapulco is a place where you can have sun, sand, water sports, dancing, shopping, and good times with friends or new people you meet. It's my favorite vacation spot!

Acapulco Dream Vacation

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
I love to lie in the sun w/ a good book. It's very relaxing. I also like to swim in the ocean but in Acapulco the tide is very rough. I like to stroll along the beach in the morning as the sun comes up (less people). In the afternoon, I sit under a shady umbrella and sip a cold drink, preferably a fresh coconut with a drink prepared inside of it. After the drink, the coconut is cut up for me and my friends and I eat it. Good but not if the coconut is Green! There's plenty of places to shop, the market (if you're into that and can say NO!), a variety of places (and prices) to eat, and sites to see like the world famous cliff divers. The dance clubs in Acapulco are awesome! ...Read More

I have been a timeshare owner for some time (and my mother for much longer) and this is a great place. They plan activities here (such as a Tuesday night buffet and dance to get to know other apartment members) and give you guidance to take other day trips (shopping, snorkeling, horseback riding, glass bottom boat, etc.). It's a great place and the people are very friendly!

This restaurant is very casual (most restaurants in Acapulco are) and the staff are very polite and fun! The food is truly mexican and the best in my opinion. I got hit on the head by a mango this year and they fed me free Tequila until I about burst!

Quote:
This restaurant serves a meal that costs one price and you choose your type of appetizer (salad or appetizer), your main dish, and your dessert. You also get a drink (not alcoholic) with dinner and coffee with your dessert. It's very elegant and romantic as well.

This was my first experience here and I will definitely return. The food was excellent!

Dino's

Restaurant | "Dinos"

Quote:
Dinno's is one of the few restaurants that has been in Acapulco for years. It is good Italian food in a semi-casual atmosphere with a portion of tables outside on a balcony over the main strip. The caesar salads are made at your table and there is often entertainment (guitar playing or a violin) for your enjoyment. Keep in mind, however, if they play for you, and you seem interested they will, they expect at tip. A couple of dollars is appropriate for a table of 4. They have great lasagna and if you can eat it all-more power to you!

This restaurant is a very FUN place but LOUD. People eat AND party here and there's always music. Often the waiters will dance next to tables with the patrons. It's a very UP and fun environment. There's a bar in the center of the restaurant where sometimes the bartenders literally POUR a drink down someone's throat (if they want them to). One side of the place turns into a dance area late at night (around midnight).

Barbarojas

Restaurant

Quote:
This is a great place for a good steak and you can't find a good thick steak anywhere either! They have local food and American food, a mixture but I always go for the steak. They are right on the beach so if you get a good table you'll have a GREAT view of Acapulco Bay (day or night).

La Quebrada Cliff Divers

Attraction | "Cliff Divers"

Quote:
Watching the cliff divers is something everyone should do at least once. It's incredible and the divers all pray before diving because they DO take a chance of dying every time they judge the tide. Day or night you can get great views by boat or land. Be prepared to pay to get a good view by land.
