On the Pacific coast of Mexico, 300 km (190 miles) southwest from Mexico City. Acapulco is located on a deep, semi-circular bay and offers visitors endless days of summer all year round.
The subtropical climate and pleasant year round temperatures draws in many foreign nationals year round providing the volume to support the numerous bars and clubs dotted around the bay.
Most beaches are in the bay area fronting the main boulevard “La Costera”. This bay area is what made Acapulco famous. Most hotels in Acapulco are found along La Costera, Acapulco’s main street along the coast, is full of bars and clubs
Nightlife in Acapulco is pretty much fun, and many places are suited for tourism including “El Alebrije”, “Disco Beach” and “Palladium”, this last having a awe-inspiring sight of the whole bay of Acapulco. Se?or Frog’s is a party place; outside you will see signs that read “Drunk Crossing”; from that you can infer what this place is like. Most clubs are open bar, while the smaller bar establishments are pay on tab. The top three are Palladium, Mandara, and Privado, all located within a mile of each other.
Since 1934 the La Quebrada Cliff Divers have performed their impressive jumps into the shallow stream of water of dangerous tides that forms in the bottom part of La Quebrada.
Though I’ve been and seen better, Acapulco was just a taste of what Mexico, though I’m undecided if I would ever return, its just one of those places you get away to discover a city full of foreigners, and culturally has little to offer.
