Acapulco de Juárez, commonly called Acapulco, is located on the Pacific coast of Mexico. It’s the largest city in the state and Mexico’s largest beach resort metropolitan. In 1921, the Prince of Wales and future King Edward VIII visited on a fishing excursion. When a paved road linking the town to Mexico City was completed in 1931, wealthy citizens began to vacation here. Divided into three parts, explore the north end of the bay and beyond for a more traditional experience, imagine the rich and famous of the mid-20th century vacationing in “Zona Dorada” (‘golden zone’ in Spanish), and spend time in the south end, “Diamante” (‘diamond’ in Spanish). The south end features the hottest luxury hotels, golf courses, and spas. Jet-setters, royalty, and superstars knew the allure of this resort town all too well over 70 years ago, and this spot is ready to show new visitors it has kept up with modern times. Sleek hotels, famous nightclubs, gastronomy, international events, and family-friendly activities are all waiting for you!

Looking to get outdoors? The area includes amazing coastlines, mountainous terrain, small lagoons, and a major river, which all combine to create both a tropical wet and dry climate. Enjoy the ‘Pearl of the Pacific’ by sea via numerous beaches and vast amounts of aquatic sports such as parasailing, fishing charters, and diving expeditions. Enjoy it by land via a bullring, the House of Masks, the Fort of San Diego, and Parque Papagayo, which is a large family park featuring life-sized replicas of a Spanish galleon and the space shuttle Columbia, three artificial lakes, an aviary, a skating rink, rides, go-karts, and more.

If events are your inspiration, look no further! January sees The Acapulco Fair, a carnival, which overlaps both the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The Mexican Open Tennis Tournament is in March, and May is busy with both the Annual Acapulco Boat Show and The Acapulco Music Festival, also called ‘Acapulco Fest or ‘Acafest’. Surf Open Acapulco occurs in July, Triatlón Acapulco Cabo Marqués in October, and December features the World UFO Congress, as Mexico has been the prime sighting grounds for UFOs over the years, and this beautiful town was the chosen landing grounds for the annual ‘Congreso Mundial OVNI’ or World UFO Congress.
