Acapulco de Juárez, Beaches and Fun

Acapulco is a paradise with a lot of fun. Also available are tennis, golf, bowling, beach volleyball, soccer, squash and fronton courts, scuba diving, sailing, deep sea fishing, wind surfing and jet skiing. Spectator sports include bullfighting, diving, boxing and wrestling. Important Golf Tournaments and Tennis Cups are held in Acapulco every year, as well as Triathlon and other athletic competitions. Acapulco sizzles by night, and its nightlife is legendary.

There is no place in the world that can compete with Acapulcos sophisticated dazzling night clubs and the choice of entertainment and restaurants. There is magic in the air! The view of Acapulco Bay, with its millions of lights reflecting in the water like stars, is simply breathtaking, and probably one of the most romantic scenarios in the world.

The real heartbeat of Acapulco is also the main street, Avenida Costera Miguel Aleman, known locally as just "The Costera". If you are going almost anywhere in your next Acapulco vacations (beaches, shopping, dining or drinking) you will come in contact with the Costera. Most of Acapulco's major attractions are either on or very close to this busy street. The action along the Costera is varied, and constant, making many sections of this strip a perfect spot to have lunch or dinner and do some serious people watching.The zocalo or town square is a peaceful area, shaded by giant rubber and mango trees, near the hectic center of Acapulco. The zocalo is lined ice cream stands and sidewalk cafes. Here you can mingle with the locals as they go about their daily business.

The daily routine around the zocalo is pretty much the same as it has been for years. One end of the zocalo is dominated the cathedral which was built in 1930 originally for use as a movie set. When the film crews moved out in they left the building, which was later altered into its present state.Acapulco is also a vibrant city with many centuries of history and culture to be explored.

Acapulco is a living witness of pre-Columbian times to Mexican Conquest, Independence, and Modern times. Acapulcos history even has its share of pirates, and love stories to share. Several blocks south of the zocalo is the Fuerte de San Diego, a fort built in the 18th century to protect the city against pirate attacks. The fort is very well preserved and houses a museum with some interesting displays pertaining to Mexico's history. This is another, easy to get to, attraction that is very enjoyable to the younger set.
