Relax on the sands of Mexico’s oldest beach resort
Travel to Acapulco for a lesson in partying. From the vibrant strip of bars and clubs in the city centre to the all-night festivals held on the beaches, Acapulco is an energetic destination during the spring. Join the crowds of students by the poolside and sip exotic cocktail mixes. Alternatively book your stay late summer and enjoy Acapulco at a slower pace. Tour the old town buildings and enjoy the exhibits in the city museum and the San Diego Fort. Religious celebrations and seasonal carnivals offer a way of embracing the Mexican culture. Experience a traditional way of life in Acapulco and join a sail fishing expedition or try ocean diving to see the virgin saint’s statue located beneath the waves. Direct flights from the UK and Europe to the Acapulco coastline are available seasonally.
Synonymous with Spring Break, an US high-school tradition of partying until sunrise- Acapulco has much more to offer those on a relaxing holiday. Discover the old town, dine in waterfront restaurants and tour the ancient churches and cathedrals. Try deep sea fishing; an ancient tradition guaranteeing a catch on every excursion.
