Latin dance at its best in Acapulco. An energetic and healthy night out, as locals come here for the "salsa" not "the sauce."

NileGuide Expert tip:
Dress up to dance, or you will feel underdressed. Enjoy watching, and don't feel intimidated. if someone asks you to dance, it is good manners to accept graciously, and explain if you are unfamiliar with the steps. Most dancers are skillful enough to help guide you through and you will probably surprise yourself.
If you want to dance salsa (or cumbia, or merengue, or mambo) instead of disco, Salon Q is probably your best bet. Locals who know all the Latin steps and flourishes come here to strut their stuff, so you will get a good show by watching the dance floor, as well as enjoying the live bands who play on weekends, and the dancers and celebrity impersonators who gave a show every night at the witching hour. Right on the Costera, near Icacos beach this is a convenient location for those staying in the Golden Zone. Patrons range from 20 to 40, and dancing is more important than drinking here. That said, the cover charge includes national drinks at an open bar.
