    Sport fishing has attracted anglers to bountiful Pacific Ocean fishing grounds since the 1930s. Snorkelers and scuba divers can explore Acapulco Bay's undersea attractions on boat, wreck, nitrox, and nighttime dives. Surfers head south to the waves at Revolcadero Beach and Barra Vieja. Beach vendors supply jet skis, banana boats, and parasailing. Sailors can rent luxury motor yachts to cruise hidden coves. Hotels and private clubs maintain beautifully located tennis courts and golf courses.

    The Number One choice for an active day is surfing lessons offered through Piquant Surf Shop. Owner Antonio Diaz is a caring, thorough teacher who has something to offer all surfers, whether aspiring or advanced.

    You can enjoy the Number Three Active Thing to Do simply by getting up off your beach towel - if you happen to be lying on Playa Condesa. Sun-tanned vendors rent personal watercraft like jetskis and pull bouncing "banana" boats filled with families screaming with delight as they race over the waves.

    Kids and their parents will get a kick out of Number Six: horseback riding at Pie de la Cuesta. The small beach town is located just a few miles north of Acapulco along a stretch of crashing surf that is too dangerous to swim in. Riding one of the horses cared for by men like Jose Luis (who works in front of Tres Marias Restaurant) is a great way to experience this beautiful area.
