Day 1 - Acapulco


For the utmost in service and relaxation, the Mayan is one of Acapulco's most upscale and family-friendly resorts. The kid's water park alone is enough of a pull, with tons of slides and a lazy river, all kid-safe. A bit out of town and amid its own huge grounds, the Mayan is safe and beautifully kept up, with its own beach, pools, and great restaurants, too. Opt for the Grand Mayan over the Mayan Palace, for room size and modernity. Head into town on your first day in Acapulco for a glass-bottomed boat tour of the bay, and choose one that takes you out to Isla Roqueta, where there is a small zoo that's enjoyable. You may also pass over the sunken statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe. There are several beaches in the area that are perfect for families, including the Playa Majahua, or just enjoy the different options around the hotel. Dinner at Fersato's is always fun, with the incredible decor and great traditional fare that ranges from basic tacos to incredible seafood dishes.

Castillo del Rey Leon is a particularly enjoyable beach club, with activities for vacationers of all ages and a nice restaurant. There's simple and delicious for the kids and traditional and spicy dishes for the adults at Pollo Giro.

Day 3 - Acapulco


You can spend the morning walking around downtown Acapulco, near the Zocalo, or central square. There's much to see here, with lots of locals going about their daily business amid the multitude of interesting small local businesses. If you are travelling with older children, the Swiss Divers offer a snorkeling tour in a safe area of the bay for a look at the underwater animal life. It's hard to concentrate on the food during dinner at La Granja with so much going on, including the little zoo, but its sure to be a hit with children.

Day 4 - Acapulco


Playa Caleta y Caletilla is another family-oriented beach, so head here or make the best use of the hotel beach for a game of volleyball or for some body surfing. The main can't-miss is the cliff divers at La Quebrada, a famous Acapulco tradition, which gets even more exciting at night but is breathtaking during the day, too, if everyone's getting too tired. A small fee gets a view from the observation deck and a beverage. Julio's may look simple based on decor, but the wide range and high quality of the food make this a great place for your last taste of Acapulco cooking.
