Weekend in Acapulco



Description:

It's hard to not want to spend every second of your Acapulco vacation on its many beaches, but if you can tear yourself away, there is so much to see, do, eat, and drink in this bayside city.

Day 1 - Acapulco


For such a short stay, make the most of your experience by staying at the Fairmont Acapulco Princess, one of Acapulco's finest. It is located in the Diamante neighborhood, a bit away from Acapulco bay. As a result, it is spacious. safe, and quiet, and has its own private beach and pools with plenty of cabanas. With several excellent restaurants and a spa as well, this is the perfect base for your Acapulco vacation. The area around the hotel is full of interesting galleries, including the Galeria Las Brisas and Edith Matison's, as well as stores, restaurants, and beautiful beaches. The Capilla de la Paz is a particularly notable place to visit, with its incredible gardens and fountains, not to mention the view of the bay. If you have any time left in the day, relax on the beach or around one of the pools at the hotel. Have dinner in the neighborhood at Kookaburra, the restaurant with some of the best food, service, and views in the area. Make sure to sit on the terrace, and try to get there to enjoy the sunset (and a margarita).

Day 2 - Acapulco


In the morning, walk around downtown Acapulco to get a feel for the city, including the stores and restaurants around the city square. Visit any of the beaches around the area during the day, where you can get sun, sand, and incredible seafood on many of them. At sunset, head to La Quebrada, one of Acapulco's best sights, where the cliff divers put on a breathtaking show. Make a reservation for a table with a view at the famous Madeiras, where the barbeque is to die for.
