  • Acapulco might be better known for Spring Break or its Jet Set heyday but the truth of the matter is that this resort city on Mexico's Pacific Coast is a family-friendly vacation destination. Here's the Top Ten Kid Friendly Things to Do in Acapulco.

    The first four attractions are designed specifically with children in mind. #1, Cici Acapulco Mágico, is a water park complete with sildes, wave pools, and marine animal shows. It's a great choice for families staying in Golden Zone Hotels.

    #2 on the list, Magico Mundo Marino, is also a marine park but it boasts a scenic location on a rocky island reached by crossing a footbridge form #5, Playas Caleta y Caletilla. Cautious parents will appreciate these safe beaches, sheltered in a small bay in the Tradtional Zone. The waves are gentle and the water is shallow.

    Parque Papagayo, #3 on of Acapulco's Kid Friendly attractions, is a large park located on the main avenue, La Costera. Kids can drive cars, or pilot boats, splash in wading pools, or climb onto a reproduction of a Manila Nao, the clipper ship that once plied the waters between Mexico and the Philippines.

    If your kids are the adventurous sorts, take them for a ride on the Shotover Jet, #7. These jet boats speed up the scenic Papagayo River outside town and it's a thrill a minute that will leave you soaked and smiling.

    The entire family will enjoy the famous La Quebrada Cliff Diving show, the #10 choice.
