Make a holiday rental home or villa in Acapulco, Mexico your home away from home

Acapulco is a city and major sea port on the Pacific coast of Mexico, and an extremely popular tourist destination due to its excellent nightlife and top beaches – making it a direct competitor and more than viable alternative to Cancun, on Mexico’s east coast. The majority of visitors to Acapulco and looking to relax on the beaches during the day and party hard during the night, but Acapulco villas can also be found in quieter, residential areas, which offer a better option for families and couples.

Things to do in Acapulco, Mexico

The Four Tops once sang “You’ll be going loco down in Acapulco, if you stay too long”, but with plenty to see and do in the area, that is not necessarily true. The beach is often the first port of call for visitors, with many looking to unwind after a long haul flight.

Water sports take prominence along the beach, with jet skiing, water skiing, scuba diving and snorkelling all popular. Those wishing to head further out into the waters can sign up for a spot of deep sea fishing or sailing, and there are countless other fun options such as banana boats for those seeking a quick thrill. Water quality has been improved over recent years, thanks to $1 billion of investment.

The nightlife in the city is loud and goes on throughout the night and well into the next day, with a mixture of US-style and Latin-style bars and clubs to choose from. Acapulco is an extremely popular Spring Break destination, so expect everywhere to be crammed full of partygoers if you visit during this period of the year (March-April).

Zocalo is the main town square, and a shaded, relaxing place to be during the daytimes. Here you will find the city’s cathedral, a number of fountains, cafes, small restaurants and an altogether more peaceful atmosphere.
