Acapulco - Mexico Highlights:
Resort, Cliff diving at Le Quebrada, Beaches
Acapulco, nicknamed "Pearl of the Pacific," is Mexico's fun capital and its most glamorous pacific resort. Few destinations can match its superb weather, an average of 360 days of sunshine per year, with temperatures comfortably in the 80's. Situated on a deep, semicircular bay, Acapulco has the best harbour on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The town runs along a narrow strip of land between surrounding steep mountains and the bay. The most popular hotels and beaches are to the east, around the bay from the zocalo - Playas Hornos, Hornitos, Condesa and Icacos. Remember to see the famous cliff diving at Le Quebrada.

The harbour was discovered by Cortes in 1531 and a settlement established in 1550. Acapulco was important as a port city for Spanish galleons sailing between Spain and the Orient long before it was "discovered" as a vacation playground. However, sea traffic dwindled after Mexico gained independence, and Acapulco saw few visitors until 1927, when a paved road over the mountains led it to become Mexico's first resort city on the West Coast.

There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port. Click the month or cruise line logo you are interested in to see details of the cruises.
