Get the measure of this famous resort town with a morning tour. You’ll see sweeping Acapulco Bay, stroll through lush tropical gardens, shop for authentic handicrafts and see the city’s famous La Quebrada cliff divers, who plummet from over 90 feet (30 meters) into the ocean below (at night it’s even more spectacular).
Bring out your hidden Hemingway with some deep-sea fishing. Head out early on a 44 foot fishing boat and with any luck you’ll return with sailfish, dorado or even a marlin. Or how about a beginners' scuba diving course? You’ll learn all you need to know and see beautiful coral and fish while you’re at it.
Travel into the mountains north of Acapulco and discover Taxco, a wonderfully preserved colonial city in a stunning slope-hugging setting. It was long associated with the silver trade, with numerous mines in the area yielding the precious metal.
