Acapulco, Mexico

Acapulco, nicknamed “Pearl of the Pacific," is Mexico’s most glamorous pacific resort. Located on a deep, semi-circular bay, Acapulco is located southwest of Mexico City. Few destinations can match its superb weather with an average of 360 days of sunshine per year and with temperatures comfortably in the 80s. 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.
