Best areas in Acapulco for luxury hotels

One of the best places in Acapulco to find luxury accommodation is the chic Diamante area, a district which has seen much development in recent years, including luxury hotels and upmarket restaurants. The area has some intriguing modern architecture, including the designs of some of the best top-end hotels. The Dorado district, to the north of Diamante and extending back from Acapulco Bay, is another place where you can find luxury lodgings. The Dorado area is the main destination for visitors to Acapulco, popular for its golden, sandy beaches, and lively nightlife.

Where to find the best fine dining in Acapulco

You’ll find some of Acapulco’s top restaurants in the Dorado district, where cuisines on offer include Japanese, modern Mexican, and Pacific Rim. Many of the restaurants are close to the main thoroughfare of Avenida Costera Miguel Alemán, making them easily accessible. Diamante is another district offering excellent dining experiences.

Many of the area’s luxury hotels also have restaurants serving innovative menus with plenty to tempt the gourmet.

The most unique things to do in Acapulco

Acapulco is famous for the Clavadistas de la Quebrada, the brave men who dive from high cliff ledges into impossibly small inlets on Acapulco Bay. Luxury tours are available, which include a gourmet meal followed by the spectacle of the divers performing, with cocktails to accompany the experience. If scuba diving is your thing, then you can hire a boat plus all the equipment you’ll need and go for a dive off Roqueta Island, where you’ll find gorgeously colorful tropical fish darting through spectacular coral reefs. Try the unique experience of releasing baby turtles that have been rescued by a turtle conservation center. You’ll travel by motor boat through the mangroves to the Tres Palos Lagoon, where you’ll release the turtles into the wild, helping to conserve these endangered creatures.

Best ways to get around Acapulco

There are abundant taxis available throughout Acapulco, which can be picked up on the street. Your hotel will also be able to arrange a taxi for you. Taxis do not have meters and it’s best to agree your fare before you set off. Not all taxi drivers speak English, so it’s a good idea to have your destination written down. Private limousines with drivers are also available to rent, and this is the most comfortable way to travel around the city.
