Acapulco is situated on the pacific coast of Mexico, south west of Mexico City. Set within an extraordinary bay this city is well known for being one of Mexico's best beach resorts. The city is split into two areas – the north boasts a more traditional feel, whereas the south is more built up with luxury hotels. Once you disembark from your ship your adventure begins in Acapulco. You can top up your tan on the city's spectacular beaches, go on a glass-bottom boat tour, witness the infamous Mexican Fiesta show, watch dare devil cliff divers jump off the 130-foot-high cliffs of La Quebrada, or perhaps just marvel at the views over the city. Whatever you choose to do – there really is something for every taste.
Shopping is a must once you're in the city of Acapulco. For designer boutiques then head for Zona Dorada (Golden Zone) or the biggest shopping centre in Acapulco – Le Gran Plaza has everything you need for a great shopping adventure. For handcrafted souvenirs then you can try Plaza Bahia for jewellery and leather materials. Remember the locals expect you to barter so don't accept the first price offered to you.
The local currency is the Mexican Peso. Acapulco is 6 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT -6).
