Acapulco, on Mexico's Pacific Riviera, could easily be called the "mother" of all Mexican beach resorts. Its bay and harbor are among the most beautiful and scenic in the world.
Today's Acapulco can be as relaxing or frantic as one desires. Its beaches invite one to cuddle up to a book while rocking in a hammock and soaking in the sun rays. At night, the discos come alive close to midnight and start emptying when the sun starts breaking through the eastern horizon. In between, one can savor cuisines from around the world in a wide variety of gourmet restaurants, some with breath-taking views of the bay.
All water sports can be found in Acapulco - deep sea fishing, water skiing, wind surfing and scuba diving. Golfers can tee up at five golf courses in the area. All have beautifully maintained fairways and traps with challenging water hazards set amid beautiful palm trees. Over three hundred species of local birds satisfy ardent bird watchers and nature lovers.
For corporate meetings, trade shows and conventions, there are over 10,000 deluxe category rooms in hotels with full meeting facilities. The Acapulco Convention Center is centrally located and equipped to handle most major conventions and trade shows. Fort San Diego situated on the location of the original Spanish fort built in the 16th Century is the site of the annual Acapulco Film Festival.
