Acapulco first timer

by litlbitliz

My husband and I are going on a trip to Acapulco, specifically staying in the Mayan Palace in a couple weeks. Does anyone know what the weather is like this time of year (January). And are there a lot of people visiting at this time of year? We don't want it to be too busy, but we also don't want to be the only ones at the hotel. Has anyone ever stayed at the Mayan Palace there? We will be staying a week so we'll have lots of time to do things, any suggestions? We have been to Puerto Vallarta/Nuevo Vallarta and Ixtapa in the past few years during Spring Break time and are used to that kind of atmosphere. Is it similar in Acapulco? Are there any negative things we should be aware of there? Thank you.

It will be hot and humid usually. It will also be fairly busy. Have a great time

The weather will be very nice; it doesn't change much throughout the year. Assume daytime temp. highs of about 85 and night lows of about 68. The Mayan Palace is located on the SE edge of Acapulco, a half-hour taxi ride (under the best conditions) from the city center. About the only things out near where you're staying are the facilities on your property, and at the adjacent Princess Resort property, and the long, ocean-front beach (oftentimes too rough to go into the water). Taking public transportation isn't much of an option, so you'll be using a taxi for trips around the area, and, from the Mayan Palace, expect to pay high taxi fares (because only certain, hotel-approved taxi's are allowed to operate from there). You won't be in ACA for Spring Break, so no need to worry about that. It'll still be the "high season" of tourism, and hotel occupancy will probably be in the 65% range overall in the city/area. Weekends are the busiest periods in Acapulco, because many Mexico City residents come over for the weekend. I can't think of anything to warn you about, other than not to engage in anything related to the drug trade - follow that advise and the trip should be wonderful. Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Acapulco

Visit the local square, and...

by madigap

Visit the local square, and see the ancient (?) church. The story is that the church was originally built as a movie set, in the 40's. After the movie was filmed, the church was given to the community, and has been an actual Catholic Church since. The wonderful weather, beautiful days and nights, time to relax and enjoy shopping, sightseeing, walking on the beach or the streets, visiting friends both old and new.

BEWARE OF DOGS ON ISLA DE ROQUETA!!!

by hoorayish

Isla de Roqueta. The secluded beach was gorgeous but apparently in the last 2-3yrs the restaurant that you have to pass by to get to that gorgeous beach (a bit rocky, so watch your step and beware of the waves pushing you into waves, but it was quite incredible, totally isolated, etc).Unfortunately, when my friend and i had almost made it back to the restaurant, 3 dogs ran at us, totally unprovoked and we had to stand completely still for 10 minutes to get them to finally sit down. Then, when we realized no one could see us or was coming near so i tried to walk a total of two steps and two dogs came lunging and barking at me. One grasped the whole back of my thigh so i got a bruise all around it and it broke skin. The ower of the restaurant said the dogs usually sleep during the day and are only guarding at night but they aren't at all caged and there are no signs to warn you of their existence. The restaurant did get a doctor over right away but it was still the scariest moment of my life, i suffered with an awfully painful bruise, and the rabies shots i've had to get are terribly painful and a pain to get the whole dosage.
just a warning! the beach is amazing but i had a better time at pie de las cuesta, which buses go to. we spent all day at the beach and using the pool of a hotel pretty far in (there are a bunch of them to choose from) and only had to spend about $10 US each (even though they didn't really seem to be enforcing the minimum). Seriously, it was one of the most tranquil places ever and made up for the trauma of the previous day. Plus, there are lots of cute, tame, cuddly dogs at this place.

In Acapulco, there are towns...

by Pinoy

In Acapulco, there are towns worth to visit such as Taxco and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. By bus, from Acapulco to Taxco is about 3 hours and to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo is about 4 hours. Buy your bus ticket in advance from a travel agency that has Estrella de Oro Boletos sign. Because travel agencies are not selling round trip ticket, it is suggested to buy your return ticket when you have arrived to your destination. It is also a must to know the last trip back to Acapulco. Unless you intend to stay overnight. DO NOT purchase tickets (or tours) on the streets. These people are likely pretending to be associated with a travel agency.

la quebrada:a place to dive....

by cbeaujean

an amazing rocky creek with high cliffs.
watch the divers (=clavadistas) risking their life.
the risk is not to dive (?) but that a billow throws the diver against rocks!
the knack consists to dive at a given time when the wave goes up again,to take advantage of the quick up motion of water nivel.
