Currency in Acapulco

by dragonannie

We've been to Mexico before and never had to worry about local currency - dollars have sufficed. Is this also true for Acapulco? We will only be there a day before boarding a cruise-ship. Thanks.

Re: Currency in Acapulco

Depends on what you buy. If you stick to the tourist shops, they will all accept your dollars. If you land up off the tourist path - like at the post office, they prefer pesos.

Have small US bills. Usually any change you get will be in pesos.

Spend Mexican Pesos, which are very easy to obtain from an ATM machine, using the card your bank has already given you. If your ship will stop at other Mexican ports, you will be able to use your additional/left-over pesos there as well.

For a look at Acapulco, before you get there . . . have a look at some of my Acapuolco online photo albums:

Travel Tips for Acapulco

See the cliff divers! They...

by rossandkelli

See the cliff divers! They climb the side of the mountain and then dive hundreds of feet to the sea below, it's incredible! They have to time it just right because of the waves coming in, if they dive too late there is not enough water. After they dive they come up through the crowd and you 'tip' them, that is how they make a living. Must see! Sunset Beach and where the fresh water meets the sea!
There are small tiki huts and hammocks to sit and relax to watch the sunset, it is peaceful and beautiful. Always wanted to horseback on the beach and finally did on Sunset was not really what I expected. The horses were the size of donkey's and looked weak. I actually felt bad riding him, he kept wanting to go home. My husband weighs 220 lbs and I thought the horses legs would buckle. It was a memerable experience though.

We had a tour guide for an entire day, took us through his village and toured the country side so we could experience everything from the richest to the poorest - an eye opening experience! We went to Sunset beach where we rented a boat and a driver for 5 hours for $40 American dollors - just amazing how cheap it was (I hear it's getting more expensive because more people are going there now). We went waterskiing and visited an authentic mexican home on a small island only accessable by boat. They had an authentic mexican kitchen and showed us how they cooked and we had a shot of their 'alcohol' - can't remember what it was but 'wow', talk about a kick!

After that we went to the beach where the fresh water meets the sea. This is where they filmed a Silvester Stallon movie (can't remember which one). Anyway, the beach jets out, very narrow, there are no buildings - it's all natural. There was something very calming and surreal about the experience. The local men were there fishing, although we could not 'speak' to one another they were very friendly and showed us how they catch fish...with a net while standing in the water. They do not catch much, possible only enough to eat. These men were very poor but seemed content in their activity.

Packing list for Acapulco

by vilip

Bathing suits, of course! Anti-acids (Mexican food!) and sun-blocks.
Also some hydratant cream, just in case you get sun burnt.
In a very special case, if you really can't sleep because of the sun burns, you can buy Corn Flour (Maizena) and pass it in your sun burn. It may sound weird but when you are in this great suffering and can't sleep, this will bring you a great relief! No need to take umbrellas or rain equipament: Acapulco has 300 sunny days a year!
A small Spanish dictionary is always welcome.
Bring your partner. The sunset in the beach is very romantic, if you are alone, you might feel depressed =( Well, maybe you can find a date there, so nevermind!

The Palladium and Enigma...

by bellagio

The Palladium and Enigma appear to be two of the top night clubs in town. Admission prices seem to vary night to night, you can pay 280 pesos to get into the Palladium but the ladies pay just 50 pesos (this was on Ladies Night). This price includes all the drinks you have. I must say though we thought the drinks were watered down.
There are loads and loads of bars along the main road (Costera Miguel Aleman) which are open all night - drinks generally were priced at around 25 to 30 pesos.

Go for a walk on the beach!

by rmdw

Whenever you visit a seaside resort, don't just stay within the perimeter of your compound. This very much applies in Acapulco! There are so many beautiful beaches here.

The main beach in downtown Acapulco is alright but it is narrow and usually very crowded. South of Acapulco is Puerto Marquez, and old fishing village. The beach here is nicer and has the advantage of having dozens of seaside restaurants next door. Further south is the gorgeous Diamond Beach (pictured here) but accessibility may be difficult if you're not staying at one of hotels/resorts in the vicinity.

Be sure to take your shoes off and let your toes snuggle into the soft, warm sand.

If you like water parks...

by Laura_Mexico

....then you should visit the CICI, which is a very old water park located close to the entrance of the town (coming from the airport) and which is a big attraction for kids (and older people)! This was the first place I ever heard of which had a pool where they simulated waves (so you could feel as if you were in the sea and not only in a regular, quiet and boring pool), it was *THE* major attraction and everyone wanted to go and swim there.
