Acapulco "magical" city, Mexico

by apekovic

"Acapulco, Mexico"

Some of us, probably, forgot on archaic, pre-colonial or Spanish era of this incredible city inhabited since before 3000 BC. For the nowadays look and charm responsible principal architect and visionary for the development of Acapulco Miguel Alemán Valdés who was president of Mexico from 1946 to 1952. Other man is Teddy Stauffer (Mr. Acapulco) who creates the first discotheque, "The Tequila a Go-Go", and the most glamorous hotel at that time (Villa Vera). Jimmy Van Heusen (music) and Sammy Cahn (lyrics) composed the song "Come fly with me" which celebrate Acapulco city.

"Acapulco, Mexico"

The name is almost synonymous with the stars of Hollywood's heydays: Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth, Debbie Reynolds, Johnny Weissmuller, John Wayne, Howard Hughes, Eddie Fisher, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra. Last decades, Acapulco residents are Luis Miguel, Placido Domingo...

Nightlife is a something special in Acapulco.

New Years 2007 Hotel Recommendation??

by fitchick

My boyfriend and I (early 30's) and a bunch of his friends are planning a trip to Acapulco this New Years - non of us have kids. We'd like an atmosphere with a mixture of party (his friends are closer to 25) and relax (I don't want to be surrounded by 18-30 year olds). We're definately hitting up seeing DJ Tiesto at the Palladium both nights! But after new years want to chill a bit. We also want a decent size pool with nice grounds. Any suggestions?

After New Year's partying the best chill out place is with your own pool at Las Brisas Resort or the private Las Brisa beach club with fresh and ocean pools as well as a restaurant.

Las Brisas is nice. Each pair of casitas has a private pool; some casitas have wholly private pools. The site is distant from town -- though there's a fine restaurant nearby and many visitors rarely if ever leave the grounds.

More interesting, and near the center of town, is Villa Vera. It offers a few casitas with private pools; but most guests stay in nicely appointed rooms in an apartment-type building.

Boy, I'm ashamed. I didn't pick the budget that high. Good job guys. Larry, Ned, I bow my head in shame.

acapulco information for a newbie

by beariebird

Hi everyone! I'm planning a trip to Acapulco in August with my other female friend. We're both in our early 20s, are Asian-American, and would like to stay in a hotel that is close to the fantastic night scene and beaches (i.e. we would rather walk than take a cab).
Can anyone suggest a nice hotel? We would rather pay more for a SAFE place.
Also, is there a recommended visiting time? We were thinking about ten days... Is that too long?
And I'd be grateful to accept any other suggestions anyone may have.

Thanks!!!

We stayed at Fiesta Americana which was nice and although I had read crime was a problem in Acapulco, we did not think it was so bad. Any of the better hotels should be fine. Alcapulco is nice, but 10 days is probably a bit too long.

I would suggest the Acapulco Princes or the Camino Real. Beaches are cleaner and people is nicer. You can always take a taxi to all the night clubs and discos. Take lots of sun block and be careful with margaritas.
Enjoy your trip.

None of Andre's suggestions are anywhere near the Night scene or any action scene for that matter, however they are great hotels. The best you will get in the main bay area are the Hyatt, Continental Emporio and Fiesta Americana Condesa.
Palladium and Mandara are the best clubs, Bleu is also good and any of the bars on the main strip are nice. What kind of Asian Americans are you? I'm in my 20's and have been going to Aca for 10yrs. BTW, another awesome hotel is the Villa Vera, it's more of a boutique hotel about 3 steep blocks up the hill from the main bay area, but still walking distance.

Re: Re: acapulco information for a newbie

Most of the nightlife (and WalMart) is on the east side of the bay.

need4speednj is right about hotel recommendations. Do not worry about being safe, just stay along the Costera. You have no reason to go to the distant barrios where things are a bit dangerous.

Re: Re: acapulco information for a newbie

Hello Brink...Guess we are everywhere when it comes to Acapulco :-)

Re: acapulco information for a newbie

There are many small hotels in the Costera area that are clean and safe. It will be better if once you are there you do Hotel shooping so you will look for yourself and decide.
You should find good hotels for no more than $500 pesos ( $45 Dlls), for two persons. There are many reasonable priced restaurants on the Costera. You could plan on $35 Dlls a day for meals. ( Sanborns, Vips, etc ) Night life is as expensive as you want to make it deppending on your drinks.
August is rain seasson. It ussually rains in the afternoon or early evening for no more than 45 minutes.Asians are wellcome in Mexico. Have fun!!!!!!1
