Awaiting Your Return FROM Shore
Acapulco stands like a regal queen on the edge
of Mexico's glorious Pacific coast, boasting one of the world's most
beautiful bays. The surrounding Sierra Madre mountain range, covered with
lush tropical greenery, appears to tumble right into the sea, creating a
magnificent natural setting.
Bordered by warm, clear waters, Acapulco delights sun lovers, shoppers,
sports buffs and those who want to rest and relax. Everything is easy to
find, either on or off the long, sweeping seaside highway known as The
In colonial times, Acapulco was the terminal for the Manila convoy. Battles
for Mexican independence were fought at Fuerte de San Diego, Acapulco's main
defense that looms above the port. The fort was also used to protect the
port FROM the attack of pirates such as Drake. This centrally located,
star-shaped fort houses a museum that brings Acapulco's colorful history of
Indians, pirates and Spanish Viceroys into focus, and traces the city's
important role in Mexico's early trade with the Orient.
Acapulco has always been a front-runner. It was the first resort to attract
international visitors to Mexico in a big way. There is more authentic
Mexican flavor here than elsewhere because of the large year-round
population. It is packed with the best that Mexico has to offer glorious
beaches, abundant shopping, incredible dining, a contagious spontaneity and
an unmistakable aura of rest and relaxation.
