-Tres Palos Lake:
Mangroves housing several wild birds surround it; it has a length
of 15 kilometres with a 6 kilometres width on its widest part, and
feeds with the waters of the Sábana River. The Encantada Beach is
on its banks. It is located east of Acapulco nearby
-Coyuca Lake: Its beautiful settings and its flora
and fauna variety turn it into an extremely attractive place. It
is possible to take motorboat rides to tour the Isles of La Montañosa,
Los Pájaros, La Pelona and El Presidio, and discover their numerous
bird species, with the white and black herons, the pelicans, the
storks and the seagulls standing out. Besides, there is an important
number of fishes such as the catfish, the bass, and the mojarra
fish, just to mention some of them.
It has an extension of roughly 10 kilometres from Pie de la Cuesta to Barra de Coyuca, with sport fishers and aquatic ski lovers mostly visiting it.
-Palma Sola Archaeological Compound: It is formed
by a group of rock engraves depicting human figures in different
positions. It is yet unknown when they were carved, though it is
believed that they are from the pre-classical period, or perhaps
even a little earlier. They are situated in El Veladero National
Park, in the zone known as The Amphitheatre. They can be visited
everyday from 10:00 hours to 18:00 hours. The Compound is located
6 kilometres north of Acapulco.
-Chilpancingo de Los Bravos: It is the capital
of the State of Guerrero, and it is located more than 130 kilometres
away from Acapulco. Amongst its attractions the Caves of Juxtlahuaca,
situated 60 kilometres southwest of this welcoming City, whose name
in Náhuatl language means "Place of Wasps", stand out.
There are rock paintings on the Cave's walls with images of chiefs and feathered serpents more than 3 thousand years old that might be related to the Olmeca Culture.
-Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo: Different places but which
complement each other. The first one is a modern and lavish tourist
complex that allows you to enjoy the waters of the Pacific; whilst
the second one is an old and bucolic town of fishermen located 6
kilometres away. Fun at its most in two coastal zones in the State
of Guerrero that form one of the most flashy tourist destinations
in Mexico, at only 240 kilometres northwest of Acapulco.
