TRAVEL AND TOURS INFORMATION

Acapulco, the "Pearl of the Pacific", is a City that never sleeps. With its sunny days and its agitated nightlife, it beats at the rhythm of joy 24 hours a day. Its beaches of soft sands and its clear waters of turquoise colour, besides its superb tourist infrastructure, are but a few reasons why it has become one of the most important tourist destinations in Mexico and the world.

From pirates up to kings have come ashore on these coasts of exotic beauty, and beyond the reasons for their visits, the thing there is no doubt about is that they all succumbed to the paradisiacal geography of this tourist destination, which was first shown to the world in 1927, when a highway crossed its mountains, perhaps to cool on its wonderful beaches too.

With the highway not only came scores of people but also several star constellations from the Hollywood firmament and the international jet set, who in the 1960s and 70s began to be seduced by the eternal summer and the captivating beaches of Acapulco, the conceited destination of the State of Guerrero, located at only To talk about the origins of this land of perennial pleasure is to remount on time back to the year 3000 BC, when it was colonised by the Nahua Indians, who named it Acapulco, a word that translated into English means "Place of Thick Canes", a name rather austere and discreet if one considers the evident prettiness of its coasts.

Useful Information of Acapulco
Time later, when Hernán Cortés arrived in this bay in 1530, after defeating the Aztecs, he fell in love with the place not only because its natural charms, but also because its strategic geographic location, which would turn it into a nexus in the maritime route between the Philippines and Spain, and at the same time into one of the targets of choice for pirates.
The prosperity of this naval and commercial centre came to an end in 1818, when the Spaniards had to abandoned the bay pinned by the Mexican forces; thereafter the venturous aura of Acapulco dimmed dramatically, until its natural charms rescued it from oblivion more than a century later.

Nowadays Acapulco takes pride on its beautiful beaches; a rosary of sand, solace and almost endless amusement that has amongst it beads beaches such as La Caleta and Caletilla, of serene an nearly imperturbable waters, the restless Condesa of very strong, daring waves, or the sophisticated Pichilingue, the favourite of the star constellations still arriving.

But "The Pearl of the Pacific" is not only beaches and tanned bodies; it is also amusement to the limit, refreshing underwater adventures, aquatic sports that unleash your adrenaline, parties that seem or ought to be interminable, and glorious banquets with more than enough delicious plates. Here problems are relative, here the only problem is having to leave.
