While it isn’t the booming tourist hub that it once was, this charming destination on the Pacific Ocean hosts a number of fun and interesting attractions that make this town more than worthy of consideration the next time you plan your next vacation to Mexico. Here are five of the top Acapulco tours.
# 5 Acapulco Scuba Diving
Get ready for an exciting submersion into the depths of Acapulco Bay or the Boca Chica Channel. Choose from a host of great dive sites and head out on an aquatic exploration of the underwater world of the Mexican Pacific on an Acapulco scuba diving excursion. While diving here is particularly a good choice for the future Jacques Cousteau’s of the world who have yet to get their PADI certification, it also includes excellent options for the experienced diver. So what are you waiting for? Jump in and discover Acapulco from a different angle!
# 4 Acapulco City Tour
With Acapulco having fallen somewhat out of the international tourism circuit, the many fun and exciting attractions this great town has to offer now feel a bit like they’re off-the-beaten-path. But have no fear, because the Acapulco City Tour takes you to all the must-see places that once made this jewel of the Pacific one of Mexico’s top tourist destinations. Whether exploring the scenic highway for spectacular views of Acapulco Bay, visiting the world-famous Princess Hotel or taking a stroll through the city’s hotel zone and historic downtown district, you’ll get an appreciation for the striking beauty of this charming town on the sea. End your trip with a visit to La Quebrada to see Acapulco’s most famed attraction: the brave cliff divers!
# 3 Acapulco Sunset Cruise
Acapulco boasts some of Mexico’s most spectacular sunsets, and there’s no better way to enjoy these awe-inspiring displays of nature than on an Acapulco Sunset Cruise. Cruise the Acapulco Bay as you enjoy an evening of great music, live shows and extremely fun environment. Dance on board the ACA REY as you marvel at the stars shining up above and the city lights illuminating the gorgeous Acapulcan coastline.
# 2 Palao Island
Take a ride aboard a glass-bottom boat on this fun adventure for the entire family. Head out to Palao Island and explore a fantastic world of tropical flora and fauna. Along the way, witness the brave La Quebrada cliff divers as they challenge the odds on their daring dives into the narrow pocket of ocean water. A visit to Palao allows you the chance to discover the beauty of this little island in the Pacific, swim in the gentle waters or simply relax at gorgeous beaches while you savor delicious cocktails and snacks from the open bar.
# 1 Acapulco Cliff Diver Dinner Show
The adrenaline grips you as you watch the dramatic scene about to unfurl before your very eyes. Off into the distance you see a man perching on a cliff, gazing down over 115 feet into the depths of the Pacific Ocean like some kind of bird of prey patiently waiting to pounce on its victim at any second. You feel the ocean breeze caress your skin as you stand mesmerized by this tiny-looking figure about to make a plunge into the 13 foot deep opening located perfectly in between several sharp rocks. The diver waits in anticipation of the next big wave. Otherwise, a leap into these agitated waters could end in serious injury or even death. Then the moment arrives; his knees begin bending downwards before suddenly thrusting the diver up and out into the void. Arms extended and body outstretched, the man begins to furl down into the restless depths of ocean blue. And as exciting as it may be to watch, don’t forget to eat and drink. It is, after all, part of the Acapulco Cliff Dive Dinner Show.
