The allure of Acapulco and the loveliness of its bay have been attracting visitors since the Spanish set up camp here in the early 1500s. And for more than 200 years, the city’s geography provided an ideal haven for Spanish galleons laden with precious cargo from the Philippine Islands, which prompted an annual merchant fair. It’s a tradition that has continued of sorts, with the city playing host to a number of larger conferences.
But for many, Acapulco is the original Mexican resort, forever linked to the Hollywood jet set of the 1950s and ’60s that flocked here during the city’s heyday. Acapulco still features a vibrant nightlife, with well-heeled nationals from Mexico City making weekend jaunts for the many clubs, restaurants and shops along the main avenue. You can also retreat to the tony hills of the Las Brisas section of town overlooking the bay, with many homes available for private events.
