Touted as one of the most exciting cities in the world, Acapulco is famous for its explosive nightlife,postcard beaches, unlimited water sports, first-class hotels, gourmet restaurants and the breathtaking physical beauty of Acapulco Bay. And while we wanted to just relax, here you will find massive nightclubs that are state-of-the-art temples of sensuality packed with beautiful people partying until sunrise.
The fishing in Acapulco is legendary, (while we were here one of our travel friend caught a sail fish). Snorkeling and scuba diving here is first rate and there are few things as exciting as simply jumping on a jet-ski and riding at full throttle across Acapulco Bay!
Even though that was not for us. I actually went para-sailing across the bay pulled by a speedboat. Not only was it exhilarating, but also the landing on the beach (and not "IN" the bay) I found quite challenging. I took this shot from on board a "bay tour" boat, it shows some of the beautiful homes along the cliffs of the bay not far from where the world famous "cliff divers" take their lives in their hands several times a day.~ "Travel not only stirs the blood, it also gives birth to the spirit."
