Hi There!

You definitively have to go and see the Cliff Divers, this is a must in Acapulco.

The San Diego Fort is beautiful and is in front of the Ship´s Terminal, and if you like history you will be able to learn a lot of this port history.

The Chappel of Peace has amazings views of the bay.

The Flamingos Hotel is the best place to watch the sunset.

But if your looking for different activities, you must check the tours for shotover, bravo rafting, swim with dolphins, some tours includes the fort, chappel of peace and beach.

There's a lot of stuff to do while you are here! :d

Greetings from sunny Acapulco!

Hi!
You can purchase a day pass in different hotels, you may try Hyatt or Emporio Hotel.

Or if you want something fancy here are some really nice beach clubs, like Kaala or Cano Diamante.

If you need further information contact me

Does anyone know how much a "day pass" might cost at hotels in Acapulco. We will be on a Princess cruise in October and would like to spend the day at the beach with a nice hotel for lunch.

Hi DocM1

I don't know exactly about the cost of the day pass, but i know for sure that princess has tours like the beack break or acapulco deluxe, are both going to amazing places! One of them is one of my personal favorites.

Adriana have you ever swam with the Dolphins? If so what was it like and was it worth the cost?

It was an amazing experience!! And it really worth it! Every one i know loved the experience, this is definitively something you should do.

And i've been told that swimming with dolphins in acapulco is better than in other ports because you get to interact a lot more whit the dolphins than in puerto vallarta, or cancun.

Default Different Ideas

Well.. I recommend you to see the "green" part of acapulco.

The 3 palos lagoon and its exquisit variety of bird, the botanical garden, and the turttle camp. This options are quite different from the usual.

Also if you have time enough a visit to the beautiful Taxco might be another option.
