A trip to Acapulco attracts visitors ranging from spring breakers to cruise enthusiasts. Located on the Pacific Coast approximately 245 miles from Mexico City, Acapulco is a prime destination for scuba divers to see many rare species of coral and fish, including the Acapulco damselfish, reports the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. However, when the sun goes down, Acapulco is famous for its nightlife, with numerous discos and restaurants.
- Princess Cruises offers cruises to Acapulco leaving from many locations, including Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Among the places to visit is Los Flamingos Hotel. According to Princess Cruises' website, Hollywood legend John Wayne was the hotel's former owner, who was constantly seen about the place. La Quebrada's 130-foot cliffs and its daredevil divers are must-see attractions in the city. Princess Cruises can also organize hotel accommodations for a longer stay to explore Acapulco.
