Acapulco nightlife is one of the biggest draws of this popular resort destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico, and contributes to the popularity of spring break here. Even as more modern places like Cancun and Cabo San Lucas have absorbed a good portion of the tourist influx in past years, Acapulco remains party central for those looking to soak up the rays during the day and dance all night long. Acapulco clubs are massive. They are located throughout the city and are generally open until at least four or five in the morning. Although they may not advertise as such, many of these clubs stay open until there are not enough people to justify staying open anymore. The same is true for bars in Acapulco Mexico.
The nightlife scene does not even get revving until around midnight. In fact, it is not at all uncommon for people to go out to dinner between 11 p.m. and midnight and then follow it up with a night of dancing and partying at the clubs. For those seeking serene and tranquil vacations, Acapulco may not be the best bet. On the other hand, if what you seek are gorgeous beaches and expansive nightclubs with a multitude of attractive people, Acapulco may just top the list of the best places to visit in Mexico. There are mega clubs in Las Brisas and along popular beaches like Caleta and Condesa in the north of the city as well as huge nightclubs spread throughout the downtown area, especially toward the southern part of the Bay.
Many first time visitors are dumbfounded by the sheer immensity of the Acapulco clubs. Although clubs are always changing owners (and many times names), there are a multitude of magnificent discotheques, some of which have been there for quite a long time. And these clubs are not your typical dance halls. Like Ibiza, expect cool surprises, and things that you may have never seen before. As an example, you may not be used to seeing live mermaids swimming behind glass walls that overlook the dance floor.
The volume of people is also something spectacular. Acapulco nightlife is ruled by the major dance clubs, which welcome thousands of people through their doors each night. There are covers at most of these clubs. The cover charge is generally far less, if not completely free, for women. One way to get around paying steep prices at every place you go is to purchase one of the passes that grants entrance to a number of Acapulco clubs throughout the course of the night. There are deals that allow you to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $25 to get into several clubs. These passes lighten the financial load, a much needed break as you are likely to be ordering a lot of drinks in the heat of these pulsing clubs.
You will be able to find plenty of other things to do at night if yours is not the club scene. Many charming bars in Acapulco Mexico line the Zocalo in the northern part of the bay. Bars and cafes also stay open late and many offer an extensive selection of wine, beer, and liquor. You also can’t go wrong with a walk on the beach at night. If you are staying at one of the many luxury hotels or resorts, take advantage of access to a private beach for a romantic stroll by moonlight. Acapulco is truly a place that offers something for everyone when it comes to nightlife.
