For budget travelers, it is possible to put together cheap Acapulco vacations if you plan in advance and do your best to avoid booking your travel during the busiest times of the year (spring break and winter).

The nightlife scene in Acapulco is another main reason why this particular city has always been such a popular hot spot.

Now Acapulco features some of the most amazing clubs you will find anywhere in the country. Huge, multi-tier dance clubs where the music pulses into the early morning hours are ubiquitous in Acapulco. Your best bet is to purchase a pass for a one-time cost that gets you into a host of clubs for the night if you plan on club hopping for the evening.

Dining is also plentiful in Acapulco. You can find many traditional Mexican restaurants that serve authentic fare, as well as a variety of enviable seafood restaurants located up and down the coast. Shopping can be found along the Malecon, all throughout old Acapulco near the Zocalo, and all over the newer developments in the southern portion of the Bay.

Other activities people enjoy on Acapulco vacations include swims with dolphins, glass-bottom tours of the Bay of Acapulco, and watching the cliff diving performance at La Quebrada.
