The port of Acapulco where cruise ships such as Carnival dock
Acapulco resorts offer bungee jumping, scuba diving, parasailing, and partying on Pacific Coast Beaches. Acapulco was once a quiet resort on Mexico's Pacific Coast where John Wayne, Johnny Wiesmuller (Tarzan), and other Hollywood stars escaped to the Flamingo Hotel. (Los Flamingos)
Now Acapulco's resorts and high-rise hotels offer the all night party scene to attract young visitors for bungee jumping, scuba diving, parasailing, and Spring Break partying

Acapulco makes an ideal beach resort vacation year round.
There may be two seasons when the resort is most crowded. Christmas and Easter are traditional travel holidays for Mexican families and the proximity of Mexico City to Acapulco ( 240 miles ) means that the beach resorts could be crowded on these two holiday weeks. Mid July into the end of August can also be times of travel for Mexico City vacationers.
December through April is high season in Acapulco.
The weather in Acapulco is humid and warmest June through September. July and August bring rain showers, high humidity, and 90 degree days.
Year round temperatures average 85f days, 75f nights. Showers could come in any month but will be of short duration. Hurricane season runs August to December.
Spring break might be in your planning. Acapulco allows 18 year olds to drink alcohol and the resorts have offered all inclusive packages including performance groups that attract US Spring breakers, usually in late February and all of March.
November through May are ideal months for a beach vacation
