Located on the beautiful stretch of golden sand known as the Mexican Riviera, the unique, artistic beach town of Acapulco welcomes visitors from all over the world. Travelers come here to experience world class seafood restaurants, pristine Acapulco golf courses, and award winning Acapulco spas. They also come here to explore the area's stunning natural beauty. The beaches here are legendary, and there's no better place to relax and escape from the bustle of everyday life. The best way to experience everything Acapulco has to offer is by staying in a vacation rental of your own. A vacation rental is often less expensive than a hotel and offers better amenities as well as the space you need to store your beach gear.
Wake up each morning and enjoy breakfast on the balcony of your private villa as the sun rises. Then explore the colorful markets and side streets of downtown Acapulco. Stroll through the craft shops and art galleries, before heading for the beach. Go for a swim, charter a boat tour, go parasailing, or just enjoy the warm sun and relax in the sand. After a long day of site seeing and fun activities, go home to your home away from home and host a barbeque on your private deck.
