Although Acapulco is a diverse city with the many benefits that large cities offer, still many areas in this place hold on to the feeling of a small town. For many people, the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Acapulco is the incredible boldness and the daring feats done by the famous La Quebrada cliff divers. These divers are definitely a ‘must see’ when visiting the place. These awesome exhibitions are presented everyday at 1:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, and 10:00 pm. The last show at night is the most watched because of the added torches that divers hold enhancing and adding a touch of drama to an already dramatic show.
Avenida Costera Miguel Aleman, which is the main street, is the true heartbeat of Acapulco. Locally know as just “The Costera”, going to almost anywhere in this city whether beaches, shopping, dining, or drinking, will come in contact with the Costera. Most of the city’s main attractions are also wither on or close to this busy street. This main street starts at the airport as Carretera Escenica or scenic highway, and then changes its name as it coils out of the hills to the south of the bay entering the city proper. The Costera’s activities are various and constant, making a lot of sections of the strip a ideal spot to have lunch or dinner or simply do some serious people watching.
Acapulco is a place not to be missed on your next vacation trip, imagine the place, plan that trip, and take that next adventure to this lively city.
