The cliff divers and nightlife of Acapulco

The cliff divers and nightlife of Acapulco

Everybody knows Acapulco. From questionable 1980s songs about going loco there, to Elvis bossa nova-ing with Ursula Andress, to the cliff divers that make any male looking on feel that little bit inadequate by comparison – this is a town that revels in myth and retro glamour, and seduces with its intoxicating spirit. The town’s at its best when the sun goes down – nightlife throbs well into the small hours here. Some of Mexico’s best food invites travellers, and then it’s time to dust down your best clothes and try a bit of bossa nova yourself - as the King himself crooned, you can’t say no to Acapulco.
