Acapulco is a resort town set on a large bay on Mexico’s Pacific coast—and Acapulco honeymoons are super-popular. The sandy beach is lined with high-rises and the city has the Sierra Madre del Sur mountains as its backdrop. The city was Mexico’s first resort city and as such was made famous as a destination for Hollywood elite in the 50s. Today the area is a bit overdeveloped but is still sought out by scores of visitors for its high-energy nightlife, beaches and golf. Acapulco has a well-developed tourist infrastructure with hotels for every budget, a range of delicious restaurant options and plenty of raucous clubs. You’ll also find ample opportunities to enjoy the natural surroundings with tropical beaches for every taste, jungle-green hills, and mountains surrounding the city.
Whether you're looking for relaxation or all-night partying, an Acapulco honeymoon is ideal for any couple.
When to Go
April, May and November are the best times for Acapulco honeymoons as you will find warm, sunny weather and great deals on hotels. The weather is dry from November - May and rainy from June to September.
