Attractions near the Crowne Plaza Acapulco
Watch cliff divers at La Quebrada
Along the Acapulco Coast you can find an impressive cliff area known as La Quebrada, where locals regularly jump into the crashing ocean waves around 35 metres below. It's free to visit this area and watch them perform their daredevil stunts at lunchtime, or you can make a night of it and visit in the evening to see the divers with a sunset backdrop and flaming torches lighting up the cliff.
The divers are all highly experienced professionals – performances of this kind have been organised by a club since 1934 – and it's recommended that you make this a spectator sport only. Performances are held every day at 1pm and hourly from 7.30pm to 10.30pm.
Drink and dine along La Costera
The main beachside road in Acapulco is known as La Costera, where you can find most of the city's restaurants, bars and nightlife. Thanks to their prime location, many of the eateries boast spectacular ocean views.
You're able to find authentic Mexican fare and excellent cuisine from all over the world along both sides of the strip. If you’re craving a taste of something familiar and comforting, don't fret; it's easy to find a number of food franchises from back home among the other dining options.
