"La Fuerte," as it is referred to in town, is the main historical monument in Acapulco and the most important maritime fort along the Pacific coast. Acapulco´s first claim to fame was for being the port for the Nao de China (also known as the Manila Galleon) that brought splendid goods from the Orient, which were then transferred to Veracruz and sent to Europe. Here you will be greeted by the carriage of William of Holland which made its way from Veracruz in the 1840s, replicas of galleons, fine silks, treasure chests and plentiful models. Visitors will also find pre-conquest history, with faces and tools from La Sabana river area, Mezcala faces for the dead, a Mexica altar, information on wall paintings from nearby Pie de la Cuesta and a general insight into Guerrero state´s pre-Hispanic sites. Nautical fans will be in paradise with probes, hour glasses, sextants, compasses, hoists and marine astrolabes. These compete with military trappings, armor and shields, and delicate, ancient flags and standards. The displays are beautifully conceived, and attentive visitors will note how Mexican artists began to reproduce stylized decorations in their own crafts, with examples from Puebla´s talavera pottery, ceramics from Tonalá, Jalisco, and lacquered furniture from Uruapan and Pátzcuaro, Michoacán. Other influences extend from dress (such as the gaudy, frilly China Poblana costume) to the spread of produce like rice, mangos, pepper and cinnamon. read more about Fort of San Diego

  • Acapulco, 39300

Refurbished about ten years ago, Acapulco's historic central square is home to the attractive old cathedral (a new one is being built) where worshippers and beggars wander in and out continually. Shady and squawking with jays (watch out for getting pooped on), this is a great spot for an hour's people-watching, from the balloon and cotton-candy sellers to scrawny old guys shining shoes. Some craft shops around sell trinkets, souvenirs, shawls and summery dresses, and religious gift shops sport doleful statues of Jesus, Mary and saints. There is a bank and good shoe shop on the corner and at the back a wide range of internet cafes, many open late. The Zócalo is over the road from the bay, and enjoying an ice-cream on the Malecón (the same seafront road that really is called Costera Miguel Alemán) while watching the boats adds to the pleasure of a leisurely visit. read more about Zócalo (El)

For a long time this was the best restaurant in Acapulco for romantic atmosphere, style, sea views and cuisine and it still is among the top in the Las Brisas area. Decor is white and fresh, with natural materials (wood and thatch, stone and pebbles) without being rustic. It tends to be business lunches at around 2 to 4 pm and more romantic dining or larger groups in the evenings, when the place flickers with candles. It is a favorite with Acapulco's political and business classes, so you can rest assured its dishes (mostly international fare, with a touch of Mediterranean) and prices are not just aimed at tourists. The starters are very good and of the main courses the fish and seafood dishes tend to be the best options. Dress on the formal side. read more about Kookaburra

A story unto itself, as told in its stylish anniversary book, this pink and white citadel on a hill overlooking the bay has been home to everyone who was anyone - from the astronauts who first landed on the moon to Madonna. Guests are taken in cute jeeps to their own casita, each with private pool sprinkled with hibiscus flowers. No detail is spared (flat screen TVs, DVDs) and the soft sheets deserve special mention along with the world-famous breakfasts that are delivered to a dumb waiter at the time you appoint. It is a winner for honeymooners, but also a favorite with businessmen, despite (or could it be because of?) the girly colors. read more about Hotel Las Brisas
