La Costera’s Nightlife & Bars
If the days are always full of activities, Acapulco’s nightlife offers no rest. Nightlife begins each evening when the Costera is lit up with all the colorful signs and people anxious to have fun. The emotion of Acapulco’s legendary nightlife is what sets Acapulco apart from other tourist destinations. To begin with, the natural beauty of this place, an incredible view of the bay with its lights twinkling in the dark from one end of the bay to the other, and then the action! The magical atmosphere that you can feel in the air. The sounds of the night mix with the different types of music that escapes from the many bars and restaurants located throughout the city. Also check out the La Quebrada cliff divers close to the city center. Even at night they make the perilous dive from the jagged cliffs that has thrilled tourists for more than 40 years.
Acapulco’s shopping centers, boutiques and markets are what make it almost impossible to resist leaving without buying souvenirs and gifts for envious friends and family back home. There is an astonishing variety of handicrafts such as exquisite articles of leather, hand-woven sarapes, silver items, beachwear and delicious sweets and authentic foods. Acapulco also has several shopping centers, such as the Gran Plaza, Plaza Bahia and Oceanic 2000, where you can find sophisticated boutiques selling well-known designer clothing, an infinite variety of leather goods of excellent quality, and beautiful gold and silver jewelry.
