Acapulco has been known as one of Mexico’s most popular beach resorts over the years. It’s the place where Elizabeth Taylor once got married and John and Jackie Kennedy spent their honeymoon in the 1950s.
But this isn’t your father’s Acapulco.
If you are heading to Acapulco for a little rest and relaxation – or maybe a wedding and a honeymoon – head on over to these happening hot spots when you are done with your day in the sun.
Palladium: The Palladium is located on Las Brisas Hillside, and towers over all other venues in Acapulco. The view from inside makes you feel like you are being suspended in midair. The 160-foot glass windows provide a spectacular view of Acapulco bay. Get your dancing shoes on and listen to the sounds of the famous DJs that stop by and spin some tunes, including Danny Tenaglia, Nick Warren and Steve Lawler. This is an incredibly popular, and sometimes incredibly crowded, venue, so be sure to have a back-up plan if you are heading out for some nighttime adventures.
