This week we’re showing you how to enjoy the perfect summer vacation with a trip to Acapulco, Mexico!

Mexico is not only the perfect romantic getaway, but it also is a great vacation for families as well. Great restaurants, fun outdoors adventures, activities, golf, beautiful resorts and amazing beaches make this a favorite among visitors. What makes Acapulco so special is its origins from a small village into one of the most beautiful Mexican vacation destinations in the country. Acapulco’s proximity to the Sierra Madre Mountains makes it an excellent place to enjoy an adventuresome afternoon with your family or a gorgeous cliff side sunset for couples. The Pacific Ocean waters stay cool throughout the year but visitors are almost guaranteed to get nothing but sun. The size of this Mexican city is big enough to ensure that you won’t get bored and its night life is legendary, but isn’t difficult to manage.
