The New Acapulco Fun, Festive and Family-Friendly

R

emember when Acapulco was all about Carlos ‘n Charlies, windsurfing and thick gold chains proudly displayed on tanned, but hairy macho chests? Remember even further back when Acapulco was the go-to vacation and second home destination for the old Hollywood elite? (Think Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Dean Martin.) Well, hold on to your sunnies, because Acapulco has put on a brand new dress, and it is more beautiful, ecological, cultural, and family-friendly than ever before.

As you consider your next vacation with your S.O., girlfriends, or the fam, take a look at what Acapulco has to offer.

Family Looking for a quiet tropical getaway or some good fun-in-sun family time? Then plan to go during the week, as Friday to Sunday is when this city becomes busy with the weekend crowds from Mexico City. Book your room at the iconic Princess Mundo Imperial in the newer, more

residential and very safe Diamante section of the city, a bit south of the older sections of Acapulco and closer to the airport. The hotel has a gated entrance and is right on the beach with 5 pools (1 is saltwater), swim up bars, al fresco dining and you might even see peacocks, swans, a bilingual parrot named Lola (be sure to say hola to Lola - kids love chatting with her out near the pool) and even a lovely flamingo as you stroll around the lush and welltended grounds. The rooms are large, very comfortable, and have great views, and the staff and service are exceptional.

Perfect for beach bums, the Princess Mundo Imperial Hotel is the place to stay for a luxurious family vacation. 34 Texas Lifestyle Magazine | Special Travel Issue 2019-20
