Just mentioning the word “Acapulco” brings to mind the glamour of the celebrity jetsetters who, for years, have adopted this world-class resort as their preferred vacation playground. Enjoy the glamour, the entertainment, the exotica of this wonderful year-round place for playing and peace along the beautiful crescent shore, like a necklace on the famed bay — which years ago was an important trading empire on the coast of western Mexico.
WIVC has duplicated this playground with an on-the-beach resort of comfort and caring. High-rise apartments overlook the swimming pool, the decks, the best hamburgers-and Margaritas-ever snack bar, and the frontage beach with chaises and palapas which sit you so close to the water, you want to rush in. For a little variety, stroll along the beach and land yourself in one of the freshly caught shrimp and fish restaurants that we could never duplicate at home. Vibrancy is the name of the game, where guests gather daily in the spacious lobby for meeting and greeting.
Of course, there are the traditional sites such as the world-famous La Quebrada, where fearless divers plunge 136 feet from rugged cliffs into a perilous, narrow cove. Their nighttime antics are especially spectacular. And, there IS a vibrant nightlife up and down the main drag — so if you aim to party, this is the place to be. A visit to the world-famous Las Brisas (pink Jeeps) is always worth a visit, and the quartz shrine above is awe-inspiring. Bring only your beach clothes and a glitzy costume or two, because Acapulco is the real glam-resort … and you’ll want to participate in all that matters.
