Dining in Acapulco

Naturally, Acapulco has delicious authentic Mexican food, but that’s not all that is offered. International cuisine can also be enjoyed from Italy, American and the Mediterranean.

Dining venues in Acapulco can range from casual and friendly to elegant fine dining restaurants.

With the year around warm weather, open-air taco huts and thatched roof burger joints are very popular.

The majority of restaurants catering to visitors will purify drinking water and cooking water. It is sensible to order bottled water and soft drinks and cocktails without ice in order to avoid any unwanted parasites.
