Spring Break Vacations in Acapulco, Mexico

Spring Break, Acapulco   Unlike other resort towns in Mexico, Acapulco is a great destination to enjoy your spring break in the company of the local Mexican people. So, it feels more exotic and more like Mexico than destinations where 90% of the people are foreigners. If an ordinary destination is what you want, you might as well stay in your own country.
