Spring Break Vacations in Acapulco, Mexico
It feels like spring break in Acapulco year-round, but during March the city transforms into party paradise.
The Golden Zone along the Costera is alive with students and just about everyone else enjoying their
break in Acapulco. Along with Easter and the week after Christmas, spring is the high season for vacations in Acapulco. The
beaches and hotels are full of hungover gringos and gringas
during the day and the bars and discos are packed
with a melting pot of foreigners and locals every night. All night.
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.
