Golfing while enjoying the amenities of Acapulco resorts is an unforgettable way to spend a Mexican vacation. One of Mexico's oldest beach resorts, Acapulco is located in Guerrero, and is a major seaport on the Pacific Coast. Popular with Hollywood stars and the elite, Acapulco has always been known as a premiere Mexican destination. It boasts some pretty amazing nightlife, and its natural beauty is nothing to sneeze at. But its golf is top notch, and keeps bringing golfing enthusiasts of all skill levels back year after year. Because Acapulco sits on a semi-circular bay, the views are one-of-a-kind, with several golf courses overlooking the coast or nestled further inland.
