We got off the ship and walked to the Market place. We felt safe, because a local " chamber of commerce-guide" walked with us and gave us information. He exchanged our dollars for pesos for purchases in the local stores and he escorted us back to the street leading back to the ship. We gave him a tip for his service. Read Less

Norwegian substituted this port for Costa Rica only three weeks out from the cruise date, which angered many cruisers. Cruise ships only recently started coming back to Acapulco as it had been too dangerous in the past. We walked around the old town - only thing worth seeing is the fort (10 minutes walk from the cruise terminal). We went back to the ship for lunch and in the afternoon walked in the opposite direction to the beach areas. We found a nice bar with a happy hour and view of the beach - more enjoyable, and lots cheaper than drinking on the ship. Read Less

First time in Acapulco. We were harassed the moment we came out of the port by vendors that wanted us to take their taxi tours. One man told us he was a government tourist guide and only wanted to help but as he followed us for two blocks it was apparent he wanted to sell us a 2 hour taxi ride to John Wayne's former home, etc. He walked off when it was apparent to him we weren't buying. I've read Acapulco has worked to improve their crime and drug reputation and we didn't feel unsafe on our brief walk along the waterfront but trash was everywhere and we soon turned back. This city didn't compare favourably with Mazatlan or Cabo San Lucas. Read Less

Nice 3 hour tour of the city. Same route as NCL offered. Better price, $30./person with tip. Pricrs posted just as you walk out of the port. Very safe and informative. Beautiful city!

Knowledgeable guide. Enjoyed the Cliff Divers and highlights of the city. Tax free shopping was just right.

The fort across from the dock is interesting. Since we didn't book an excursion, we walked around a bit. Have seen the cliff divers before, so that wasn't an option. Lots of aggressive vendors--always a treat in Mexico.
