The aging CICI Water Park is a much-loved Acapulco institution, geared toward family fun with attractions for all ages. The centerpiece of the park is the enormous wave pool, which you can enjoy with your own water toys, or those that can be rented right here. Several waterslides and other rides offer other options to make a splash, while smaller kids have their own pool, with mellower slides.
The most popular attractions are the dolphin and sea lion shows, held throughout the day. Want to get a little closer? The park also offers the option of swimming with dolphins, for an extra fee.
CICI Water Park is located right on La Costera, in the center of downtown Acapulco. It's walking distance from most hotels, but if you're staying farther up or down the beach, catch any La Costera bus plying the coastal highway.
If you decide to swim with the dolphins, the day's park admission is included. Be sure to show up to the saltwater tanks a little early, so you'll be able to shower away your sunscreen and other chemicals before your scheduled hour begins.
