If you only have a short time to explore Acapulco, don't miss a thing. See the entire city—both its historical streets and new sections—on a half-day guided tour. Contrast the new Punta Diamante with a native village that you visit that still lives the old ways. You'll also see the town of Tres Palas, known for its red brick factory plus a coconut plantation, shops, and a farmers market. You'll even see some high cliff divers—a signature of Acapulco.
