Spring Break in Acapulco
Those planning to join the tens of thousands of spring breakers heading to Acapulco each year should plan as far ahead as possible.

If you’re not looking for all-night parties and raucous crowds, it’s worth keeping Spring Break in mind as a time NOT to visit Acapulco. For a quieter, less crowded experience of the city, think about a trip in the Fall.
