tourist market and a desire for their cooking to gain international recognition.
For people who relish fine food, Acapulco won't dis- appoint. The local

The nightlife in Acapulco is legendary.
Happy hour begins well before sunset, perhaps on a sunset cruise as you
watch night settle over the harbor. Many hotels offer theme parties where
you can dance, eat, play games, and listen to live music. There are tons
of discos in the city, most of which are open every day of the year.
Nothing is spared on their design. Another popular night activity takes
place at La Quebrada, where you can dine and drink as you watch the famous
cliff divers. There are four shows every evening, but you should arrive
early to get a good seat.
