What people are saying about Acapulco

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 5 reviews

What fun! We were greeted at our hotel by a punctual, friendly guide named Javier. We told jokes and laughed along the drive to the peir. The Bonanza is a wonderful way to see the many beautiful sites of Acapulco. The crew would alternate from narration in English & Spanish for about ten minutes, then twenty minutes of live music. The waters were calm and there was plenty of dancing. My only complaint would be the lack of cerveza choice. There is only one choice and it isn’t great. But there are other options, so it wouldn’t justify a bad review. After the cruise, Javier welcomed us at the pier with a warm smile and a wave. He even turned up the music for us in his van as the women in my group requested. I highly recommend this tour!

Mario was a reliant guide during my stay in Acapulco. He explained a lot about the places we were visiting and helped with translation when needed. I also liked that he took pictures and shared them with me

It was very cool experience, they explain everything during the tour.

Was an amazing show, really enjoyed our time watching the divers.

great experience ! so fun ! highly recommend ! open bar!
