    yeah mate i went to acapulco last year, and cancun a few times before that! I have to say Cancun is my preference, although each has its plus and minus points.

    Acupulco is more mexican and you get alot of mexican tourists going there (the women are quite fit :wink: ), so you get geniune food which is a big plus in my books, there is also alot of stuff to do after the clubs (strip clubs etc.)! The place is a bit more classy, they like you to dress up for clubs rather than turn up in flipflops and shorts which i never got used to in cancun. And the music is better as well, if you like it more trancy that is! Personally i had a great time over there, and I think everyone should give it a go BUT cancun is the kind of place you can go back to over and over, Acapulco isn't really and the women in Cancun are nicer and more friendly.

    Oh one massive plus in my books is that you dont have to tip every bloody barman you see in order to get a drink, you pretty much pay your $40 on the door and thats your lot!

    But like i said, Cancun is my preference.

    Studentcity isn't pumping one over another.........the switch of their ads every few weeks for featured destinations. The clubs in acapulco are a bit smaller than in cancun, which to me is a turn off. With that said, their ocean and beaches dont even compare to cancun, even with cancuns beaches getting smaller by the day, they still blow acapluco away. Stick with cancun!

    i used to go twice a year to Acapulco before living here... a plus is that is less expensive... its not like its cheap but its not as expensive as cancun, and yeah, there is more mexican tourism there at all times in the year... its easier and cheaper to drive to Acapulco than to Cancun...

    im going back to Acapulco in November... it seems i just cant dump it hahahaha

    its not really that big... but its def. bigger than cancun... the worst part of this is that you get to see like the poor part of Acapulco as soon as the hotel zone is over... its a really really poor city in fact :S

    I hear ALC, is a little skechier than Cancun. The Hotels are more up and down like apartment buildings, and the beaches aren't as nice. But I heard some clubs can be much cheaper than cancun?
