The 8-km (5-mi) stretch of Avenida Costera Miguel Alemán known as the Costera is lined with beachfront, side-by-side high-rise hotels. Most were built in the '60s and '70s, forever changing one of the world's most exquisite bays. There are hotels in all price categories; the cheaper properties are on the north side of the avenue. Stay here if you want to be in the middle of the action, surrounded by restaurants, bars, discos, shops, malls, and food stores. For cheap transportation along the Costera, simply jump on one of the local buses that chug up and down the strip (a ride costs 4.50 pesos), or flag one of the many taxis.

Another '50s Hollywood hangout, El Mirador exudes nostalgia, with white walls, red-tile roofs, and hand-carved Mexican furnishings. It's on a hill with views of Bahía de Acapulco and La Quebrada, where the cliff divers perform. Many suites have refrigerators, hot tubs, and ocean vistas.
