Acapulco Bay – Guerrero, Mexico

Among the Most Romantic Views on Earth

Much of Acapulco’s sultry reputation as Hollywood’s south-of-the-border beach club has been shattered by a groundswell of tourism, but the heart-stopping beauty of the bay is eternal. With physical endowments that have often been compared to those of Rio de Janeiro, Acapulco also features unbeatable sunsets over its 7-mile horseshoe-shaped bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Avoid the package tourists and revel in unparalleled water views by checking in at the Hotel Las Brisas, the leg­endary hilltop grande dame that has shared Acapulco’s fame and high profile for more than three decades. Every day is a honeymoon here: Secluded fuchsia- and bougainvillea-draped casitas boast pri­vate pools filled with floating hibis­cus flowers and breathtaking views of the bay. The hotels Bella Vista alfresco restaurant is aptly named.

Most guests never leave Las Brisas’s 750 tropical acres on the lush moun­tainside, but those who do jump in one of the hotel’s hallmark pink-and-white-striped jeeps and head 6 miles north to the nearby fishing village of Pie de la Cuesta, a laid-back spot where a hammock and the roar of the surf evoke a long-ago Acapulco.
