The circular bay around Acapulco has one of the world's best natural harbors. It was discovered by the explorer Hernan Cortes in 1531. Almost two decades later, the town Acapulco was founded, and for many years it served as an important port for Spanish colonial ships - sailing with cargo to and from China and the Philippines.
Today, Acapulco is best known for being a lively city with a vibrant nightlife and a wide selection of bars, restaurants and discos. Not long ago, before the destinations like Cancun and Ixtapa were there, Acapulco was the main tourist destination in Mexico among the rich and famous - such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor and John F. Kennedy.
