Acapulco Diamante - Sun, Sea and Condos
Acapulco Diamante is many things, but in one word, it's exclusive. Acapulco Diamante is what you might call “New Acapulco.” It's a series of new luxury real estate developments and gated-communities, which stretch from Puerto Marques to the airport.
Acapulco Diamante is one of Acapulco's most beautiful regions, encompassing some of the area's best beaches, top luxury resort hotels, and the wealthiest neighborhoods. With its lush green mountains, million dollar houses, beautiful beaches, elegant shopping malls and peace and quiet, it reminds one vaguely of Orange County, California, but transferred thousands of miles down the Pacific Coast. In Acapulco Diamante it is easy to forget that you're really in Mexico. This is the place where people go to escape the city - whether the city in question is old Acapulco, Mexico City, Los Angeles or New York.
Inside of Acapulco Diamante you can find a couple of traditional areas, including small villages, that provide a contrast with the “in-your-face” commercialism and hustle of the hotel zone.
The Diamante area offers some of the best of Acapulco: The five-star hotels are The Fairmont Acapulco Princess, Fairmont Pierre Marques, the Fairmont Pearl, the Mayan Palace, Las Brisas, La Quinta Real, Park Royal, and the Camino Real. The beautiful Puerto Marques is on the way, as well as one of Acapulco's most active and fashionable beaches, Playa Revolcadero. Beyond, you can enjoy the rustic, tropical delights of Barra Vieja and Tres Palos Lagoon.
No matter what your interests, if you want to be able to say that you really know Acapulco, you should take a day to explore Acapulco Diamante.
