The Acapulco Marina, with its big white lighthouse, is a pleasant local landmark that is easy to find. Located in traditional Acapulco, the Marina has been a safe haven to sailors from around the world for centuries. This natural harbor has invited sailors home since the time of Magellan. The Marina accommodates as many as 150 vessels. Slip rates are about $6 pesos per foot per day (or $10 more or less for a 20-foot boat). Services include 110/220 volt power, showers, restaurants, ice, water, and help with customs documents.
The Marina welcomes tiny sailboats and huge yachts, some of which anchor offshore in the calm water nearby. For generations, the Yacht Club, which is located by the Marina, has been a favorite spot for the world’s well-heeled sailors. Anyone hoping to go on a boat tour or a deep sea fishing trip will need to come down to the Marina. Even if that is not your plan, dropping by the Marina just to see it is a worthwhile thing to do.
