This is supposedly the centre of town and it takes around 20 minutes to walk from the cruise ship terminal. You cannot miss the cathedral. When we were there the police band were playing. I was not sure whether to be reassured that all the...More

There is a cathedral, which can't be seen from distance as there are so many trees covering it. Few, very few restaurants but so many street sellers. Its crowded with people selling the regular non-interesting things

Great way to get a sense of the local culture. Local vendors selling all sorts of goods and great place to just sit and get a feel for Acapulco.

The zocalo is a central place where you can go for shopping, food, buy jewells and all kind of stuf. There's always show with clowns and jugglers. The Italian restaurant serves quality food, get there early at dinner because there is always a line up.
