Some claim the world’s first clubs originated in Acapulco, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true. Since every time I’ve visited Acapulco it’s been with family and to visit family, the closest I’ve come to the bars, clubs and nightlife scene is passing Baby’O in the car. That, and meeting boys at the pool or beach during the day and having them invite me out with them later to El Alebrije — the largest club in Acapulco – which, understandably, Mom and Dad weren’t down with that, or taking a stroll at night along La Costera near hotel past bar after bar (one of which had a bungee jump).
Next time I’m back in Acapulco, I’ll definitely be doing some nightclub research. It’s long overdue!
For now, I can tell you the La Quebrada Cliff Divers (click link for a full writeup!) are a must-see. At night they sometimes dive with torches…
