Observatory

We were headed to tour the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza from the beach town of Playa del Carmen.

Acapulco’s main thoroughfare and party central is Costera Miguel Aleman, but the locals know and love it as simply “La Costera,” which is essentially a road that winds around the long and beautiful bay of Acapulco.

If you’re in Acapulco and looking for something to explore, or a fun night out on the town – you’re looking for some time spent on La Costera.
