Acapulco + El Morro
Mexico's insider take:

Hollywood heroes like John Wayne and Errol Flynn made Acapulco's fishing grounds famous in the 1940s. Back in those days, the hefty sailfish and marlin caught here were usually mounted on walls; nowadays, catch-and-release is just as common. More sedentary pursuits like sunbathing and cocktail-houring have since eclipsed fishing as the major draws here, but plenty of sleek day-trip boats still await anglers in Old Acapulco's marina. Fish-R-Us has several specially equipped yachts and a variety of trips to choose from—many of which stop on their way back to port to watch the cliff divers (Costera Alemán 100; 52-744-482-8282).—Maribeth Mellin
