I am not sure what you are looking for?
Shopping? sites?
The fort is right across the road from the port
The Cliff divers are a taxi ride away other sites are spread out.
I would take a tour ...private or via the ship to get the best overview of Acapulco.

First Welcome to Cruise Chat.
There is alot to do from the dock area as the others have said. However the Like Lisa said the Divers and big tours area away from the dock. IMHO the venders at this dock were very pushy/aggressive. There is a building with a few approved venders inside a gate area, but once outside the fence...they are very aggressive. Once in town or away from this area if seemed better to us. Also note there is a chance you will be tender in the port. When are you going, and have fun.

Thanks Penny, I bet it showed up a few times.
Here is a night Photo taken from my balcony.

A few shots of the venders outside the fence area.


And some of the shops on the inside of the fence.




BTW we felt the best shopping was in Zihuatenejo/Iztapa
Here is the beginning of their shopping.
