From the pier, travel along the great scenic highway Costera Miguel Aleman. Bordered by the blue Pacific, the route not only affords wonderful views, it also takes you past fashionable boutiques, fine restaurants, popular discos and luxury hotels.

Pause at a vantage point to take in the beautiful panorama before passing through Las Brisas residential area. Soon you will reach what is called the Diamond Zone, the "new" Acapulco that is home to a wide beach and an array of high-end apartments and condominiums.

After passing Puerto Marques Bay and the Black Lagoon, where the first Tarzan movie was filmed, your scenic introduction continues as you journey along the Costera Palmas and past two magnificent hotels: The Mayan Palace, and the stunning Acapulco Princess Hotel. Resembling an Aztec pyramid, the Acapulco Princess Hotel is an architectural marvel.

Having appreciated the structures designed by humankind, next discover the works of nature with your drive through the countryside and arrival at Elcano Diamante Beach Club. Here you will release baby turtles into the ocean. An endangered species, the marine turtle depends on watchful eyes such as yours to ensure they reach the water's edge.

Afterward, enjoy provided refreshments and beverages.

With a feeling of wonder and satisfaction, return to your Crystal ship.
