Car Hire Acapulco Airport - Helpful Guide

  • The airport in Acapulco is officially known as General Juan N. Álvarez International Airport. IATA Code: ACA

Signposting and Roads:

  • Signposting around the airport and major roads is generally clear and often bilingual (Spanish and English), especially around tourist areas.
  • The main road leading from the airport is the "Carretera Escénica" or the "Scenic Highway", which takes you north towards the main bay area of Acapulco. It's about a 30-minute drive (around 25-30 km) to reach the main bay area from the airport.

Safety:

  • In recent years, Acapulco has faced some security challenges. It's advised to drive during daylight hours and stick to major roads. Always park in well-lit, secure areas and avoid isolated regions.
  • It's also wise to check current travel advisories and consult with your car rental agency for any specific recommendations or areas to avoid.

Tolls:

  • While the main road from the airport to the central part of Acapulco doesn't have tolls, other highways leading out of Acapulco might. It's a good idea to have some cash in Mexican pesos for any tolls you might encounter on longer drives.

Rental Car Checks:

  1. Documentation: Ensure you have your driver's license, passport, car booking voucher and any other required documentation.
  2. Insurance: Mexico has specific insurance requirements. Check with your rental agency about mandatory insurance and consider additional coverage for peace of mind.
  3. Vehicle Inspection: Before leaving the rental lot, do a thorough inspection of the vehicle. Note any existing damage, check tire condition, and ensure that all lights and signals work. Its a good idea to take photographs.
  4. Fuel Type: Confirm the type of fuel the car uses (regular unleaded, premium, or diesel) to avoid any confusion at gas stations.

Fuel Stations:

  • Fuel stations, known as "gasolineras," are fairly common around Acapulco. Pemex is the predominant gas station brand in Mexico. In touristy areas, you'll also find other international brands.
  • Remember that fuel prices are in liters, not gallons.
  • Many gas stations are full-service, so an attendant will pump the gas for you. It's customary to tip the attendant a few pesos, especially if they check tire pressure or clean the windshield.

In summary, driving from Acapulco Airport is straightforward, with clear roads leading to the main tourist areas. However, always be safety-conscious, and familiarize yourself with local driving customs and regulations.
