Forget Tijuana or Cancun, Guerrero is the real party destination in Mexico. The state is home to Acapulco, which was graced by Elvis Presley in the 1963 beach romp Fun in Acapulco, where he tussled with lifeguards and took a job as a hotel crooner.

And about 100 miles up Guerrero's coast, you'll come across the seaside town of Zihuatanejo. Sound familiar? It's the symbolism-heavy place Andy Dufrense dreamt about for nearly two decades in The Shawshank Redemption.
