The go-to place for a quick run in the center of Acapulco is Parque Papagayo, located between Av Cuauhtémoc and Playa Papagayo. This bustling park features snack stands, a water park, and a pond among other amenities. There is no real course for running, nor is there a designated track, but runners can easily put in a couple of laps around the park. A lap around the central path is about 1 km. Combine it with a run on the beach or the Malecón de Acapulco (whose eastern end is near Parque Papagayo) for more distance.
