Acapulco Shore is a Mexican reality television series broadcast on MTV Latin America. It premiered on September 27, 2014 and is the Mexican adaptation of the American show Jersey Shore (TV series).[1] It follows the same format as the British (Geordie Shore) and Spanish (Gandía Shore) versions.[2] The show follows the lives of eight participants who live in Acapulco, Mexico. The first season reached 7.2 million people in the Latin American region and was renewed for a second season, with the premiere airing on MTV on May 19, 2015. The third season premiered on May 17, 2016.


Due to the success of the format in the American version Jersey Shore, and the great acceptance of the British version Geordie Shore, MTV Latin America decided to realize its own version of the show together with the producer Litopos Producciones in charge of the producer Carlos Carrera. "We trust that the Latin American version of the format will entertain and catch the audience in the same way as its previous versions around the world." Maria Iregui, MTVLA manager, said in a press release. Meanwhile, Eduardo Lebrija, vice president general of Viacom International Media Networks, said: "We are very proud to announce Acapulco as the production center for the first Mexican version of the Shore franchise, the energy of this place and its vibrant social life. Day and night make the perfect combination for the series "

First it was Jersey Shore, then continued with Geordie Shore and Gandia Shore. Now the Mexican season is under the creative supervision of Iregui and Federico Cuervo. MTV Latin America made the casting in March 2014 and only asked to attend the casting "if you consider yourself attractive and do not be afraid of cameras."

The production had agreements with the emblematic ports of the port "they simply said today I want to go to Baby (Baby'O), and then we went and we saw how it is. They have very adverse conditions, because you have 100 people in a den and they are not going to be limited if there is a camera or not, "added the producer, adding that a den were going to about 40 people.
