Acapulco is about twenty-something Maximo Gallardo (a role shared by Arrizon and Derbez) whose dream comes true when he is hired as a cabana boy at one of the most popular resorts in all of Acapulco.

Despite the lavish lifestyle presented by the resort, Maximo soon realizes that life there is complicated and includes navigating demanding clientele and a mercurial mentor. The series is told in Spanish and English and takes place in 1984, with Derbez narrating and playing the present-day version of the main character. The story is inspired by the film How to Be a Latin Lover.

We start by meeting the older version of Maximo, portrayed by Derbez, and as he regales his nephew with his history, beginning with the day that Maximo scored his dream job at the hottest resort in Acapulco, Las Colinas. But when Maximo arrives, he quickly realizes that there is a lot more to working as a cabana boy at the resort than he anticipated.
