I visited Acapulco twice with several friends during my youthful days. Once in 1970 when we drove to Laredo, parked my car in a garage, took a taxi to the Nuevo Laredo airport where we flew to Mexico City for a two-day stay visiting the Pyramid of the Sun, Maximilian Castle, and the National Anthropology Museum. We then caught a... 更多
Lots of shops and cool things to see. Also some good authentic food. We went to nacho libre wrestling and flee market. We felt safe with all the police around.
For 25 years we used to enjoy going to the Zocalo in the evenings to watch the old men playing checkers, and the children running around getting to know each other, the parents gossiping.

The old Acapulco Tour was interesting and glad we went, but the number of army personnel and machine guns in the streets along with the obvious poverty made us a little nervous. Fortunately, we had engaged a private driver for the whole week and felt safe in his care.

If you enjoy the history of a place and have interest in the architecture of the area, this tour is for you. So much to see and beautiful scenery, you will really enjoy this tour.
We had a great tour of Old Acapulco. Sebastian Hernandez really knows all the details and gives historical background.
If you like hustle and bustle this is your spot. Imagining what once was is part of the charm. mid-century houses, some in a state of disrepair block the best views of the sea. Lots of locals from all social strata enjoying their city with the international and Mexican tourists. Always fun to see multigenerational families on an outing.
Night and day are very different experiences, lots of people all the time, shops and vendors by day, party at night. Thanks to all the Police presence we felt safe all the time. They even had armed guards at the gas stations. We didn't buy much as most of the items for sale are junk ( not all) be prepared... 更多
