This is a soda that is only produced in Guerrero State. When I told my friends in Mexico City that I was going to Acapulco, they asked me to bring them some bottles of Yoli.
Tastes very good, indeed!
*the bottles of glass must be returned to the place where you bought it, but you can take home the ones of plastic.
I don't remember exactly where...
I don't remember exactly where it was but it was on the main street with all the hotels...it's a bar shaped as a ship...very cool and lots of fun.
We also went to see a Mexican show and ate authentic mexican food...sure isn't Taco Bell!
Kick around, try anything that...
Kick around, try anything that looks good.
Prices are affordable, atmosphere is warm and it's an open air type overlooing the Bay. I had a meal at 'The Ranch' that was out of this world. It was a wonderful steak that had been skewered with a small piece of bamboo, then they rubbed peppercorns into the holes left by the bamboo, cooked to perfection.
Cliff Divers - Clavadistas
The "Clavadistas" are the guys that jump from those huge cliffs in Acapulco. They are the symbol of the city.
Their presentations happens the whole day long, from 10:00am (I guess) until 9:00 pm.
I do recommend watching their jumps AT NIGHT since they jump holding a torch. It's very interesting although you can't see them actually entering the water, but you realise it happens when the fire of the torch is extinguished!
If you want t good place to watch it, you may need to pay a little, speacially to watch it from restaurants, but if you want to watch it for free, you may just move a little further from the cliff, you'll see the clavadista entering the water just perfectly.
Since I was on a budget, I didn't even bother about asking the price to watch it from a closer place.
But be warned: the whole thing takes like 5 minutes only!
I spent 3 days in Acapulco during my 2 month long Mexico & Central America journey. This town was not on my original itinerary, but since Oaxaca was not considered safe at the time, I changed my route a little and ended up in Acapulco.
"Not much authentic here"
I haven't seen anything exceptionally interesting here. Acapulco is a big dirty city with small Zocalo and a 20 km long tourist zone. There are different kinds of beaches, more and less touristy ones, sand is fine and at least while I was there, water was warm and blurry.
The most attractive part of the town is the old part located close to Zocalo, on the hill from. There is a beautiful view on entire Acapulco bay from there. Cliffs located in the area are used for diving exhibitions.
