More about El Mirador Acapulco Hotel

THE CLAVADISTAS/THE CLIFF DIVERS

by travelgourmet

Just outside the town of Acapulco on the hillside sits the La Perla Restaurant at the El Mirador Acapulco Hotel. The buffet is decent, but the view is why you have come here. Below sits a cliff, with four brave men, lining up to dive into the churning ocean water below. These Clavadistas of La Quebrada put on a diving show 5 times a day: 12:45 pm, 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm, 9:30 pm, and 10:30 pm.

The dive is into a narrow, rocky channel and they must time the dive with the incoming waves to have enough water to leap into without hitting the bottom. They make it look easy, but it is very scary. muy macho, these fellows.

Cities I

by karakal73

Taxco:
The old silver-mining town of Taxco, 180km (112mi) southwest of Mexico City, is a gorgeous colonial antique, and one of the most picturesque and pleasant places in Mexico. It clings to a steep hillside, has labyrinthine narrow cobbled streets, engagingly well-worn buildings and delightful plazas. The entire town has been declared a national historic monument.

Acapulco:
The first and most famous of the resort cities on Mexico's Pacific coast was once the New World's gateway to the Orient, but today it's a fast-growing city of well over a million inhabitants with a schizophrenic mixture of high-rise hotels, designer shopping plazas and tri-lingual restaurants shielding a hidden city of auto-parts stores, polluted rivers and crowded apartments. The city is definitely not everyone's idea of fun, but most visitors to Acapulco are happy to laze on the city's numerous beaches, which offer equipment for just about every sport that can be done on or under the water.

The famous cliff divers of La Quebrada have been amazing visitors since the 1930s with their graceful finesse as they dive from the seemingly suicidal height of 45m (148ft) into a narrow crevasse, which appears to contain only enough water to wash their feet. Not surprisingly, the divers pray at a small shrine before flinging themselves into the void. You can get a great view of the divers from the bar of the El Mirador Hotel. For less crowded beaches, try the Pie de la Cuesta, 8km (5mi) northwest of the city center, which is a good alternative to the glitz of the city. There are great views of Acapulco's bay on the road to Puerto Marqués, 18km (11mi) southeast of the city. Just south of the Peninsula de las Playas is the so-called underwater shrine, a submerged bronze statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

I need charter buses in Acapulco and A restaurant large enough to seat 200-250

by Seana25

I am organizing a large group to Acapulco (staying at the Fairmont Princess) in January and I need to find a charter compnay to bring all 250 people from the airport to the hotel and back again. I really want the large coaches and not the vans.
I also am also looking for a fun restaurant that will seat between 200 and 250 people. I don't want a hotel restaurnt, I want to get the group out of the hotel for a night.

I think your best contact for the transportation will come from the concierge at the Princess (for the trip from the airport to the hotel, and from the hotel to your restaurant for dinner). And the concierge, once again, will be a great source of information about a restaurant/venue that'll be able to accommodate your dinner outing (a bit larger than most places will be accommodate).

One thought: "La Perla Restaurant" in Hotel El Mirador - overlooking the cliff divers might make a good dinner spot. There's both indoor and outdoor seating on terraces, and it's a large place. Your group can eat and watch the divers - a meal and entertainment! I've not been impressed with the food there, but you could have them prepare a special buffet for you - given the size of the group.

Also, either Beto's or Paradise on Playa Condesa might be able to accommodate you - depending upon just when in the evening you'd like to go. Both have beach-level dining areas - and terraced areas overlooking the bay (which may be slightly smaller than your group needs).

There are other possibilities, I'm certain.

By the way, the Princess has been upgrading its common areas over the summer - major improvements to the golf course, improvements to the swimming pools/wet areas, improvements to restaurants, etc.

Travel Tips for Acapulco

Healthy food that taste good

by midnight_mike about 100% Natural

As the name indicates, everything on the menu is natural. Unlike other healthy food, everything here tastes really good. There are several locations throughout Acapulco, all within a short distance from the major hotels. This is a great spot to go for breakfast after a long night of drinking. The natural juices, which are made from scratch, are the best thing on the menu.

"Vacaciones"

Carmen, the kids and I went for our B-days, first time visiting Acapulco and it was fun, the local vendors at the beach were however very aggressive, got to look out for those guys and avoid them, but we did have a great time however
