More about El Presidente Acapulco Hotel

Ixtapa Mexico

by Kodi01

"Be prepared for the real experience of Mexico"

Flying into Zihuatenao to get to Ixtapa was the MOST beautiful site. You have to take the old bus to get to Ixtapa.

I chose Ixtapa based on recommendations from friends that this is the "real Mexico" not commercialized like Cancun.

There are lots of natives sell sterling silver jewelryon the beach, which is VERY good prices, just watch out and look for the real stamping, sometimes they are not real silver.

"El Presidente Hotel"

This was a 4 star hotel and they laid flowers petals on the pillow in a heart shape.

Isla Cozumel

by jake22

"General"

I have been visiting Cozumel at least annually since 1984 and have watched it growing up, from a sleepy Mexican town where divers were the majority of visitors with maybe 1 or 2 cruise ships a week to a busy tourist town where there are usually 3 to 6 cruise ships are docked daily, with tourists thronging the waterfront and the plaza looking for bargains. We have watched it through 3 hurricanes and watched it rebuild. But the divers who we dive with still enjoy the old flavor by staying in Mexican hotels and eating in the Mexican style and diving from an older boat which affords time to enjoy the scene.

"First day of diving"

OUR FIRST DIVE OF THE 2ND DAY WAS CEDRAL WALL WHICH FEATURED A MULTITUDE OF QUEEN, FRENCH AND GREY ANGELFISH. THE CURRENT WAS STRONG (3 TO 4 KNOT) AMD CARRIED THE GROUP NORTH WITH SOME OF THE DIVERS ACTING AS BIRDS WITH THEIR ARMS OUTSTRETCHED. WE STAYED APPROXIMATELY 40 MINUTES AT APPROX. 80 FEET.

OUR SECOND DIVE WAS ON LAS PALMAS, WHICH IS A NEW REEF FOR ME. IT IS LOCATED A LITTLE SOUTH OF THE EL PRESIDENTE HOTEL. IT IS LOW HILLY TYPE REEF WHERE FISH AND WILDLIFE ABOUND. TODAY THERE WAS A SOUTH CURRENT ABOUT 2 KNOTS FOR ABOUT 20 MIN OF THE DIVE THEN IT SHIFTED TO THE NORTH AT ABOUT A HALF KNOT. WE WERE VERY PLEASED AND EVERYONE WANTED TO DO IT AGAIN. WE SPENT APPROX. 45 MINUTES WITH A MAXIMUM OF 50 FT.

"Typical rest day"

SIESTA WITH OCCASIONAL DIPS INTO THE POOL

LUNCHED AT COFFEELIA, A NEW RESTAURANT ALMOST NEXT DOOR TO THE HOTEL. IT WAS A DISASTER. WE WON'T RETURN.

DINED AT 'LOS CHILANGOS'. CHILES RELLENOS ALL AROUND

"Third day of diving"

OUR 3RD DAY FIRST DIVE WAS ON PALANCAR CAVES, NOTED FOR ITS CAVES IN THE TALL CORAL FORMATIONS. TODAY THE CURRENT WAS SLOW. WE SAW A FEW LARGE GROUPERS AND TURTLES NEAR THE END OF THE DIVE.

OUR SECOND DIVE WAS ON PAESO DE CEDRAL , WE SPENT APPROX. 45 MINUTES WITH A MAXIMUM OF 50 FT. WITH A CURRENT OF 1.5 KNOTS. WE SAW SMALL FISH, A RAY, A CRAB AND LOBSTERS

"Last dive day"

WORM FLOWERS IN THE CURRENT.

OUR FIRST DIVE ON THE LAST DIVE DAY WAS ON LA LELA, NOTED FOR ITS SEA LIFE, IT LIVED UP TO ITS REPUTATION. IT IS A LITTLE DIVED REEF AND UNCROWDED.

OUR SECOND DIVE WAS ON LAS PALMAS, TODAY THERE WAS A NORTH CURRENT ABOUT 1/2 KNOT THROUGHOUT APPROX. 45 MINUTES WITH A MAXIMUM OF 50 FT. MUCH NICER WITH SOUTH CURRENT. THIS TOO IS A LITTLE DIVED REEF AND UNCROWDED

"GENERAL COMMENTS:"

I FEEL THIS WAS A GOOD TRIP SINCE:

o THE PEOPLE WERE ALL OLD FRIENDS,
o NO ONE WAS ARRESTED, SICK OR HOSPITALIZED,
o THE FISH AND CORAL WERE BEAUTIFUL,
o THE MEXICAN BEER AND FOOD WERE DELICIOUS AS ALWAYS
o AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO BORROW MONEY TO GET HOME.
o I SHALL RETURN

"SUMMER GETAWAY"

SUMMER GETAWAY:

WE USED A COMBINATION OF TRAVEL MODES TO GET TO COZUMEL. PRIVATE VEHICLES TO ORLANDO; PLANE TO CANCUN; VAN TO PLAYA DEL CARMEN; FERRY TO COZUMEL; TAXI TO HOTEL. SOMEWHAT COMPLICATED AND QUITE A BUT CHEAPER, AND IT WORKED OUT WELL WITH NO SNAGS.

Does Anyone Remember "Puesta del Sol" in Pie de la Cuesta?

by jeana-r

Hi,
I remember visiting a small hotel in Pie de la Cuesta back in the mid -90s called Puesta del Sol. Quite large, main house (most of which was closed), and 2 level garden apartment type arrangement on the beach. Shocking pink and with a landscaped area and pool. It was owned by a couple from the US (Indiana, I think) but run by a wonderful Mexican family. Can't find it anywhere on the web and am wondering if it's still around or now under new ownership with a new name.

Many thanks.
Jeana

Travel Tips for Acapulco

No Pre-Funking Needed!

by toddakiyama

*If you plan to head out to the local bars/clubs or nightclubs, no pre-funking in your hotel room is needed.

*You can enjoy the many happy hour specials the restaurants offer throughout town.

*You may even meet some locals while pre-funking like we did, and you can tag-along with them to some of the more happening clubs that particular night.

*The locals know which nights have specials at certain venues and where the most happening scenes are

Cliff Divers

by circle110

I have been to this event many times and it still amazes me. If you like sit at the La Perla for drinks while you watch the divers. The diving begins at 7:30pm and I think ends at 10:30pm with diving with torches. After each dive the divers will come up thru the crowd to collect tips. They are great divers. World famous. Usually the 7:30pm is about the time sunset is happening. It is gorgeous. Must see for Acapulco
