"My latest trip"

This is a photo I took on my 30th trip to Acapulco just this past March.

This is the old city or centro of Acapulco seen from my balcony at the Suites Alba.

"Caleta Beach"

I've been to Acapulco so many times I've stayed in hotels from one end of the strip to the other. I like to stay at Caleta Beach best of all. It's the old original beach they chose first when they opened up Acapulco 40 years ago. That's because it's the best beach. It's a double horseshoe with huge islands in front that break the waves. That way there is no undertow, the sand doesn't stir up into your bathing suit, the sand is smooth and the water is clear and very warm at 88f degrees.

Here's a photo I took from the Grand Meigas Hotel of the beach at Caleta and the little white hotel on the beach is now my favorite place to stay. It's called the Acamar Beach Club and it's just great. The location right on the beach is superb and you just go down 2 steps from the pool and you are on the beach. The rooms are large and the beachfront balconies on the upper level are 25 feet square with a kitchenette outside so you don't heat up the whole room. The area is very quiet at night so you get a good sleep.

Excellent budget accomodation.


You just have to walk out the front door of the Acamar Beach Resort and you are at the Caleta traffic circle, right on the Costera which is the main boulevard running next to the ocean from one end of the city to the other. The tourist bus stops right outside the door and for 40 cents takes you to the other end of the city past the Walmart (Fabulous with a fantastic food section, cheap booze and a fantastic delly with hot and cold food). Caleta is about as far as you can get from the hustle and bustle of the strip but $2 in a blue and white beetle cab gets you to the old city, $4.00 to the strip $5 or $6 to the WalMart 15 miles. For 20 cents you can ride one of the fancy airbrushed local busses like Mr Orange in the photo heading to the strip. At night it turns into a disco bus with neon lights and low but powerful beat music. This way you can have all the fun of the strip and the huge noise and laughter and come home and sleep at night. I never heard a sound after 10pm. The streets are a little bit deserted here at night so I don't think it is that safe to walk alone at night but that goes for any city. If you want to walk at night go to the strip, it goes all night long.

We have travelled many routes by various busses in Mexico and always found them to be a great way to travel; altho we have not done this particular route.

Travel Tips for Acapulco

What else could that be...

by daBertl

What else could that be Acapulco but the famous 'Clavadistas'. Hurling oneself halfnaked off jagged cliffs is not a coming of age ritual in Acapulco, but a serios occupation for trained professionals. At La Quebrada Cliffs around the north side of the bay, the Clavadistas perform daily shows, diving 25 t0 35 meters off a cliff and slipping effortlessly into the frothing surf. Quite impressing and scary.

In Acapulco, every night is...

by daBertl

In Acapulco, every night is Saturday night. Luring young party-seekers from D.F., the town transforms at night into one continuous strip of partying with the best clubs clustering on th beach side near the CICI. Most clubs thump from 11 PM to dawn and charge over 100 Pesos cover, which usually includes open bar. It's always easier and cheaper for ladies to get in, and many clubs offer no cover and open bar to girls weeknights.

The probably most famous spots are PALLADIUM, ANDROMEDAS, BARBARROJA and BABY ' O.
If you stay for a weekend and wanna have party - you got it. Open bar and dancing crowds. It's easy to meet people and most local people are totally friendly, especially to Europeans. For the clubs you better dress abit up - no shorts, no beach sandals, no sneakers, etc. For ladies, the less the better and you get free drinks and whatever else you want.

Considering the view of St. Prisca Church and Plaza de Borda below, Ranas has made it as a favorite restaurant. A brief overview of St. Prisca: The church was built in 1778 and 8 years to finish. There are tour guides in the church, but you must ask whether the price is per person or per tour.

Horsebackriding at Pie de la Custa

by GinGinCoo

We went to this beautiful beach called Pie de la Cuesta means "at the foot of the sunset" for one whole day. It is famous for their gorgeous sunsets and cococut gin. I loved drinking those (one more coconut gin por favor!). You can relax and get a tan while drinking the coconut gin or have your hair braided - A La Bo Derek (I did! for a bargain too) by the locals, We also went horsebackriding for half an hour.
