    Security is No laughing matter!

    by toddakiyama Updated Jul 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    *If you're flying to and out of Acapulco, security is still no laughing matter.

    *D-Rich, pictured here was your typical first time visitor to Acapulco.
    He was the typical loud mouth American visitor.. a Gringo

    *Although things didn't seem as intense as the Airport security back in the States, having a shirt on and not joking around is probably the best practice

    *Also, not reaking of alcohol will also prevent in most cases a search of your backpack/ seems that D-Rich wasn't smelling too rosy this day :)

    *Remember there are limits to the number of bottles of alcohol and tobacco you can carry back with you

    Security check for suprise at all :)

    *Traffic can be a mess during the day and at rush hour...weekends too

    *Plan accordingly

    *One time, we had to drive out of town since we missed our cruise boat and it took over an hour just to get out of the city limits

    *If you have to meet your tour group, catch a plane, etc...PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

  • Dangerous driving and biking

    by solis Written May 9, 2003

    I have had a house in Acapulco (colonia Jardin Palmas) since 1992. I usually have a car (or pickup) with me and I love to bike. However, I would generally discourage visitors to rent a car or bike around the city. There are not that many flat, uncrowded areas around the city for biking. My two favorite places are Pie de la Cuesta (10 km west) and the area around Revolcadero and the Mayan Palace to the east. I urge you to avoid especially renting a car: the streets are way too confusing, you will get lost. Taxis and busses are much cheaper and safer.
