  • Cliff Divers

    Acapulco Things to Do

    We were fortunate enough to get the perfect seat for the show. The cliff Divers are neat to watch and the show was not too long. If you are in Acapulco and have a chance to see them I would not pass it up in a second. After the show the divers will be standing on the ramp that takes you to the street signing autographs and taking pictures. Do not...

    Zihuatanejo Warnings and Dangers

    Taking a taxi from Zihuatanejo to Ixtapa takes only a few minutes as the distance is just about 5km, but the narrow winding road up from the port and over to the next "village" also is the route horse-drawn (better stated donkey-drawn) carts who move a whole lot slower than the taxis that are looking for every peso they can fit into a day of...

    Zihuatanejo Tourist Traps

    Upon arriving at the Zihuatanejo airport, look for a taxi kiosk. I learned this the hard way. Do NOT buy a ticket before you see the cab and definitely do not pay for a round trip ticket. A man named Jorge Grotewold Sanchez gave me a voucher saying I had paid upfront and that's the way it was done there, that I would have to pay for both ways. I...

    Ixtapa Local Customs

    The beaches in Mexico are not "owned" by the hotels that might be built only a few hundred feet away. The Palapas and beach chairs that are in front of the hotel however ARE (probably) the property of the hotel. If the hotel is paying the government a "beach concession" they have the right to "rent" those items to people that want to use the beach,...

    Ixtapa Local Customs

    You have to try a tequila. Take a chupito or drink it in margerita. You have lots of tequilas but my husband Marcos who's Mexican so he will know, he recommends Centenario, La herradura.Tequila can cause some funny but also strange situations. A su salud.!!!!

Taxco de Alarcón

  • Cheap, Cheap Pizza

    Taxco de Alarcón Restaurants

    Look at that pizza! It looks like a frozen McCain Mini Pizza designed for kids to put in their microwaves as an after-school snack. However, that is what Pizzas Estrelar serves up, and for some reason their business is booming. One possible reason is that they offer "mini" pizzas- teeny-tiny pizzas (as seen in my photo) that cost about a dollar and...

    Cafe Sotavento is located just a few steps from the Zocalo, on the second floor of a historic building. Inside this small restaurant tables and comfortable chairs are filled with families and local students, with the luckiest getting to sit beside a window for views of the street below. This restaurant felt like a family affair to me, as I was...

    There were three main places that I enjoyed at night in Mazatlan .First of all there was Gringo Lingo. This is a good place to have a few drinks, maybe get a bite to eat and then move on later in the night. It's a very bright upbeat place, they have good drinks and decent appetizers. That's pretty much all I have to say about Gringo Lingo. Next,...

    My favorite thing about Mazatlan is the people. From the moment I arrived until our departure I had nothing but great service and a friendly atmosphere. When I would walk down the beach people that I had only met once or twice would be calling my name. "Nikki, where have you been" or " Hey Nikki come have a drink." Everyone made me feel right at...

    Taxco el Viejo Tourist Traps

    The entire town of Taxco is a tourist trap---you are immediately bombarded with people trying to sell you silver and eat at their restaurants. Also, the silver was not really unique--I'm sure I could get it anywhere here in Houston or in the southwest---and I was suspicious some of the silver was made in china. Eat lunch at the Parroquia, in the...

    Several miles south of Taxco el Viejo, and about 1/4 kilometer off to the west, is a 'bottomless well' about 8-10 meters in diameter. Legend has it that substantial numbers of defeated soldiers have been marched into the wellwith not even a whiff of bad odor coming back up. Tracer dyes are said to have been thrown in, with no subsequent outlets...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The tour is in Spanish and there is a small fee, but this museum is a very informative place. They are closed on Monday. There is an eatery and a hotel next to each other in walking distance. I love to just sit there and talk to the people. I am African-American and I speak Spanish as a second language. I have visitd there three times, when I was living in Acapulco, and I have spent two nights. There is a bus service from Acapulco early in the morning. (Futura) The people are very friendly. The sun is very hot, so please take an umbrella .

    Copala What to Pack

    Travel light because lugging heavy bags on and off busses and onto and off pick-up taxi's, etc., and then carting them to/from hotels which may be 1/2 mile away can wear you out - ask me, I know! For Playa Ventura: t-shirts and shorts - you'll need little else. Good mosquito repellant. I was there in October 2004 and didn't have repellant with me...

    Hey, this is one of the "most excellent" Pacific Coast destinations you'll find, so relax and enjoy your time there. Remember, there aren't too many "creature comforts" here, but enough to make the stay enjoyable. This is a spot for travelers seeking something "off the beaten path" (one doesn't just "stumble across" the place, you have to really...

    Copala Tourist Traps

    No different than any other coastal areas where tourists show up, the people at Playa Ventura are adept at getting you to pay the highest prices possible for everything - if they can get away with it. Try to familiarize yourself with what things generally cost elsewhere in Mexico so you can then try to bargain a little. In the end, however . . ....
