Hola Acapulco!

Acapulco de Juarez, Mexico

After a fabulous week in Ixtapa, we have now travelled 4 hours with bus further south, to Acapulco.
I had heard about this town, a populaer holiday destination for Americans in the 70's.
The temperature is the same as Ixtapa, about 40 degrees celsius.

Acapulco was a big city, much more "western" than any other mexican city we had visited so far. It had McDonalds, Hard Rock Cafe, Planet Hollywood etc..It was a cool shopping city!

A strange thing about the city: All the cabs are Volkswagen bubbles!

Laying on the beach in Acapulco for white people is very disturbing! We were approached by sellers every 30 second, it's true! We got sick of it, so we decided to take the bus to a laguna-area a little bit north of the city: Pie de la Cuesta.

But we also saw the "real" Mexico here, very dirty streets and backyards..! VERY dirty!

Here we relaxed 2 days on a distant beach with no other toursits! It was nice, but we got a bit "lonely" here, so we decided to go back to Acapulco for 1 day before our next target, Taxco.
