Acapulco has received some disturbing press lately after brutal drug-related murders took place in this famous Mexican resort city. Consequently, I thought I would try to lighten things up by sharing a slideshow of photos that I've taken during several visits to Acapulco during recent years.
Acapulco enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a romantic getaway and an all-night party town. But it is much more than these. The port of Acapulco has a long and rich history, and visitors can spice up their margaritas with a generous splash of Mexican culture if they so choose.
