Acapulco

Posted on: February 25, 2010

Last week I was lucky to be in one of the prettiest places in Central America. I played a tournament in a Mexican city called Guadalajara and then traveled south to Acapulco, also in Mexico. There was a big professional tennis tournament going on there when I went, and I spent most of the time watching matches, but the little I saw of the city, its bays and harbours was beautiful. The road that takes from one side of the bay to the other has breathtaking views of the seaport and the many different shapes of the coast due to erosion from the sea. Unlike many other coastal cities, Acapulco is green and full of nature and vegetation, something unusual considering the high temperatures that are present in this part of the world during the whole year. One of the major attractions of the city are the La Quebrada Cliff Divers, natives from the city that climb a cliff 40 meters tall in order to dive into an inlet only seven meters wide and four meters deep!
All this combined brings a lot of tourism to the city, making it one of the oldest and most well-known beach resorts in Mexico.
