      Take smartphone to Acapulco

      I live in the U.S. and was wondering if taking a smartphone with a prepaid data plan with me on my upcoming trip to Acapulco would be a wise decision? Would it help me get around the city more efficiently?

      From Acapulco to Oaxaca by bus

      by fool_moon Online Now Jan 6, 2013 at 8:29 AM

      How can I get by bus from Acapulco to Oaxaca avoiding to go via Mexico City? It seems that there is no direct connection but I cant even find a bus from Acapulco to Puerto Escondido. From there to Oaxaca exists a daily bus, so the question is to find a way from Acapulco to P.Escondido, maybe with a bus change underway.

    • Does Anyone Remember "Puesta del Sol" in Pie de la Cuesta?

      by jeana-r Online Now Feb 26, 2010 at 6:03 PM

      Hi,
      I remember visiting a small hotel in Pie de la Cuesta back in the mid -90s called Puesta del Sol. Quite large, main house (most of which was closed), and 2 level garden apartment type arrangement on the beach. Shocking pink and with a landscaped area and pool. It was owned by a couple from the US (Indiana, I think) but run by a wonderful Mexican family. Can't find it anywhere on the web and am wondering if it's still around or now under new ownership with a new name.

      Many thanks.

      I have the opportunity to bring six college undergraduates to Acapulco (lodging has been provided for free)in May 2010. Does anyone know of a place they can volunteer their services? They are interested in community planning, working with children and poverty issues. (Half of them are fluent in Spanish.)

      city tours from the cruise terminal

      by acprincess Online Now Nov 5, 2007 at 1:14 PM

      I'm going to be in Acapulco for an afternoon and evening, arriving at noon on a cruise ship. My mother wants to take a city tour that includes the cliff divers. My sister is phobic about not booking it through the cruise line because she doesn't want to overpay. I've heard about someone called Rosie, but I can't find any contact info for her on the internet. Any suggestions?

      Thanks,

      We're looking for something less American touristy, with a nice Mexican vibe, not too pricey, but still safe and fun.

      Cheap accommodation

      by kgeorg Online Now Apr 5, 2007 at 4:55 AM

      Hello,

      I am going to Acapulco with a friend for a week in the end of May. Our budget is very limited so we are looking for something cheap but pleasant, with a shower ensuite and preferably with a refrigerator. I read about Villa Romana (Av. López Mateos 185), but it seems it is not possible to book it online. Does anyone know about some nice place for up to about 40 US dollars per room? No need to be in the touristic area.

      Thank you,

    • Aquarium

      by marchmonkey Online Now Mar 26, 2007 at 11:57 AM

      We are cruising the Mexican Riveria with our two children, 12 and 13, as well as their grandparents. We have one day and evening in Acapulco, December 26th. I was wondering about the Waterpark/Aquarium since no one else appears to have mentioned it. I know by that point, they may be a bit exhausted of history, local shopping and "proper behavior". My idea was to do the waterpark early and then catch the cliff divers at sunset. Is this remotely a good idea? I also cannot find any prices for the waterpark. How crowded does it get? Any comments would be appreciated. From what I have heard Acapulco can be a bit intimidating when you first arrive with vendors and beggars and we want to have somewhat of a plan in place before arriving. Thanks.

    • One Day in Acapulco

      by jeana-r Online Now Jan 29, 2007 at 6:47 AM

      Hi,
      Will only be in Acapulco one day, departing a cruise ship, and leaving very early the next moring for a 7:00 am flight. I have been reading this forum and learned than the downtown (zocalo area) will be very close to the cruise ship.
      Unfortunately, I'll have my luggage with me and won't be able to sightsee until I drop it at a hotel, but I'll probably want to head back to this area for the day.
      Can anyone suggest a safe inexpensive hotel for the night, close enough for sightseeing and an early dinner (walking distance would be great, but not essential), but even more importantly, easy enough to get a cab at 5:00 am the next morning?
      Probably should also ask if it is possible to reserve a taxi for that time, and how reliable that might be.
      I am single, traveling solo, so safety is also of importance to me.
      Thanks,
      Jeana
