We initially booked the sister hotel but were diverted here as it was undergoing renovation. What a treat, the facilties in room were excellent, it was a little cramped maybe with all three kids on sofa beds in the lounge but that was the only down side. The kitchenette was great, it had all the stuff I needed to cook (the restaurants and bars are very expensive!) and the kids just didn't want to leave. The pools are extensive with a lazy river and you can use all the facilites at the clubhouse as well. My only criticism you have to pay quite a lot for use of the internet which these days is a very strange concept!!!

That, coupled with the Yucatan cities of Cancun and Playa del Carmen developing into the party towns they now are, Acapulco has ...
... s devastating Hurricane Manuel, so tourism (the main industry) has hit an all-time low. The lack of other foreign tourists in the area made us easy targets for determined salespeople and long stares. We didn't feel safe walking around at night, nor comfortable laying on the beach (though we did stumble upon an awesome veggie restaurant). We paid upfront for three nights' stay at our hotel and left after ...
Today we spent the day sailing down the coast of Mexico. From our map, we are off the coast of Acapulco. No port stops today as we are heading to Guatamala, which takes two nights and two days sailing to arrive. The waters are very calm and the sailing very smooth. We are both very relaxed and Johnny is enjoying the variety of foods on board.
... on the trip so far. In total it must have been rather close to 400 miles.
We left the hotel right on 8am and after filling up our tanks found our way out the city easily.
This road today was to be extremely windy just about every inch of the way and so of course on any such road this means we have to ride slower and concentrate much more than we would on a long straight road. However this road had something else that slowed us down much more than ...
