... s. Elvis made a song (and a movie) about it, John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned here and celebs like Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor were regulars. But then the city fell on hard times with crime and drug wars bringing horrible violence to the streets and tourism came to a halt.

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.
