I wish I had counted how many times I heard "Copacabana" a la Barry Manilow: in the elevator, in the pool ladies room, poolside, etc. But, no complaints whatsoever. The 'Pulco took my breath away. It really did.
Anyhoo, here's a little snapshot of our Acapulco experience...
The view from our balcony:
Another view from our balcony...
Ahhh...feet in the sand. This is probably the most coarse sand I have ever come across. Felt neat.
The Pacific, my boy and moi.
Sunset shot from our balcony.
The Ruben's Hamburger. Simply one of the best burger's I have ever had.
We had two each on this trip. Washed down with a Corona.
Our last 2 days were grey, but a break from the relentless Acapulco sun was welcomed. We made a trip to Senor Frog's on the first grey day. The Acapulco location is a little disappointing compared to others we've been to. What was not lacking was the view from the restaurant...worth the trip up there.
This margarita & pina colada were from Frog's, but the hotel drinks were fantastic!
Lime margs are the way!
Other highlights from our point of view, in point form of course:
- Su Casa. Oh. My. Gawd. If you go to Acapulco, eat here. You pay a bit more, but it's more than worth it. Trev feasted on the rib-eye steak, while I had the butterflied garlic shrimp. The location, service and food are all impeccable...a triple threat for sure. A huge thanks to the Minnesota gang that recommended Su Casa to us.
- Busted. Trev and I are not troublemakers. Usually. Haha! However, security nabbed us for bringing Coca-Cola & chips into the hotel and floating around in the pool with our insulated Bubba Keg mugs.
- Vibe. I can't believe the stuff happening. Flea markets, dancing, city buses pumping with dance music complete with spoilers...the list goes on. My biggest eye-opener: I had never seen a man come around with two handles and a portable electricity generator in which they were attached to. I cannot believe people pay to be literally shocked.
- Landscape. Pictures don't do it justice. If you haven't been, go.
Now back to reality!
