WE HAVE NEVER EVER FELT UNSAFE OR AT RISK ON ANY OF OUR NUMEROUS VISITS AND TRAVELS THROUGHOUT MEXICO, EVER !
When we were in Mexico City, we drove to an excellent little beachside hotel 10 miles north of Acapulco, HOTEL VILLA NIRVANA, rooms are large and clean and close enough to the ocean to feel the bed shake when big waves crash. We had the 2 double beds, closest to the ocean with a balcony that had a table, chairs and a hammock. The owners. Daniel and Pamela, are extremely kind and welcoming, It was fantastic sitting around the pool and beach enjoying beverages from the fully stocked self serve coolers. Be sure to try a Club Sandwich or Burger while your at it! Don't be scared by all the hype, this is a fantastic spot away from most of the tourist, Some really good food a couple of doors down at La Ola del la Buen Sabor.
