Just thought I'd include this notice from the Acapulco Tourism Dept...............
Acapulco Destination Marketing Office announces that local authorities in Acapulco are working in conjunction with State and Federal Government to increase the city’s resources in order to ensure that all tourist areas within Acapulco remain safe, well lit and clean to guarantee the comfort and well being of all visitors to Acapulco. Despite reports to the contrary appearing in the press, the criminal acts of violence which occurred recently did not target the tourism community and took place in the outskirts of Acapulco, miles away from the main hotel zone.
Additionally, it is important to note that the hotels in Acapulco are currently experiencing hotel occupancy levels of approximately 93% during the 2010 spring break travel period, with many national and international visitors including MTV Networks enjoying their stay within the destination without incident. The network, which is filming the popular MTV 2010 Spring Break event in Acapulco from March 14-18th will continue as scheduled.
For years, Acapulco has remained a popular vacation destination for Canadian and US travelers, who travel to experience the golden beaches, timeless glamour and legendary nightlife that are synonymous with Mexico’s premiere beach resort. This year, a “new” Acapulco has been unveiled, offering an impressive array of new, luxury hotels and resorts, restaurants and attractions. These projects, coupled with the existing collection of world-class options will further solidify Acapulco’s position as one of Mexico most sought after vacation destinations.
