I have to admit. I was very skeptical about traveling to Acapulco. I had read some bad press and wasn't sure what this vacation would be like. It took some serious coercing tactics by my wife to persuade me into this trip. My wife had been in communication with a gentleman by the name of Baldo Gomez (a highly recommended driver on trip advisor). He responded quickly and precisely and with great detail. He is the main reason that I decided to move forward with the trip. Baldo's Nephew also works with him. His name is ramone. He was very helpful and we had a blast with him as well. These guys speak perfect English and are so helpful and really know the history of Acapulco. Boy am I so glad that I took my wife's advice. This was by far the best location we have visited in Mexico and possibly anywhere else. Everything was beautiful and there is just so much culture and so many great things to do in Acapulco. Thanks to Baldo, we did not waste any time on researching. He recommended places and things to do and we trusted him without question. He was so right on everything. Everything we did with Baldo was great. He even recommended that we spend some time at the resort and knew when we would need to kick back and relax or get on the move at the many great places. If you decide to contact Baldo, make sure you go on his city tour, the Laguna experience, and save an evening for dinner overlooking the bay. It is an awesome sight with so many lights. I have never seen anything like it. My only recommendation is to ask if they can break change for your pesos before you buy anything. If they can't make change....don't bother. Make sure you have plenty of 20, 10, 50, and 100 pesos denominations.
The Mayan Palace was the perfect location and family spot. The pools were really great and the staff at the restaurant and pool bar were so courteous and professional. The food was awesome at the Samba and Marcos, Gabriel Gonzalez and Israel de la Cruz really went out of their way to provide immaculate service. These guys really went out of their way to make us comfortable. Juan Carlos, and his friends call him Juan Carlos, was such a nice guy and provided a friendly and fun service at the pool bar.
I don't know what else to say. Between Baldo Gomez and the guys at the Palace there is not much more I could ask for. This was the best vacation we have been on and I plan on making the trip every year, at least once a year.
If you are making this trip, be sure to contact Baldo. firstname.lastname@example.org
I plan on traveling back to Acapulco again sooner than later. I don't see any reason not to stay at one of the Mayans again and will definitely contact Baldo prior to my arrival to book him up :) My kids ask about him and when we are going to see him again, literally every day.
