Mexico

Overview

Quote:
We stayed a week at the Mayan Palace in Acapulco. I had the one-bedroom, which was like a hotel room. The pool is beautiful and the spa is very good. The dining is excellent (expensive). The beaches are fantastic.

Best Way To Get Around:

You should have a car. But when new airport goes in, Larry (formerly of Lucy's) will rent dune buggies. There is a new limo service from Phoenix to the door of the hotel, and then bus rides into town are .

I tried the specialty buffets (seafood, Mexican, Chinese, breakfast, etc.), and all were well done. The salads were fresh and varied, the desserts were excellent, and main courses were very good.

There were miles and miles of beautiful sand beaches, tidal pools, shells, and beach cabanas with loungers. Soccer, volleyball, and table tennis was played on the beach. There were night campfires.
