A day in Acapulco
After three days at sea, and they were fun ones, we finally arrived in Acapulco. We booked a tour to the cliff divers and they didn’t fail to entertain. The divers are amazing, they dive from a 120 ft cliff into a pool of water that constantly is coming in and out. We watched several divers from a lookout at the top of the cliff. After the cliff divers we toured the city of Acapulco and like most Mexican cities it has its contrasts. Some areas are extremely poor and other areas with fabulous houses of the rich and famous from all over the world. When we arrived back at the ship we seen a wonderful folk loric show that featured a six piece mariachi band and about ten dancers doing lots of different traditional dances. Tomorrow, Huatulco where we will probably just walk into the town.
