Acapulco has been receiving some disturbing press lately, so I thought I would try to lighten things up by sharing a slideshow featuring a few of the photos that I’ve taken over the years in this lively resort city.

Acalpulco also has a long and rich history, and visitors can spice up their margaritas with a generous splash of Mexican culture if they so choose.
