September 26, 2010 1 Comment   Though our trip to Acapulco in April of 2009 goes down in the books as one of the worst I’ve ever taken, (see the article, Acapulco Mexico - Our First Disaster Vacation), the resort we stayed at was beautiful.  It’s located about 20 minutes from downtown Acapulco which is one of the things I loved ...
