Acapulco?

Yes, I have read all of the dire warning about visiting Acapulco. Just curious, do any hardy ex-pats actually live there anymore? I really like it when I visited a few years ago. It had the air of a crumbling paradise even then.

Years ago when we first arrived we included Acapulco as a possibility. We did not seek nor see expats - in fact it felt a little desolate. At the time the cruise ships had stopped visiting. As you say - it was kind of old and crumbling.

BUT - it turns out there are actually 3 areas to Acapulco - and last year we stayed at a resort in the Diamonte area. It was VERY nice - but pricey. It was so nice that it is now on the list for a possible retirement condo when we no longer want the house we live in.

Did you read that Acapulco recently fired the entire police force, hundreds of people (for suspected cartel connections) and brought in the military ?

So now it's an armed camp, lovely. Both Mexico and the US should legalize drugs. Prohibition always leads to violence and disrespect for the rule of law.

My Uber driver yesterday here in Puerto Vallarta said he moved to PV 2 months ago because everyone in Acapulco feared for their lives including the police.

I lived in Puerto Vallarta and talked to many taxi drivers and workers in shops. I learned from them that at least 25% of Mexicans in PV are from Acapulco.

The military recently disarmed the Acapulco police. https://www.npr.org/2018/09/26/651708030/mexican-authorities-disarm-acapulco-police-amid-infiltration-concerns-by-drug-ga
