Mexico 5: Acapulco

Mexico  5: Acapulco

Acapulco, called the "Riviera of the West" is Mexico's oldest, largest, and one of its most popular, seaside resorts. Enjoying a romantic and glorious history, it is a twenty-four hour, non-stop city, with glamour, glitz and pure luxury. In this program we share in the Mexican flavor and tradition that makes this city one of the most exciting places in the world. At Playa Revolcadero horseback riding along with surfing is popular on this white sandy beach; also parasailing provides a spectacular birds-eye view of the Sierra Mountains. Cliff divers have thrilled visitors since the 1930s by diving off La Quebrada cliffs into the surf 12 stories below. In the old part of town, flea markets are a popular shopping attraction with more than 500 booths and items such as pottery and jewelry from the state of Guerrero; also family and friends spend Thursday afternoons eating Pazole, a mixture of chicken and pork stew. Since seafood is plentiful, 75% of the residents here are employed in the fishing industry. Lastly, we witness a rain ceremony, a gravity-defying, ancient Indian ritual, which is still performed today for tourists. 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
