Drive to Acapulco
Don't be fooled by a modern map. Mex 950 is superhighway comparable to our interstate system. The route we traveled was much closer to what is now Mex 95. I don't know about today, but then it was one lane in each direction, winding and even tunneling through the mountains.
In Acapulco, we stayed at El Mirador, a hotel perched on a cliff over the Pacific and close to town. We slept in our own cabin, but food and entertainment was in the main building. It is still there, and still seemed very nice when we visited on a cruise in about 2000.
