I was unaware of the state dept ban on Acapulco when I included it in my travel plans as a 2-day visit out of a 6-day Mexico trip. We drove 4 hours from Mexico City to Acapulco in a rental car using the toll road. Mountainous driving and no traffic but tolls cost over $25 USD. We stayed at an AirBnB in a gated Acapulco neighborhood and felt extremely safe with a million dollar view of the bay. Enjoyed the beach at Playa Condesa with a small hut and eats/drinks on the beach for reasonable price, but a lot of vendors approached and required many "no, gracias" from the group. We had dinner at an open cafe on the beach and then shopped at an open market at night with no issues. Many locals were on the street for the weekend, but bars and restaurants are generally empty.

A nice beach where a little hut with table and chairs are inexpensive. Service for food and beverage at resonable price for being on the beach. The water gets deep fast, but is warm. Frequented by familys and gays. Everyone gets along. We enjoy our time there. Easy to catch the bus.

Just returned from visit during the first two weeks March 2018. This is my 5th visit. Spent a weekday at Condesa, Paradise Restaurant. About 5-7 people on the entrie beach. Many more vendors than visitors, None making sales. Very sad to see. Walked north from Paradise and found many abandoned beach front buildings. Filled with broken glass, urine, feces. Seems like the State Dept. warnings have chased lots of people away. Acapulco is dying. Could not find any direct flights from the US. Hassel to go through Mexico City. Few if any cruise ships anymore. Went to most of the top 10 restaurants. Only about 2-4 tables with customers. Most hotels had few guests. Consequently everyone is forced to cut corners. Hire cheaper help (little or no english), serve less quality food, poor service from fewer and inexperienced hotel workers, and lots of other down grading. Acapulco is active on weekends when the Mexico City folks come in. But this is not enough to support the town. Not much improvement in service, just lots more people for two days. No direct flights, no cruise ships, fewer services, hotels and restaurants fading. I guess this was my last visit. Other Mexico resorts town are much better, Puerto Vallarta, for example. Sad to see such a beautiful place as Acapulco dying on the vine.
