35-49 year old male
Hi there, as you have already noticed I am based at the Mexican Caribbean a beautifull place full of color and life, wonderfull landscapes, beaches and the extraordinary blue caribbean sea, such a paradise... I was born in Mexico City , i used to live in downtown, pretty close to the place in wich the archaeologist Eduardo Matos Moctezuma, found the ruins of the Main Temple of the Aztec Civilization. I am a Story Teller, i always knew it, and when someone listen to my words i feel so glad, because i can bring back to the life the magic of the aztecs, the mayas, the ancient cities that grew up in the middle of the jungle, and i can stil hear the roar of the jaguar, the song of the quetzal and i give a new dimention to the motives of the heroes that created our country and left a legacy that now we call History.

Points of Interest & Landmarks
A quiet lagoon with calm waters, Laguna de Coyuca is a great place for swimming, kayaking, or paddleboarding. Few tourists come here, so it has a local flavor; and there are a handful of small restaurants where you and unwind with a beer or coconut water, plus a variety of yummy local dishes at good prices.
Located about an hour's drive from Acapulco, Barra Vieja Beach feels like a well-kept secret. It's great for beach strolls, boating, horseback riding, and... eating. Here, you'll find some wonderful small restaurants that serve up typical, homemade dishes you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Go out for a swim, and then watch the sunset while sipping a cold beer.
Parque Nacional El Veladero is a true hidden gem of Acapulco. The ecological reserve is home to incredible flora and fauna, as well as a fascinating archaeological site, Palma Sola.
At the archaeological site of Palma Sola, you can witness ancient art, carved on the rocks thousands of years ago. The hike to the area is steep and rocky, but the site is well worth the trek.
One of the best parts of visiting Isla Roqueta is getting there: The boat ride will allow you admire the island and its surroundings. Take a swim, and then enjoy the tiny shops and restaurants on the island — you'll feel the warmth of the villagers, who will receive you with a big smile!
Laguna de Tres Palos is a beautiful lagoon where you can relax to the max while enjoying the local flora and fauna. Not frequented by tourists, the lagoon has a lovely calm to it, but it also stands out for having one of the best sunsets around. The best way to explore every little corner is to take a boat ride — once you are at Tres Palos, it's easy to arrange this service!
A really beautiful place, Acapulco Botanical Garden showcases the flora of Acapulco, divided up by the different species. You'll also be treated to great views of the city. Don't miss the center section, where you can grab a drink to freshen up!
Located near the center of Acapulco, Bahia de Puerto is one of the most visited and best known bays, but if you visit during low season it's like a completely different bay. With fewer tourists around, you can spend a relaxed day just tanning, swimming, or watching the luxury yachts that come and go.
Although you may not spend more than fifteen minutes admiring the Mural Diego Rivera, it is a part of town that you mustn't miss. You'll get to see a glimpse of Rivera's genius, as well as a part of our pre-Hispanic culture translated through his work.
If you are looking for a place to enjoy some solitude, Pie de la Cuesta is a wonderful choice. You'll find a variety of tiny local restaurants and, if you're a surf lover, you can also get some practice in.
