the southern half of Mexico's Pacific coast, Acapulco nestles
between the surf and the majestic mountains that enfold its
sickle-shaped bay. It has evolved from a bustling shipping port,
where vessels called to trade in silk, porcelain, and ivory in
the 1600's, to become Mexico's largest, grandest, and most
booming resort. Today, it is referred to as the "Riviera of
the West," famous for its beaches, luxury hotels, and
upscale shopping malls.
