Preparing your trip to Acapulco: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Acapulco 1. It’s customary to leave tips in the local restaurants. As a rule, the typical amount of tips is 10 - 15% of the total bill.
2. While selecting a hotel, you should pay attention not only to its rank and number of stars, but also to the range of services offered to tourists. The classification of hotels in the city does not fully coincide with the European standards.
3. You should be extremely careful in public places and should not carry valuables without any particular need. There are many pickpockets in public transport and shopping centers.
4. The tourists, who plan to rent a car and explore the city’s surroundings, are recommended to travel on toll roads as they are more secure.
5. Taxis are better to be hired on special parking only or called by the phone. It is best to clarify the cost of your trip beforehand. Copyright
6. Do not make walks to provincial areas of the city at night. Acapulco’s neighborhoods are better to be observed with a guide.
7. The power supply voltage is 110 V, so make sure you check all electrical appliances for compatibility or purchase an adapter if necessary before the trip.
Acapulco is a great choice for visitors who enjoy active recreation and for those who like spending evening time in the clubs. We suggest visiting One Dollar nightclub, which is located near … Open
8. Currency is better to be exchanged in points located at the airport as they offer most advantageous rates. Large shopping centers and supermarkets accept credit cards of international banks, but visiting restaurants is better with cash.
9. Those tourists, who plan to make international phone calls, are recommended to purchase a special LADATEL card. You can use it in any phone booth located in the city.
10. Hotel staff, tour guides and taxi drivers should be awarded with a small reward. A sum of 1 - 2 pesos will be enough.
11. Jewelry should be purchased in special stores only. Crafts and jewelry, which are offered by traders on the beaches of the city, are usually not of the best quality.

Mexico: travelling advices

3. You should not criticize religion or argue about faith with locals, most of whom are devout Catholics - this can greatly offend a person and make him/her your enemy.
4. Drinking water other than the one sold in bottles at almost every corner should be avoided - there is a high risk of getting an upset stomach and spoiling your vacation.
