Acapulco, Mexico

Soy Pisano!


This place is one of the wildest places I have ever been too. Non-stop parties and house music at 10 am will keep every spring breaker partying their asses off. If you are looking to get wild and loose five years off your life, there is no better place to do it than Acapulco. I stayed at the Copacabana Hotel the first time I went and La Playa Suites the second. I would not recommend these hotels for any couple looking to escape the pressure of the real world and relax, especially during the months of March, April and May. Did I mention I went there for two spring breaks? 2 spring breaks x 5 to 10 years of life =I hope I see 30.

Acapulco is home to some of the largest clubs in the world. El alebrje has stadium designed seating that makes you feel like a NFL player when you enter the floor. However, In order to get a table you must purchase several bottles and give a generous tip. Don't give your whole tip at once because later in the night the servers will be looking for more money. Don't be fooled by their kindness because as soon as you run out of money they will be more than happy to put another group of people in your place. The music, dancers, horns and light display is enough to make you feel like your at a rave on Jupiter.

Check out a quick video of elalebrije.

When your in Acapulco you can do everything from swimming with dolphins to Bungee jumping. If you know me at all you can imagine what I chose to do on my spare time. The bungee jumping is not owned by worl renown AJ Hackett. However, they use all of the Hackett equipment Many of the men working on the platform have been jumping their whole life so it is reassuring. After a few drinks at a near by tavern, a friend and I decided to go bungee jumping right then and there. They were closed when we got there because the elevator shaft wasn't working. Fortunately, my Spanish was fluent enough to convince the guys that we were good people and if they let us climb up we wouldn't tell anybody. Those amigos let us climb up the 42 meter stairwell and proceed to jump off the top. Check out the video.

So much for not telling anyone.
