ABOUT ACAPULCO, MEXICO....
What is now known as Acapulco spent its first 2000 years as a quiet Indian village. The Spanish explorer Cortez arrived in 1530 and established Acapulco ('place of the giant reeds') as a major trading port and shipbuilding center. When Mexico severed most of its trading links with Spain following its independence, Acapulco declined for more than a century, then revived as an international tourist destination in the late 1930's.
