Acapulco - time to snap up a second home bargain

Recommended Posts

Relatives of mine went to Acapulco about 40 years ago - at the time they had to have armed hotel guards to protect them if they went outside of the resort. Armed guards also patrolled the hotel boundary and kept an eye on the beach. They had a fab time though by all accounts O.o

But, never having gone there mysel, I ended up hating the place due to those endless property programmes where Brits go to buy a house or second home overseas. For a while it seemed that nearly every week they were doing a programme on Brits buying homes in Acapulco. I can clearly recall one lovely blue house over-looking the sea that simply looked a delightful place to live. It had pinkish terracota pots hanging outside full of the most beautifully coloured flowers.

Having just watched a Sky News report on Acapulco I now learn that it is a war zone with the US government advising tourists to stay away from the area - apparently the tourist iindustry collapsed some months ago.

I wonder what happened to those people who bought holiday homes there?

 

Acapulco: The resort killed by drugs, guns and gangs

Quote

The American government has issued a stark warning to all potential tourists to Mexico: "Don't go."

It comes after the country revealed nearly 30,000 people were murdered last year - the highest number in 20 years.

The CIA says the violence levels are comparable with the war zones of Iraq and Syria.

The resort city of Acapulco, a former playground of the rich and famous, is now at the centre of a crime wave that has swept across the country. Extortion, kidnapping and murder are daily events.

Heavily armed police on patrol in Acapulco.

      Just in case India and Pakistan do kick things off heralding the end of the world and forcing DOSBODers to turn to their baked bean stash, we may as well have a thread about the brotherly love between India and Pakistan.
      When they no longer had the British to hate they appear to have realised that they hate one another.

      Looks like the war there is hotting up. Clearly a proxy for wider Sunni vs Shia; KSA vs Iran.
      Like every derby game at the footie, tackles going in hard and someone may end up with a bloody nose.
      How will it all turn out?

      This is a shocking story on Zerohedge. It is detailed so best to go have a look at the below link and read the article. Be warned, there are some images of people lying on the ground and the ground covered in blood.
      However, thankfully, there are no photos of the most horrific part of this story - that a baby was beheaded during the attack.
      Yes, you read that right.
      Apparently people who videod the after-math had the heavy hand of the German State, courtesy of the German Police, come down heavy on them for uploading the video online.
      Thankfully, a German newspaper decided to run with the story. There is at least one Western newspaper editor who can see the dangers coming towards us all.
      Germany: 'Decapitating' Freedom Of The Press?
      Zerohedge is reposting the story, with photos, here:

      It originally was published here - without any graphic images;
