Day five of the adventure and it is off to play golf in Acapulco. A nice hot and steamy Mexican day bit we are prepared for the heat!
The day was beautiful with no rain but hot weather. It made for drinking beer!
The course was lush and green and prepared to swallow all the balls we could heave into the multiple lakes and streams around the course!
Acapulco's beautiful natural bay is the focal point of much of the activity in this world-class resort area, but there is much to see and do throughout the city.
Acapulco is a vibrant resort that also provides tranquility to those who desire a slower pace.
Arriving In Acapulco
Our neighbor was there first
Pulling into port
Everybody is geeting ready to get off the ship
We are pointed to the harbor and ready to go
Here is the real Captain
...and her trusty assistant
Golf Is A Few Minutes Away
There are a variety of golden and white sand beaches, each with its own unique character and appeal.
You can enjoy everything from sun-bathing to sport fishing to parasailing to catamaran cruises to snorkeling to windsurfing.
A visit to this tropical playground should include a stop at world famous La Quebrada, where divers plunge 136 feet off of the rugged cliffs into a perilous, narrow cove.
Us.. we took golf as the escape form the ship! And as escape it was!

Everything is green
Sue was enjoying the course
Hot and humid... But a nice breeze
The lakes were difficult to navigate
We are almost in the tropics
Nice winter legs
The birds were getting an excellent laugh
We had a visitor
Yes... She is glowing... It was just plain hot
View from the beach house bar
No wonder it was so wet
