Hello from beautiful Acapulco,
We're just having the time of our life down here... I hope you are too! We've had so many people buying and
moving down recently and a real fun community is starting to form. There aren't many nights where you can't
find one of us who isn't up for going for a drink at a beach bar.
It's not just us, it's everywhere in Acapulco. Like this article from Travel Weekly, "In Acapulco, Signs of an
Upswing". It states that in Acapulco’s Golden Zone (the prime bay area where we are located) has risen to
72.8% year to date, up from 60.7% compared with a year ago. We've seen the same thing. Our occupancy
rate is close to the average and we strongly, strongly believe that in the next year with all that we are doing
that we can get that upwards of 80%.
ENJOY THE BEST, PAY THE LEAST
One of the great things about the freedom in Mexico is that almost anything is possible. As example, for
those who really enjoy those 5 star, all inclusive hotel experiences, you can still enjoy it, very cheaply and
without even staying there. Earlier this month I took my young family to the Fairmont Princess hotel. It is
truly glorious... certainly not a place you could or would stay very long as it is too expensive and, frankly,
too far away from the city... but for a week many people enjoy it. It is acre upon acre of landscaped grounds
, swimming pools, bars and restaurants.
But, here's the amazing thing, if you just want to visit for the day and enjoy all the amenities it is only 400
pesos ($30) and that includes all you can eat and drink for the entire day and kids get in free! So, for $60
my wife and I enjoyed their amazing buffett and then left all our stuff at the table as we spent 2-3 hours at
their giant pools full of waterslides, peacocks, waterfalls and slides... the kids had the time of their life.
Then we came back to the table a few hours later where our waiter was very happy to see us and we
enjoyed the dinner buffett before finally, 8 hours after our arrival, walked off into the sunset. Everyone had a
wonderful time and we returned to AcaCondos/LTGPS where the amenities are certainly not of that caliber
but still very, very enjoyable. So, in this way, on your visit to Acapulco you can have the best of both worlds
without the expense of staying in a 5 star all-inclusive resort. We have now made it an at least once-a-month
visit to which the kids and my wife and I always look forward to.
Things just always seem to get better and better here... or, at least, for us not from Mexico who earn money
in other currencies. The Mexican Peso has performed terribly since 2008 as you can see below... and this
is vis-a-vis the atrocious US dollar!
As you can see, in 2008, the Mexican Peso hit nearly $0.10 to the dollar. But only last month it nearly hit a low
only briefly seen in 2009. It is now around $0.075 to the dollar... which, simply means, if you have US dollars -
or almost any other currency - you now can buy 30% more for your money here than you could even four years ago.
Contact James Guzman who is now the fulltime manager of AcaCondos and Las Torres Gemelas Private Suites
at firstname.lastname@example.org for more. He can also tell you all about the great investment opportunities you can
take advantage of by buying one of our units through our company Acacondos.
UNTIL NEXT MONTH
I wish you all the best and will hope to see you down here very soon. Contact James and he can tell you all
about great things like visiting the Fairmont Princess hotel you can do while you are here to make sure your
vacation is a success. Best,
