AcaCondos April 2014 Newsletter

Hello from Acapulco Bay,

It’s been another busy and fun month here in Acapulco. Three condo sales closed this month and we have another closing soon which we will be busy renovating.

You may have heard that there was an earthquake throughout much of central and southern Mexico on April 18th, registering a 7.5. The main areas that felt it were around Mexico City but here in Acapulco many didn’t even notice it. That was the largest earthquake in the region in decades but there was essentially no damage and no major injuries, attesting to how advanced the construction in this region of Mexico has become.

Much more noticeable was Semana Santa (Easter) which is celebrated over a two week period in April and had Acapulco full to capacity with no hotel rooms available for much of the two week period.

Here are a few of the things happening in and around Acapulco this month.

ANNUAL SAND SCULPTING FESTIVAL

A little bit of France came to Acapulco in April as, dressed in pink, hundreds of contestants spent six hours carving an array of sculptures for the event.

This year marks the 40th edition of the contest, with participants having to create their sculptures with a French twist.

As a result, many of the sculptures featured the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe in the design.

"My sculpture is based on a girl who is reminiscing about Art Deco, these details, starting with the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the fountains because there are plenty of beautiful fountains, impressive things there," said professional sculptor Jair Perez, who was taking part in Sunday's event.

You can see video of the event here:

FEATHERWEIGHT BOXING CROWN SET FOR MAY

Jhonny Gonzalez announced he will be returning to the ring to defend his world featherweight boxing title in Acapulco on May 24th.

“It’s always a pleasure to visit Acapulco and it’s a privilege to defend my world title in paradise,” said Gonzalez.

UNITS AVAILABLE

As noted last month, sales have been so brisk that we have continued to run out of inventory and are constantly sourcing units willing to sell. For this reason we no longer put individual units on our site as they have been selling as quickly as we put them up for the last few months.

For that reason, give us a call or email if you are interested in seeing what we have to offer.

We also have other units and even villas we have for offer but have not yet listed. So even if you are looking for a nice villa let us know as we have the inside line on a few of the nicest villas in Acapulco.

Until next month,
