Acapulco, Sinaloa Mexico, was once one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world.
Today, it holds the distinction of the murder capital of Mexico.
The reason? The State Department says it well: “One of Mexico’s most powerful criminal organizations is based in the state of Sinaloa, and violent crime rates remain high in many parts of the Sinaloa.”
Americans are asked to defer all non-essential travel to large parts of the following states: Coahuila, Guerrero, Michoacán, Nayarit, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Colima, where violent an powerful drug groups control parts of their territory and often engage in violent battles with rival gangs and government forces.
This battle has been going on over 10 years now and there seems to be no end in sight.
The citizens of Mexico continue to go there. But foreign tourism is virtually gone.
In fact, the port of Acapulco saw six Canadian and one American cruise ship stop there in 2015.
A far cry from the hundreds of cruise ships annually during Acapulco’s peaceful times.
What is a timeshare owner to do if they own an Acapulco timeshare?
If you’re going to keep it, you will have to exchange it. Unless you want to run the risk of getting caught in the crossfire between cartel and military violence.
