The Acapulco Fair
The Acapulco Fair sets up in the Convention Center every year during the Christmas holidays. It runs from a week
before Christmas to the week after the New Year. There are many rides for kids and adults, however, there aren't any
major roller coasters. The rides reminded me of the fairs from the 80's - there was one called "Starship 2000" and one
with glamorous airbrushings of Mel Gibson and Michael Jackson.
There also have all the usual carnival games and prizes and
over a thousand vendors (I got trapped in the shopping maze and couldn't find an exit for an hour). The fair is
cheap and fun, and a great place to take the kids if you visit Acapulco over the New Year.
