Can I feel save in Acapulco?
Levels of violence are minimum in the city and its beaches, therefore tourists can walk without worries though, of course there are always some basic and indispensable measures to bear mind in order to make your stay perfect.
What should I do in case of an emergency?
- Leave your valuable objects, passport and other important documents at the hotel safety box.
Carry the necessary cash only and no more than one credit card when going for a ride. It is also advisable to carry a photocopy of your passport.
- If you are planning on going to some unknown place, it is recommendable to seek advice concerning safety matters firstly. Likewise, avoid going alone to solitary beaches, streets and places in general.
- Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages in public areas. On the other hand, never carry illegal substances for any reason. Mexican police is stricter than that of the United States in this aspect, and your embassy would rather not interfere when treating detention concerning drug smuggling.
It is recommended to call the following institutions: Federal Judicial Police (744) 485-2671; Tourist Police (744) 485-0490; Fire-fighters (744) 484-4122; Red Cross (744) 445-5912. Likewise, get in contact with the consulate or embassy of your country of origin when facing any emergency or problem.
