Herb is relaxed, too.

First stop on the City Tour was the La Paz Chapel, which overlooks Acapulco Bay from 1200 foot altitude.
(See Google Earth views for location of the Chapel and views to be seen from there.)

Next to the chapel is "Las Manos de la Hermandad" by Cloudio Favier

Built in the 1930's, Johnny Weissmuller and other Hollywood stars were frequent visitors.

Not far from Hotel Los Flamingos, we wend our way down to the famous cliffs for the 1 p.m. dives.

The gang stands on a lookout at the top of the stairs down to the diving area.
Note the two blue prayer stations near the top of the cliff from which the divers soar.
