Acapulco authorities report that all tourism infrastructure, including the airport, is fully operational after the 8.2 earthquake that struck the Mexican Pacific coast last week.
“Immediately after the earthquake we activated a security protocol to ensure the safety of residents and visitors. Luckily there were no fatalities and no infrastructure damage,” said Ernesto Rodriguez, Secretary of Tourism of Guerrero State. “Nevertheless, we continue to monitor any possible secondary waves and remain vigilant. Tourists with vacations planned to Acapulco don’t need to make new arrangements or cancel their trip.”
The city of Acapulco has gone to great lengths to update its tourist infrastructure. It will debut a new airport terminal by 2018 to welcome over 1.3 million visitors per year.
