"Call Baldo Gomez for inexpensive ACA car service!" Taxis Tip by candig4265

Taxis, Acapulco: 8 reviews and 9 photos

My husband and I just returned from our 2nd visit to Acapulco. Our previous visit, 2 years ago, was right before all of the "trouble" began in the area. After much worrying and contemplation, we booked flights to go again in January 2011, staying in the Grand Mayan for the second time. In short, this has been our best vacation to date. We had such a wonderful, worry-free, and beautiful trip that was packed with rest and loads of fun. With all of the problems in the area that's been on the news and online, we were extremely hesitant to leave the hotel and trust a driver. In our stay 2 years ago, we'd wave down cabs with no problem and venture anywhere. Prior to leaving for Acapulco, we booked car service with Baldo Gomez, and we will forever use his services anytime we go back! Baldo is such a warm, caring, and informative man! We expressed our worries about leaving the resort, even to go shopping at Wal-Mart for provisions. He relieved any stresses we had. He even had one of his drivers, Raphael, come into the store with us to help us shop! On another car ride with Baldo on our first day, he told us that if we requested to go to a place that was in a "bad area" he would let us know. He also told us to feel free to call him to ask about any excursions we planned on doing if we had any concerns (highly recommend taking a boat to see the cliff divers!). He is such a wonderful family man and we honestly felt like we were waving good-bye to a family member as we walked into the airport to return home! Email to book him prior to departing at He is fully insured and has proof of all, unlike what most of the drivers will tell you. His prices are the same as taxis - even better if you use him more than once! Overall, this trip was once again an A+++... We can't wait to go back next year!
