  'Beetle' taxi
by bellagio

Getting around Acapulco is great fun. The so-called Disco buses run from Walmart along the Costera right into the old town and cost 3.5 pesos per person. The 'Beetle' taxis, of which there seem to be millions, will take you anywhere. Make sure you negiotate the rate with the driver before you get in. It should cost you no more than 20 pesos to go along the bay and 30 pesos to go to see the divers at La Quebrada. There are larger American type taxis, probably equipped with air-conditioning, which I understand are two or three times more expensive than the Beetles, but I did not use them.
