=Over the years baby boomers from Canada and the US have lenthened their stays in Acapulco until for four months of the year playa Bonfil is converted into little Canada.=
At midnight Oct 25 a category 5 hurricane made landfall over Acapulco. There was no evacuation; the strength of the hurricane was unexpected. Hours earlier Otis had been a tropical storm.
That night, one million Acapulcanos sheltered in place and watched their doors, windows, laminas and pets disappear into the dark.
Fifty bodies were recovered. Fifty more remain missing. Many of the missing were on liveaboards docked at the marina.
from Milenio, Nov 12 2023 (translated)
=At playa Bonfil the intense surf caused by the hurricane devoured the whole beach and undermined the foundations of its 40 restaurants and 20 small hotels. For two kilometers the beach was consumed by the fury of this natural phenomenum=
Some see the death and destruction as an act of God. Some see development disrespecting nature.
Stay on the path and off the dune grass please.
