Fun in Acapulco, Sun Drenched Design!

There is such an insane abundance of Great Mexican Design, 
that it's unfortunate it so often doesn't get it's due.
Expect several future posts on this Country - but for today it's all
 about Acapulco.
Bold Statements, Strong Oversized Silhouettes, 
Casual and Comfortable - these are just some of the key 
elements you'll immediately notice when delving into this 
Design Style.  To get you going,  go ahead and click on
 the Elvis song below from "Fun in Acapulco"....  
and enjoy his fancy footwork while playing
                                           the organ, yes, I said organ!

Bigger is often better in Mexican design and though he's
a Californian, this Stan Bitter's sculpture would fit right into
the landscape!

Their are just so many cool hotels in this city. This shot is from the lobby of the "Acapulco Fairmont Princess Hotel".  I'm totally in love with the stone walls.

Grupo Habita - the Hoteliers that revitalized the "Boca Chica" bringing it back
to it's Heyday status from the 1950's.
