阿卡布科 太平洋之珠

位於墨西哥西南岸的阿卡布科灣(Acapulco Bay)是一個山脈環抱的海灣,又名「太平洋之珠」,水深港闊。阿卡布科灣是一個半圓形的港灣,其中一端部分得到半島掩護,使海灣免受湧浪沖擊,阿卡布科是巴拿馬和舊金山之間的海運和遊輪航線的停靠港。

在阿茲特克語中,Acapulco的意思是「大礁石的地方」。16世紀初,高戴斯率領的軍隊首次登陸阿卡布科灣,西班牙人發現這是個良港,馬上加以利用,使其成為西班牙與中國通商的主要港口。商船載了金銀定期出航,橫渡太平洋,回程時從遠東運回絲綢、瓷器、香料等等。

今天,阿卡布科以旅遊勝地著稱,但它歷史悠久,不像Cancun那樣,一夜之間從默默無聞的漁村發展成觀光地。
