So after about 10 minutes into the first dive I thought.... I've dove
worse!  We weren't expecting much and were pleasantly surprised with the
diving in Acapulco.  The diving is done around rock formations, no coral to
speak of.  Fair amount of fish.  Saw a huge eel and several spotted eagle
rays.  The thermocline was very evident.  My wife was freezing in her 3 mm
and had to stay above the thermocline.  Beautiful place.  I got to fulfill
a lifetime dream of cliff diving in Acapulco and the professional show is
not to be missed. Food is very expensive.  The Grand Mayan is close to the
airport and was over 1.5 hour drive to diving.  Swiss Divers would pick you
up at your hotel but we had a car.  Recommend a rental car, just watch out
for the crazy drivers.  The Grand Mayan is an incredible resort and would
definately recommend.  Swiss Divers were great.  The friendly staff took
great care of us and really went out of their way to show us a good time. 
I wouldn't go to Acapulco specifically to dive but if you go it's
definately worth packing your gear!
