Centro Internacional de Convenciones Acapulco
This is an impressive 34-acre complex with a pre-Hispanic touch to the architecture. Inside, there are theatres, including the Netzahualcoyotl, Juan de Alarcón and Plaza Azteca. It is in this last theater where the Voladores de Papantla (or Flyers of Papantla) is performed (an indigenous ritual offered to the gods, hoping thus for a good harvest) and where a popular festival known as the Mexican Night is located. There are numerous and spacious function rooms that have been used for a wide variety of distinguished national and international events, including exhibitions of paintings, musical concerts, scientific conventions, seminars and exhibitions, and an annual French film festival.

last year i was in acapulco and it was the most great experience on my life! i can saw part of the french film festival and i can knew to wonderful gerard depardieu!!! the building is very nice and original, you can feel the ancient mexican culture with a touch of modernity. in fact, acapulco is the most cosmopolitan place of mexico, better than cancun. Maybe, acapulco can be consider like the miami of the pacific. i would like to return to acapulco and enjoy more of that romantic place.
