Why Mexican tourism is dying


Authorities say a clash between soldiers and gunmen in the Mexican resort city of Acapulco left three people dead and caused a fire that destroyed a supermarket, movie complex and stores in a shopping center. . . .


Acapulco police also found two human heads along a main avenue in the exclusive Las Brisas neighborhood.


Factions of the Beltran Leyva cartel have been fighting for control of Acapulco since the December 2009 killing of cartel boss Arturo Beltran Leyva

Acapulco used to be a popular destination. No more.
