Acapulco Mountain Resort

ACAPULCO

its my time off from work and I make it a point that I get to jog early in the morning. my friend sherwin mentioned about an old abandoned resort hotel here in baguio city called acapulco. he is not sure where it is but he said that its near outlook drive so I went on a jog to find it! upon arriving at outlook drive I asked the locals about acapulco and they said that it is located way way down the mountain. I asked myself, where the hell is way way down the mountain? so I decided to walk instead. after asking several people for the right direction and after a 8 km walk, I finally reached acapulco! was it worth? yes because I love old buildings. after reaching the place I felt like I was on the movie “THE SHINING” where I was stuck all alone in a resort hotel. god, I love that movie. I love horror films. and because the place is really old, at one point I felt like im watching one of my favorite tv series “SCARIEST PLACES ON EARTH” and I ended up ghost hunting instead.

now, before I took these pictures I asked permission from the caretaker. he said that after the 1990 killer earthquake the management decided to close the resort instead and I think this property is for sale.

notice that there are two shadows in the background. the one on the left is obviously my shadow taking a picture using my right hand and the one the right is another shadow which is obviously not mine. its like a shadow of a girl!

and now the pool…
