  Capital: Chilpancingo
State Population:

Guerrero is an extremely mountainous state located along the southern coast of Mexico. The state was named after Vicente Guerrero, one of the revolutionary leaders in the war against Spain.

The climate in Guerrero is mostly tropical with a rainy season in the summer and fall. Cooler temperatures are experienced in the higher elevations, especially at the highest point in Guerrero, Sierra Madre del Sur.

The only part of Guerrero where the mountains do not dominate is a narrow coastal strip that features hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches. Along this coastline are numerous resorts. Tourism is what drives the economy of Guerrero. The 3 major areas of tourism in Guerrero are known as the Triangulo del Sol, or the triangle of the sun. The first is Taxco, an inland colonial town famous for its silverwork. The second is Acapulco, one of the most well-known resort cities in Mexico. The third is Ixtapa / Zihuatanejo which is the combination of a small traditional fishing village with a resort fully designed and constructed by the Mexican government. If you’re idea of a dream vacation involves sun, sand and surf, then the Triangulo del Sol is your paradise!
