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!
