Acapulco, as with Mexico in general, has a turbulent history. Originally a Spanish colony, the Mexican people eventually rose up in revolution and won their independent. As a result, the Spanish are treated with hostility in Acapulco and Spanish ship are often turned away at the port.
By the time Passepartout and Phileas Fogg arrive, Acapulco is being laid seige not by the Spanish but rather by the French. Ships fighting in the bay whilst airship attack the city from above. Upon arrival, you can talk to a French soldier and reveal that French attacked the city because of debt problems. The only accommodation is in one of the local garrisons.

Timetable and Pricelist Edit
French siege of Acapulco is loosely based from the real Battle of Acapulco, part of French Intervention in Mexico, where the battle was fought for the same reason. However, while the real battle ensued in 1863, the game follows alternate history where they fought the battle in 1872 instead.
