About This Image

These VW Beetles are everywhere, in Acapulco and weave in and out of the traffic lanes to get to their destination in record time.
When Germany stopped producing the beetles, I believe, the license was taken over by Mexico to carry on making them. They're very distinctive with their blue markings and bold, black numbers; this one was parked outside of a hotel after dropping passengers off.

Thanks for looking. :)

Thank you for commenting Julie and Chriss. Unfortunately, I didn't get a ride in one of these 'Herbie' cars....although there were plenty about.

Thanks for commenting Tania. The streets of Acapulco certainly looked like a race track, with all the taxis in the same colour livery! :)
