By: Staff | Real Acapulco News - 09 March, 2011

(Acapulco, JG 7 March) Governor Torreblanca and Mayor Añorve were present at La Quebrada Saturday for the international high diving competition called “Real Diving Acapulco.” He was asked about the absence of “springbreakers” from the US and Canada. The governor said he missed them, but “we need to focus on the positive and not complain so much. We need to speak well of what Guerrero has to offer and point out the events that are here.” He was referring to the diving championships and also the “TV Drama Awards Presentation” by the magazine Televisa TV y Novelas, which took place later that day at the Foro Imperial in the Diamond Zone.

When asked about private sector complaints that the government has mishandled to crisis of violence, he said he respected their right of free speech, but he would keep his own optimistic vision. He said he is not looking down on foreign tourism, but the port city receives a lot of other “breakers” from places like Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, etc. “Yes, it is a shame that the spring breakers were not here, and we miss them,” he said, “but in the end we just have to talk about the positives we have here and the large number of tourists that we do receive.”
