The beachgoers were walking along the picturesque sands of Condesa, one of the most popular stretches of coast in the city, when they made the grisly find on Saturday afternoon.

One of the bodies had its hand and foot tied to a cement anchor.

The second was lying face-up in the sand.

State prosecutors were alerted and removed the bodies, but kept the beach open.

The following morning, a third body was discovered just two kilometres away on Icacos beach.

Navy agents said the body was found close to a military base in the area, reports El Pais.

The man had gunshot wounds to the back of his neck.

Acapulco is one of Mexico’s oldest beach resorts and became known as a hotspot for the Hollywood elite between the 1940s and 1960s.

Glamorous stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, and Brigitte Bardot holidayed in the fashionable resort, and in 1963, the Elvis Presley film “Fun In Acapulco” was produced.

However, the city’s glamorous past is far behind, and in 2019 it was listed as the seventh-deadliest city in the world.

In 2016, it had the highest homicide rate in the world, with 918 murders.

The city’s entire police force was disarmed two years later by the military over suspicions it had been infiltrated by drug cartels.

On Sunday, the same day the third body was found, a shootout broke out in a hotel car park close to the city’s port.

At least 18 shell casings were discovered near the Calinda Beach hotel, with three vehicles involved in the gun battle.

No one was injured, but soldiers, national guards, and police officers from both the state and tourist forces were scrambled to the scene.

Today, very few international visitors travel to Acapulco, with the vast majority of tourists being Mexican.

The city’s abysmal reputation has shown no signs of improving, with more than 120 murders in the first four months of 2022 alone.

Just two months ago, Acapulco’s Secretary of Municipal Public Security, Adrian Olivas Perez, declared that crimes related to gangs had decreased in September compared to the same time last year.

But kidnappings and extortions of businessmen in the area remain common.
