It all began in Acapulco, where for 256 years, the Manila-Acapulco sea route was the main and privileged link between Mexico and the Philippines. From 1565 to 1821, through the Acapulco – Manila Galleon, Mexico was a key part that contributed to build the unique cultural heritage from four civilizations – Asian, European, Latin and North American – that now a days exists in the Philippines.
During the following two decades, the port became a favorite jet set destination for people like Elvis Presley, who even filmed the movie Fun in Acapulco. During the 1970s, the residential areas of Las Brisas, Brisas, Guitarron and Brisas Marquez were built, and they became home to the most luxurious houses of businessmen and Mexican and international artists. Therefore, President Miguel Aleman promoted the construction of the Carretera Escenica (Scenic Highway), linking the international airport to the city of Acapulco.
