Tour Guide: I highly recommend Jonathan Basilio for a Taxi driver and Tour Guide. He speaks fluent English, will help you in every way around Acapulco, takes you to the best sites in ONE day, will help you negotiate money, and is a true gentleman. We went to the La Quebrada Cliff Diving show, to see the countryside and downtown, see the old Hollywood area and the Flamingo Hotel, went shopping at the markets and the Silver store – Villa Artesanal, The Chapel of Peach, The Old Fort of San Diego, The Mural Diego Rivera, saw the Diamond area and beautiful homes of Sylvester Stallone and other actors that live here part-time. Call him directly at +52, 984-158-1105 and please tell him Riana sent you!

Tijon Parfumerie & Boutique – 1 L’Esperance, Grand Case, St. Maartin, FWI (tijon.com)
The Tijon Parfumerie is a boutique manufacturer/retail outlet for Tijon Fine Parfums, l’Esperance Skincare, Caribe Baie Suncare and many unique items of design. We loved coming here to create our own perfume scents and was one of our most favorite activities in St. Maartin. We worked with the owner, John Berglund, in making our own perfumes in the Mix & Match class. I had made my own perfume scent once before, many years ago, and this was an experience I wanted to repeat.
I learned a lot about how perfumes were made, and worked with 100’s of scents to create my very own, “Ravishing Riana,” (my Night scent) and “Riana’s Daylight” (Day scent). I received an educational book, many samples, a CD and and nice letter from John and his wife/Co-owner Cyndi upon my return. What fun! And I just love my special, custom perfumes!
