    A torrential three-day downpour has flooded Acapulco airport causing chaos and stranding some of the 40,000 tourists visiting Mexico's famous beach resort.

    Eventually when the rains eased some flights were able to take off. Those getting away were leaving behind them hotels where food was in short supply and had to be rationed and cash machines failed to work due to power cuts.
