Real place.  On the Pacific half way between Acapulco and Aquila.

Yes, the name of the town is ONE OF the central plot points. Red has to remember it in order to find Andy at the end (as was comically depicted in the Family Guy episode where he doesn't remember it). So it ultimately has incredible significance to the storyline.

The names of other towns in the story are rather insignificant by comparison because none of the plot is focused on them as much.

Which town it was in Mexico (or anywhere, for that matter) isn't relevant. The fact that he had to remember the name of the town, however, IS very much relevant - and since it has a greater relevance, it's not "a minor insignificant fact" for anyone to remember it.

It's hard to argue that logic.
If he wouldn't have remembered the town then he would have never found Andy in the end!  Would the ending be good if he ended up in Mexico lost?  Hell no.
I'm more impressed he was able to find the rock in all those fields.

It's been besieged by drug trade in the last 18 months or so...literally stacking bodies on the beach
This is incorrect.

APOLOGIES IT WAS 24  MONTHS. The US Embassy in Mexico currently recommends not travelling off the resorts there still as the area is rife with carjackings and kidnappings. But again...whatever.
