This was a recommended side "drive by" on our city tour. It is on the rough side of town, but the mural is awesome. They plan to open a museum in the future. This will be so worth viewing, once it opens. For now, all you can do is drive by and see a mural. If you are a fan... More

Our guide Rudy and Sergio explained the history of this place. The murals are made of hundreds of tiles, they were colorful beautiful art of mosaics. It was one of a kind that I had ever seen.

The mural alone is nice but I wouldn't recommend making a special trip up there to look at them. It's not even in a very good neighborhood so unless you have a tour guide who can take you there safely, don't bother. But if the house behind the wall is really turned into a museum showcasing the art, then that's... More

To go to Acapulco and not see this is like not seeing the divers. Really interesting/weird but just do it.

Our family of four stopped at this mural as part of an Acapulco City Tour by Sebastian Hernandez from acapulcoforall.com We were very glad to have Sebastian drive us there because it is on a narrow road in a residential area...I don't think there would be easy public transportation, nor would you want to drive there yourself. We got out... More

This mural is very cool--it is colorful and pops out, and it has shiny parts, and it is very majestic. It is also quite large. We visited the mural as part of our tour with Sebastian, and this was the part that made me especially thankful that we decided to do a tour and not just try to see things... More

Our tour guide Sebastian from Acapulco for All Private Day tours took us here. He explained the whole story about how this mural came to be. I don't think the visit would have been as good without him. Look him up! The mural is impressive and well maintained. Worth a look!

Apparently this was created towards the end of his life, and is a mosaic rather than painted mural (good thing because its exposed to the weather). It is on the outside on a house which looks like abandoned for decades and is apparently for sale, if you want to own a piece of history. Worth a look if you are... More

Sebastian personalized the City Highlights tour by taking us to the mural and providing us with the rich history of its origin. The mural by itself is beautiful and the rich history of its orgin fascinating. This was not a drive-by and look-through-the-window tour; Sebastian stopped and we had an extended visit walking the 200ft length of the mural while... More

Beautiful work which still looks as bright and meticulous since its creation. More work is currently being done to establish the house as a museum.
