Very worthwhile to see if you are an art lover. You would need a knowledgable driver. Located in the Qeubrada

This was a quicky...on the way to other places...it's a fun romantic story to go with a cool looking wall art mosaic . Not a high light, but good for a quick 5 minute stop

This mosaic by Diego Rivera is a must to see. Our driver Sebastian with Acapulco For All took us by there and it was so beautiful.

Beautiful mural, stopped long enough to take a few pictures while on our ship's tour. Can't believe it's just out there like that where anyone could walk up and take pictures, really enjoyed seeing this.

I hear you can get private tours of the house but don't know who does it. Friends of our got a private tour. Supposedly the government has bought it and will be making it open to the public soon,
