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,

Beautiful mural, but without knowing the significance of the images, it is just a beautiful mural. Our driver was able to tell us the story behind the mural which made it much more meaningful.

You need to see it with your own eyes. Hard to give it perspective on a picture. In my own opinion, finding this gem up on the cliffs of Acapulco is as rewarding as enjoying the mosaics of Gaudi in Barcelona's Guell Park. There are also interesting paintings ans murals inside the house. Would be great if the family would... More

It was a special treat to come around the corner in a residential neighborhood and see the stunning Diego Rivera mural. Of course we had to get out and take pictures.

if you're a mosaic art fan this is something you should go and see. It was interesting enough unfortunately is not the easiest thing to get to and to enjoy it from the window of our cab wasn't a great way to appreciate it.

I liked the fact that the palace is open for visitors. There was no fee. The work of art is truly compelling, and as one traveler remarked to me, "It shows how the Americas were settled."

This hidden treasure is not hard to find at all if you are in the vicinity of the famous cliff divers at El Quebrador next to the Hotel Mirador. This may be the most unusual Diego Rivera piece you will ever see although perhaps not his greatest. The locals keep it well maintained. Without a good understanding of Mexican culture... More

You will need a knowledgeable guide or a local person to find this mural, painted on the outside wall of an estate. Look closely and you'll see the signature of Diego Rivera.
