“Nice view and informative - and had A/C! :-)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

The fort is a nice little musuem, that offers good views over the bay.
The museum is well set out and well labelled, with most wording in spanish and english.
All the rooms are air conditioned as well, which makes it a nice retreat from the heat outside, and lets u take your time reading and absorbing the information.

“Historic Acapulco site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Most people are not aware of the important history of Acapulco, a Spanish gate to the Orient from the Americas since the 1600.
You learn about "La Nao de China" the Spanish Galleons that went to Phillipines and the pirates that attacked them. Very interesting.
