The second leg of our “Acapulco Historical Tour with Divers Show” revealed a captivating experience. Initially built in 1616, thanks to the Spanish Empire, the fort was widely affected by an earthquake in 1776. Then, it was demolished and fully rebuilt in 1783.
Nice display of history inside rooms under fort. Reminder that the world is changing fast now. The ship replicas really remind me of what it must have been like to travel then. Love Patrick O'Brian's master and commander series so the fort is awesome.
Fort San Diego is a beautiful fort placed at front of Acapulco’s bay, we enjoy 2 hrs visiting the fort and the museum. Seems to be very strong to defend the port from pirates attacks in the past. My grandsons enjoy the visit too much.
Easily accessible by taxi, foot or bridge (if you're coming in a cruise) the Fuerte de San Diego is one of the most important places in Acapulco. It serves as a history museum of the port and it contains important pieces connecting Asia and America....More
They are closed on Mondays. Go early before it gets hot (open at 9am) and do the outdoor top part first. The views are great up there. Do the indoor air-conditioned parts last. Admission is 60 pesos/$3.22 US

As far as I remember, yes. Sometimes, when you don't have a handicap, it is sad to say, you don't notice. Most of the area is cobblestone and uneven. I remember some of the rooms had ramps for the displays. The parking lot was loose stones and uneven. The views are great from outside the building.

Question re: El Fuerte de San Diego (14 Replies)
As we understand it ... Whenever there's a cruiseship in port, the Fort opens up on Mondays (a day on which it is normally closed). Our question is this: If there's a ship in port, on a Monday ... from 7:00 'til 14:00, can it automatically be assumed that the Fort will be open for those travelers? AND - even though the ship leaves port @ 14:00 - will the Fort remain open (for other tourists) for the remainder of the afternoon - or close up "early"? Thanks ... RonVal51
