Our taxi driver, born and raised in Acapulco, told us that the majority of the locals never seen it!..., not sure if it is true, but we visited the gorgeous mosaic built mural on a Saturday afternoon, and there was not a soul around. Can't imagine how such a beautiful piece of art can be left totally unattended and expose... More

This incredible mosaic mural is at the home where Diego Rivera lived in his final years with his girlfriend. I believe the home is open to the public where you can see the studio she set up for him there. It is on the way to the place to see the cliff divers, so take a moment to stop at... More

This is a nice, big mural that it must have taken hours to do. Although, it is a shame that some parts of it are ruined. From the information we received from our guide - a millionaire/government bought it and will be renovating it soon. What are they waiting for?

Not really too much of an art fan, but it's definitely pretty and quite large. The mural consists of thousands of tiny tiles glued to a wall to create different images with various meanings behind them. I would not have gotten as much out of the visit without my local guide Sebastian Hernandez explaining it all to my wife and... More

We drove by this mural. Actually stopped to take pictures, but didn't stay long. Ok if you are driving by, but wouldn't pay extra money to make it a "stop" on my itinerary.

It is a great Diego Rivera mural, and like most Diego Rivera murals, it has great complexity and variant interpretations. I am glad we saw it, but I don't think I will include it on my next trip to Acapulco. It's kind of a "once you've seen it, you probably don't need to see it again" sort of thing (unless... More

So much history here! In the old part of Acapulco, off the beaten track. But so hysterical! It is too bad that it is such need repair... lots of tiles missing. But still gorgeous.

We decided to stop off on our last day in the city and ride around and walk to some of the things we wanted to see. The Diego murals were something we had not done in quite some time. Just so stunning the work that went into this. If your near quebrada an easy walk and also very close to... More

It was very interesting to view this mosaic, especially after reading the history of how and why it was done, and the relationship between Diego and Lola (Dolores Olmedo) who owned the property. We liked walking up to the house (it is hot and steep in parts) because it gave us a better feel for the location: a mega-rich person's... More
