“excellent but best viewed with a guide”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Unless you have read up on Aztec and Mayan culture this mural will not mean much to you unless you know what each character means and why he put the snake, the frog, his initials, and his reason for during the mural. I recommend a tour guide to add meaning to the mural.

“with a view”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

It's a fair walk up a steady but not insurmountable incline to get there but worth it in my opinion. Take a bus along Av Costera to the park by all the fishing boats and turn up Calle Casa Blanca next to the Pemex and then keep walking. There are some great views on the way up, including out of the multiple levels of a well-cool abandoned palace. the mural is nice to see.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This mural is not to be missed. Find a knowledgable taxi driver take you there. I can't stop thinking about it.

“Amazing Artwork and History”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful tile artwork that could be viewed on the wall outside this house!! We loved it even more as the history was explained by our wonderful tour guides - Benjamin and Roberto Alarcon. The mural was so much more interesting once you know the meaning behind all the characters Rivera chose and why. Be sure to notice the beautiful ceiling murals inside as well - gorgeous!!

“Historical Heritage and Contemporary Architecture”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I truly love the Diego Rivera Wall Mural Mosaic but what really made it special was the love story behind the masterpiece, which Sebastian shared with us...(everyone loves a good love story). "The House of the Wind” that expressed his love, appreciation of the generosity, friendship, and love that he had experienced through his lifetime.
