We stopped at this mosaic as part of our Acapulco city tour after the cliff diving exhibition. It was beautiful to see, but you do not need to spend a lot of time there. It is located on a hillside road, so there is traffic going by all the time. I would definitely put this attraction on a places to... More

Very near where La Quebrada is, you can found this amazing mural painting from one of the greatest muralist from Mexico of the last century, Diego Rivera. It won´t take you more than a few minutes to enjoy it. It´s not ver known, but believe me, it´s really worth it. If you are near, don´t have any doubts!

This mural is high up in the hills above the diving attraction looks like the picture honestly not worth the effort or time to get there takes much much longer driving there then you will spend. If you went to see the diving attraction you are at least in the neighborhood but still for me wasn't worth the effort

This is one of Diego Rivera's non-political murals painted for his late in life love. It is very typical of his style

Its a beautiful mural full of colour & detail. It was nice to see on a tour but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it unless you like the story behind it or you are really into this type of work!

This mosaic was so beautifully done. So different to see it among all of the other mexican buildings surrounding this artwork. I believe everyone would appreciate seeing this unique mosaic.

Absolutely beautiful mosaic. Diego Rivera made it as a marriage proposal. It is huge and the detail and colors are striking.

I was taken by surprise at how wonderful this mosaic is! I did not know what to expect but I was very impressed. The mural has an amazing story behind it and I hope you see this mural with an experienced guide. The story is amusing and also quite heart warming. It is sad that we cannot see inside this... More

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
