Full description
After collection from your accommodation, the first stop is San Diego Fort, one of the historical highlights of Acapulco. Housing a fine museum with air-conditioned and well-lit rooms depicting the main themes of the trans-Pacific trade, its 8-foot-thick walls contain unique and interesting professional exhibits that depict life in another era. This museum focuses on the era of the Manila Galleons, which came here yearly for 250 years. The exhibit rooms are arranged chronologically. After you leave the Fort, you’ll head to the domed cathedral, built in 1936 in a Moorish style. The statue on the left tower is of San Felipe de Jesús, Mexico’s first saint. The group will also make a shopping stop where you will enjoy beers, margaritas and sodas. Just past the monument, beneath the statue of a diver and between two cannons, you’ll have a spectacular view of the open Pacific. The stairway leads down to the viewing platforms where you can watch the world-famous cliff divers.

    The experience was incredible, and wouldn’t have been as enjoyable if it weren’t for the fantastic tour guides (A man named José Mario and his wife). The Fort of San Diego featured beautiful architecture and fascinating artifacts that were rich with culture and history. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the history of not only the fort, but Mexico too. They also took us through the main plaza in Acapulco, stopping along the way for refreshing and freshly squeezed juice. Our last stop was La Quebrada. Here, we were able to witness the brave cliff divers dive from soaring heights as they acrobatically flipped through the air and gracefully landed in the crystal clear turquoise water. Every step along the way, the two tour guides, a husband and wife, were always ready to lend a helping hand, whether by offering water or providing information on the city. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which was only enhanced by the gracious tour guides.
