Museo Historico De Acapulco Fuerte De San Diego Reviews & Ratings
Awesome museum. Costs $4 American, and was super fun. The signs are all in Spanish and English. One of the best things to do straight across from the port.
More history about old world Mexico. Very informative. And there's a small Tamayo art gallery. Reminded me of the fort under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Really nice place to visit. A lot of history and great view from top. On sundays entrance is free for everyone
My wife and I took a cruise-ship excursion tour of the Fort. We enjoyed the tour a great deal. I would recommend the Fort to tourists interested in the history of the Americas, seeing artifacts from the Spanish conquest, and those who love a good view of an interesting city.
The fort is a good easy stop, I would reccomend seeing it before you get back on your ship as it is a short walk away. The signs are written in both spanish and english, you can walk on top of the walls and take spectacular photos of the skyline.
