Fodor's Review

Taking the name of the neighborhood closest to it, this archaeological site juts up a mountainside northeast of Old Acapulco. The area is blanketed with 2,000-year-old petroglyphs executed by the Yopes, Acapulco's earliest known inhabitants. Stone steps with intermittent plazas for viewing the ancient art are set along a path through virgin vegetation. A cave used as a ceremonial center is atop the mountain, with wonderful city views at more than 1,000 feet above sea level, and definitely worth the visit. It's about a 25-minute taxi ride from Old Acapulco.
