I read about this place being off the beaten path, and it certainly was. Our taxi driver even got lost on the way up there. At the very least, it's worth going up there for the panoramic aerial views of acapulco. It was also really nice to get away from crowds of people. Be sure to ask your taxi driver to wait for you or it may be a long time before you catch another one.

The Palma Sola Archeological Zone is relatively knew, and unusual for the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Many people have heard of ruins and special archeological attractions in inland Mexico, or along the water in the state of Quintana Roo - but Acapulco? What you see at this site are rock carvings, dating back thousands of years. There might be 25, 30 or more. The site is lightly visited, mostly because many people don't know how to get tere (including local residents). The site is on the side of the mountain, and the climb can be steep at times. The paths and large boulders where you find the carvings are well-marked. You get to the site by taking a micro bus which you catch from across the street from Sanborn's on the Costera (near the Zocalo plaza) or by taxi. Taxi is probably the best way to go, and the cost shouldn't cost more than MX$30-40 (US$3-4).
