Discover the best kept secret in Acapulco and enjoy what “Lonely Planet” classifies as “must see” places in Acapulco:
The Quebrada, the San Diego Fort and the Acapulco Botanical Garden.

The Acapulco Botanical Garden is a nonprofit organization.

It is beautiful all year round, due to the mild semi-tropical climate with its native and introduced flora; but what makes it spectacular, is its huge granite boulders that are quite a sight!

There are well-marked footpaths that climb from 204 m. to 411 m. above sea level through a shaded tropical forest, with benches to rest, and enjoy the scenery. 

There are 2 manmade water falls & several ponds, which the fauna also enjoys; and the Botanical Center is at the top where you will find different facilities.

However, this year an elevator was installed for those with any type of disability, or the ones who just want to enjoy the ride, the beautiful scenery of the Acapulco Bay, and walk on the connecting bridge from the elevator to the Garden Center among tree tops.
