Your knowledgeable and reliable tour guide will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel. Once on board the excursion, you will drive up the hills of Acapulco learning about the lifestyle of the working class of Mexico, and general information about the country.
After a visit to Palma Sola that will not last less than one hour and a half, the tour will head to the Mercado Municipal: a really eye-opener! This large Mexican market is fascinating. There will be so much to see—dry goods, housewares, gorgeous flowers, candy, live roosters, fresh produce and much more. Many stalls feature health care products, which were a combination of herbal remedies and Santeria like - Witch Doctor - type spells and prayers to saints. One of these stalls has a cage full of large live bugs and animals whose purpose you´d prefer not to ask about.
After the market, your friendly guide may stop in a place for you to have lunch (not included) or you will be taken back to your hotel.

Excellent tour. Highly recommend it. Very informative and interesting.
Roger our guide was extremely friendly, personable and highly knowledgable. The petroglyphs were amazing and set in the most beautiful forest. The market tour was a fun and interesting look at Mexican culture and their way of life. As a bonus we even received a YouTube video of our tour and a slide show of all the pictures our guide had taken during the tour! Great tour and highly recommend!
