Acapulco's archeology sites prove that the city is about more than beaches. Mexico’s history is on view at the Palma Sola archeological site, located in the Veladero National Park, where visitors will find 2,000-year-old petroglyphs.
At this site, 18 granite boulders of all types and sizes display the carvings of deities, rituals, human forms, pyramids, animals, and other elements of daily life of the regions's ancient inhabitants.
Petroglyphs can also be found at La Sabana, a smaller site. These rock carvings date between 1200 B.C. and 750 A.D. and were created using chiseling, abrading, and scoring techniques.
