On the Pacific side of Acapulco where the hills and mountains meet the sea, a road follows the shore past Sinfonia del Mar - literally Symphony of the Sea. It is an amphitheater built into - or carved out of - a mountain promontory, affording a fabulous view of the Pacific as it meets the mountains of Acapulco. Near the top of the amphitheater is a mermaid statue and a dolphin. map
The mermaid statue was created by sculptor Marco Rivero and was installed in this location in 2006.
The location is famous not only for the symphonies staged regularly in the amphitheater, but also for its spectacular sunsets.
