    great place and out of time. the pueblo is located on a mesa from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view. It is true that once inside the Indians try to sell you all sorts of things, but you are not forced to fainting. was certainly one of the most beautiful views we had in new mexico

    Our first stop after flying into New Mexico, we were in awe of the landscape, rich history and friendliness found at Acoma. Well worth the visit, from Santa Fe or Albuquerque. There are a lot of venders to buy potter and other objects from. I highly recommend waiting till the end of the tour to go back with the buying guide. There is a wide range of craftsmanship and skill on display. The prices are much better then in the galleys in major city's. Also you know you are getting an authentic price directly from the artist. Bring cash, some venders take card, but signal on the mesa can be tricky. Prices start around $10 for the smaller mold made pottery. They can jump into the hundred quickly with quality work. I suggest looking up Acoma Pueblo patters and pottery before going to give you an idea of what you will see and are interred in. We picked up a extremely detailed, coiled, seed pot (pics attached) from Bernadette Ascencio. If you are able take the steep hand carved stairs back down. This part is not for people who don't like hights. However it is once in a lifetime experience, not to be missed. Make shore to get your photo permit, since shooting without one is not allowed. It is still home to many folks so be observant and respectful.

    Amazing! If you are interested in Native American culture, this is a must visit location! Also, if you are in good enough shape, take the rock stairs down ; you will be rewarded with awesome views!

    Beautiful landscape. You have to experience the Pueblo life yourself to appreciate it...

    Was there in the early '80s. don't recall any tours at the time but folks were always friendly. Working for Mt Bell at the time I interacted with miners, ranchers and Navajo as well as Laguna-Acoma. Puebla folks were generally the most welcoming. Sky City, as I knew it, was called the oldest continuously occupied settlement in North America. Beautiful drive and very nice.
