Paint for New Stucco

New stucco around a window and patio door. So about 30-40sq ft.

Stucco guy applied a one coat stucco. Looks fine.

What kind of paint should I use. Confused as to whether I should go with 100% Acrylic or this Elastomeric stuff.???

Also, should I prime or go with a self priming paint?

Opinion on how long stucco should cure? Contractor said 1 week.

I prefer to prime then paint. Zinsser 123 is suitable for priming masonry. Then paint with an exterior latex. If the contractor said one week, I guess he would know.

Hope this helps.
