Took a day tour of Acapulco and this place was on the list. Pricing is listed at the front of the hotel for all trips.

All the taxi drivers speak English some better than others but are courteous. Only authorized drivers pick up and drop off at hotel.

Fantastic views of Acapulco bay. This chapel had a very moving history behined its construction that really touched me. Great place for some peace and quiet and contemplation. A small donation is required but its no problem and is well worth it.

Me and my girlfriend had walked up to this cathedral from our hotel which was a nice walk and felt a good sense of satisfaction as we came to the cathedral.. The views from here are amazing and the building is nice.. The giant cross makes this place somewhat of a landmark for Acapulco and I'm glad we had visited..... More

Nice view of Acapulco Bay. The Chapel is very nice inside. Seats look like metal but they are made of wood. The windows are in the shape of triangles made from I think Onyx so light come through. The floors are made from stones. It has to be kept very clean as it is very hard to clean.
