Our guide, Sebastain Hernandez, did a great job telling the story behind this Chapel and obviously we enjoyed the stunning view over the Acapulco Bay you have from this spot!

It is so worth the city tour to visit this chapel on the mountain top. It is rustic and very peaceful. I enjoyed the steep drive up to the top. Getting a glimpse of the beautiful homes clinging to the mountain side it worth the visit.

My teen daughter & I visited this place with our driver, Mario. Beautiful view of Acapulco; perfect for picture-taking; and peaceful & well kept chapel for all denominations. Definitely a must-see stop on what to see in Acapulco.

Gorgeous view of crescent harbor, lovely flowers and bushes adorn this lookout. Cross marker is impressive, as is the community surrounding this landmark. A don't-miss stop

This chapel is located high on a hilltop in Acapulco and it's quite a climb up several flights to reach the chapel. If you are up to that climb, don't miss it because it is truly beautiful, an aura of peace and has a lovely view of the Bay. Sunday Mass is held there if you would like to attend.

This a great place to get a birds eye-view of the city of Acapulco at ver little cost. When touring with your guide, make sure he/she brings you to visit this chapel. Great opportunity for photo shoots.
