The church on the ever popular 5th Avenue. It is well worth a look and it is a nice break from all of the tourist shopping. While it is a very nice church, I wouldn't make a special trip just to see the church.

Small, but really beautiful, if you take a walk by the 5th, you really have to take a look into this peacemaker little church.

A full house with a lot of the congregation stood outside listening to mass on the permanent speakers. A very pretty church if you are able to take a look inside.

I had seen this church on Trip Advisor before coming to Mexico, but was surprised to find this pretty church amidst bars, a bus depot, restaurants and souvenir shops. The church's doors were open, welcoming passerby, and once inside, a sign politely asked visitors to be quiet and respectful. The interior is simple, yet beautiful. The exterior is the same....

This church is very peaceful with the view behind the alter of the palm trees and the ocean. The singing was beautiful and even though we do not speak Spanish, the melodies were familiar.

A sacred place to say a prayer on bended knee. A beautiful spot for photos outside, right on the beach and a lovely space for some quiet time.
