It was as peaceful as it sounds and so much different than the usual chapel in Mexico, very modern, very quiet and had a 360 view of the bay

The chapel is on a mountain overlooking Acapulco bay. The view is breathtaking. We attended a family wedding here and found it to be a perfect spot for this kind of event.

A very peaceful place. The views are breathtaking, and a 30 minutes walk around will make you feel good with yourself for choosing this visit. The houses around are VERY expensive, and supposedly famous narcos lived, and still live, near by.

This is the perfect place to visit early in the morning, at the time that there is no one in site. It is the perfect place to sit back, take a deep breath and relax and meditate. The views of the bay from up above are phenomenal. This is a must see in Acapulco
