Capilla de la Paz has it's own history!
Mar 2021
The chapel is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The view in this location is amazing. The history behind this place is sad and can't help to include the family in my prayer.

This place is absolutely beautiful. The views are amazing and the history behind this place is very interesting and also a beautiful story. Carlos took us here and it was one of my favorite parts of the week. Everyone should see this. It’s breath taking.

Serene and great views
Nov 2020
My cab driver bought me here for the views. This place is a catholic church perched high on the hill and overlooks the Acapulco crescent shaped bay. From the top you get to see some of the best views. The area is so quiet and was almost empty. This was great as I enjoyed the serenity. The cross is huge and reminds. You can meditate peacefully for some moments. The location is in the las Brisas resort and best to take a cab as the security at the entrance will need an ID to let you enter. They followed the Covid drill sincerely with Temperature checks and planting your shoes on bleached water. A small gift shop is available for souvenirs. Plenty of vegetation around and it is about a 20 minute cab ride from the main beach of Acapulco and on the way to the airport.

Chapel of Peace - Acapulco
Feb 2020 • Friends
This was a beautiful chapel in a gated neighborhood. I think you have to go with a tour group to gain entrance. It sits high above the city so it offered scenic panoramic views of Acapulco. The story of the family that built this chapel is intriguing. If visiting, I would plan to spend about an hour here.

A lovely spot and the history is very interesting. This was constructed as a family chapel and one sibling still lives here. The chapel itself is non-denominational so all are welcome to visit and to pray. Worth a visit.

Located in the super exclusive neighborhood of Acapulco.
Mar 2020 • Couples
The cross and adjacent “temple” was built in honor of a wealthy woman’s two sons that died in a plane crash in Mexico. It was not meant to be specifically for any one religion.
You’ll have nice views from up there and also pass through a couple of checkpoints.

It’s nothing super special but you’ll surely see the ritzy houses up there.
Acapulco was one of the movie stars favorite places 40 and 50 years ago.
Now, it’s kind of off the map!

View was amazing!

Our guide said this is the 4th best view in the world, and I see why. It is spectacular! It is worth the short drive from town. Very peaceful and many beautiful places for photos.
