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

We loved this visit. The view is incredible and the history of the location is mesmerizing. The chapel itself has a great sense of peace about it that you can really feel when you walk in!

If you want to get the best view of the Acapulco bay, come to the Capilla de la Paz. It is a great place to meditate, get some moments of peace and also a great opportunity to take one of the best pictures of Acapulco bay.

The Chapel of peace was built by a family that ended up having a lot of personal loss from the wife the 2 boys and then the husband soon after completion. The family still runs the attraction today.

There were no other visitors the day we went, so it truly was a chapel of peace. It was great to get an up-close view of the cross that is visible from so many locations around Acapulco. I sang in the Chapel, and the acoustics were excellent.

Las Brisas sits on the side of a mountain over looking the Acapulco Bay at first you are ah! struck at the beauty of the surrounding. The beautiful blue bay, The majestic mountains, and the world famous Acapulco strip. The hotel may be one of the oldest but it is very well keep. Service is very good and very accommodating... More

This peaceful place is a must for people visiting Acapulco. If you want to go away from the caotic world outside and in, this place will help you do so. Also the information of the family that built it is interesting. I recommend this beautiful place.
