Overlooking Acapulco Bay from the southern end, La Capilla de la Paz (The Chapel of Peace) offers visitors beautiful seaside views and a peaceful atmosphere. According to one TripAdvisor user, "This is one of the best views in Acapulco—just gorgeous. This is a must see." Many visitors are drawn to the highest point in Acapulco by the massive white cross, which is visible from almost anywhere in the city. Although the chapel itself is pretty minimalistic, the surrounding gardens provide respite from the hustle and bustle of the city below.
Many recent visitors agree that the best time to make the trip up to The Chapel of Peace is in the evening, when you can witness the sun setting over the bay. For a stunning photo, nab a spot near Las Manos de la Hermandad (The Hands of Brotherhood); this sculpture of clasped hands provides the perfect frame for the sunset.
The Chapel of Peace is located in Las Brisas, which can be accessed by following La Costera south along the bay. The church itself is open to visitors every day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and again from 4 to 6 p.m., but you are welcome to explore the grounds throughout the entire day. Admission is free.
