We stopped here 10 minutes on our Jeep tour. It was midday and so hot that we just wanted to get back to our vehicle. The churches history is interesting but hard to concentrate in the heat.

We made a short stop here while on a "trike" tour, The church is in pristine condition but is very small and is unique in having outdoor seating. It offers an interesting view on local history.

This chapel, Alto Vista Chapel, is so beautiful. It is very small and in the middle of nowhere. You feel peace and tranquility while walking around. Love to see all the stations marked by crosses as you are getting there. They have a peace labyrinth that is really nice to just contemplate and meditate. Nice stop during the island tour.

We saw this place on our bus tour with De Palm Tours. The guide explained that it requires outside seating because the attendance is so large for mass. The chapel is very nicely done and really cute.

Loved to see the stations of the cross as we were going up the hill and then it's breathtaking to see the chapel. What an amazing island.

You can light a candle and have your own personal prayer time. There is a walking labyrinth, and the view from up there is different from the resort area.
