Amazing view of Acapulco you can see all the surrounding of the city. The history of how the chapel was build and the scenery very nice. It's amazing how the tree roots are flat against the walls... We had a great tour guide Sabastin Hernandez...More

I was also told a plane crash by a local guide. The whole series of events was so tragic that there must be loads of documented info on it. Good luck with you research.

Response from Jan-Marie H | Reviewed this property |
we went to 10 am Mass on Sunday
I only see one review about how to get there, can other people tell me their experience of how they got there and the best way and the cost of a taxi both ways (there are 6 or 7 of us)? We could see it on an excursion with our cruise or do a different excursion and go ourselves later and are trying to decide the best option. Thank you!
