Admire the striking design and peaceful atmosphere of Capilla de la Paz (Chapel of Peace), a religious building occupying a scenic hillside position. Overlooking the city and framed by tall palms, the modern chapel takes a bold, pyramidal form, flanked on one side by a 39.6 m (130 ft) white cross and a sculpture of two hands intertwined, signifying brotherhood. The well-kept gardens in front of the nondenominational chapel's entrance offer a shady, comfortable place to take in the extensive views of the city and bay below.

    Chapel Ecumenical with a poignant origin out of the illusion and the memory of the sons of Doña Mily and Don Carlos Trouyet, their children lost in an air crash. It has a chapel, niches, mirador, monumental cross visible from any part of Acapulco, and a sculpture of monumental interlocking hands that beg to the sky, symbolizing the brotherhood.

Where to stay in Acapulco

Acapulco offers accommodations catering to travelers at extreme ends of the financial scale. Pricey but luxurious beach resorts fringe the city's wineglass-curved bay and fan out to the surrounding coastline, while a dense block of high-rise holiday apartments and hotels dominates Acapulco Dorado. Among the ritzy options, you can find a wide range of inexpensive beach bungalows and hostels catering to younger, party-focused visitors. Stay a bit farther away from the center at the rocky outcrop of Las Playas to enjoy views over Acapulco's famous cliffs.
