“Nice landmark”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

It's behind the Zocalo in old town, and Zocalo itself is an attraction for tourists to visit although I didn't find it that impressive. The cathedral is uniquely designed and I noticed the Houston Intercontinental airport (IAH) uses it as the landmark representing Acapulco. Took us 5 mins in the out, just snapped some photos.

“A fallen Lady”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The area in the Zocalo was a nice piece of old Acapulco .This Cathedral was built as a set for an Elvis Movie I was told .Now its littered with drud hounds and smells of urine and other mysterious pungent odours .

“Just visit in and out and do not go after 6 p.m.”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is a great looking church which you could admire and take pictures of, do not go after 6 p.m. since it is full of pick pocketers, trasvestis and beggars, other than that better worth visit in the mornings.

“La Catedral”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Take a walk to the Zocalo and discover this cathedral. It is so peacefull, look at the statues, the art, the people praying etc. At the same time, while you are there, take the time to enjoy the activities around! A must stop!

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Our "local" (licensed) tour guide, Julio, took us to both the old and new Cathedrals. Loved the art and beauty. Well worth the stop!
