This is a must see landmark in Puerto Vallarta. Very beautiful. Visit during the day to see the interior, and be sure to go by in the evening to see the exterior all lit up.

This is a beautiful little church, you have to see it in person to appreciate it. We did not attend mass at this church so I cannot comment on that aspect.

This charming church, open to the public (but please be respectful and quiet as you enter), offers art and ambiance as you wander about. Take a moment to soak in the peace.

Lovely experience just to enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of the simple but elegant church. This is well worth the time to visit.

This church is unlike any I have ever seen. There were easily six sets of double doors that were completely wide open, inviting all to enter.

Sorry, I searched Google Mexico when we were down there in January for Mass times. Finally, just went by the church before Sunday and checked the posted schedule. I went and as I recall it was either 9:30 or 10. I would... More

It's about 2.5 miles. It is just north of the main downtown area near the north end of the Malecon. Realize that this is not the main downtown church, which is Our Lady of Guadalupe.
