Here's a photo of what are probably the two oldest colonial-era tombs in the Panteón de Agua de Correa, the original colonial settlement here that predates Zihuatanejo. There are no legible inscr1ptions on them, but they have been here longer than most of the local families. Of course, this region has been populated since at least 1500 B.C., so these are far from being the oldest tombs in the region. They are probably tombs of Spaniards who possibly came by ship (since that's how most people arrived here before the 20th century) and stayed for one reason or another. The fact that they were buried here suggests they became part of the local community.
