This was built in the memory of a rich man's 2 sons killed in a plane accident. In a very wealthy part of Acapulco overlooking the bay.

This was an awesome trip - the ride there is so beautiful- and learning where Kennedy's, John Wayne & others lived was very special since that's our era. But the icing on the cake, so to speak was The Chapel of Peace.

This was a peaceful and excellent place to meditate. The history behind the chapel was heart wrenching. The view was picture perfect.

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.
