Description

Venture to the fascinating archaeological site of Guachimontones, famous for its one of a kind circular stepped pyramids. Gain insights into ancient Mesoamerican culture as you visit features like the Iguana pyramid and Ballgame Court with an expert guide leading the way.

Enjoy a ride straight from your hotel to Guachimontones, one of the main cities from the Pre-Hispanic era. Explore the ceremonial center of the UNESCO listed site, which features a wealth of architecturally significant constructions that reveal profound insights into the Teuchitlan tradition. See the uniquely designed pyramids, including the one known as the Iguana, and then step inside the Ballgame Court to learn about the ancient games that took place there. Your guide also explains the Voladores tradition, an ancient dance ritual in which flyers descended from ceremonial poles.

The trip was especially delightful because of the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide, Orlando. He went the extra mile, always!

Our reservation was "lost"! We waited 1 1/2 hours in our hotel lobby for our driver to arrive, before calling, only to find out that they had lost our reservation! The staff at our Hotel de Mendoza, were shaking their heads in disbelief. If I had known if was possible, I would have booked my tour through the hotel, for half the price!
