Description

You will be picked up at your hotel in Acapulco or in Diamente for a half day tour to Tehuacalco Archaeological Zone. The name of the site comes from the Nahuatl phrase “tehuacalli” it can be interpreted as “place of the stone box,” “house of priests” or “house of the sacred water.” It was mostly associated with the Yopes, but it is not completely certain.

Leave Acapulco and experience the impressive countryside of Mexico. As you travel on your way to the Tehuacalco archaeological site, your guide will be telling you everything about Mexico and you will be learning about the lifestyle and very important topics of the Mexican Nation.

Fascinating engravings depict what may have been the very first ball-game. Discover incredible petroglyphs dedicated to the water, lined up from north to south of the site. Prepare yourself for this unique experience to be one of the first visitors to Tehuacalco. Marvel at the excavation site and see the moon marks, the sun observer and the way of life between the religion and the government while your tour guide takes you back through the ages.

This site is known for its large structures. The monumental area encompasses 12 acres and includes more than 15 different structures. Among them you will see the great pyramidal base rising 60 feet from the ground. The base features a large staircase, walls, and patios. At the end of the visit, enjoy free time.
