After front-door pickup from your hotel, take a short, scenic drive to the excavation site. Xihuacan is one of Mexico’s newest archaeological attractions, and on-site discoveries are still being made.
Take an up-to-date tour of the latest findings as you explore landmarks like the stepped pyramids and ball court, where tournaments once ended in deadly sacrifices. Your visit will be enriched by a look at some of the relics on display in the Xihuacan Site Museum, including obsidian vases and impressive ceramics.
From there, you’ll take a peek at the rural village of Soledad de Macial, built over a pre-Columbian residential enclave, before hitting the water. Take a dip in a natural oceanside lagoon while you enjoy a delicious local lunch, with your choice of fresh shrimp, grilled fish, or chicken fajitas along with homemade tortillas.
