If you are within a couple hours of this place and you appreciate things other than cities, pools, and nightlife, DO NOT miss this. My friends who had been to Chichen Itza said this blew it out of the water. The remains are massive, you...More
It was 70 peso for general admission. It’s high up in the mountains so depending on where you’re coming from it could be a long ride before you reach here. It was about 45 minutes from Cuernavaca. As you approach from afar you could kind...More
A Mexican friend organized the visit for us for this opportunity. This archeology is hugeeee! There are more than several Mayan Pyramids at this site, all of which have flat top and unlike other pyramids around the world. The pyramids used smaller stone to build,...More
Definitely not the easiest archaeological site in Mexico to get to, but then again some of the most magnificent sites in Mexico (Yaxchilan, Monte Alban) aren't so easy to get to. The on-site museum is impressive and one of the best for the archaeological sites...More
We suggest that you visit the museum first, to get an idea about the historical time of this site, before you tour the ruins. The placards are in Spanish. Because of the earthquake in September 2017, the Observatorio is closed, which is unfortunate, it would've...More
We both thought this was the best place to understand the history and culture of Mexico. Very informative and staff were outstanding. Went to Tepoztlan first but had wished we had come here first. If you only have time to do one this is the...More
We visited on Jan 10, 2018, and the museum and the archeological site are open, though some of the areas are closed off due to earthquake damage. The Temple of the Feathered Serpent IS accessible, and the carvings on the side are definitely the highlight...More
After earthquake of September 19th, Xochicalco was closed due damages in the structure of the museum, however, since December 15, is open. The "pyramids" and other ancient structures are okay. Only the observatory is still closed.
Anyway, Xochicalco is a great place to visit.

Hola Frankiepb98, daños a la zonas Arqueológicas fue extensiva. Visita la pagina de INAH si quieres la información más reciente antes de tu visita. Mi impresión cuando yo visite en Octubre 2017 fue que la zona va estar cerrada por mucho tiempo. Mucha suerte en tu visita a Morelos. Hi Frankiepb98, damage to all 5 major tourist attractions in Morelos is extensive. Visit INAH’s page to get the latest information before your visit. When I was there in October 2017, I was told by the care taker of the Xochicalco museum that it would be quite sometime before it would be open to the public again. Good luck with your visit to the state of Morelos. There is plenty to do! Happy travels!

From Cuernavaca we went to the Pullman bus station and caught a "directo" bus to Xochicalco. we went during a weekday and we're dropped off at the "crusero" hwy crossing just south of the ruins. we walked no more than a few hundred meters and caught a taxi up to the museum at Xochicalco. On the way home we waited just outside of the ecological park entrance where we picked up a bus to Cuernavaca. I'm told it's easier on weekends because there are more people, the best part of going on the weekdays we had the place practically to ourselves.
I hope this helps
