It's hard to believe these ruins are still being uncovered! What a tremendous and historic addition to an already special area. The guides are very informative and it is a wonderful way to spend the day! Highly recommend. Call first for your reservation.

We loved this trip. There’s quite a bit of walking so wear sensible shoes! Tour unless previously organised is in Spanish. A must do activity.

Over the years, we've explored Canada de la Virgen several times with family and friends. Though there are more impressively scaled pyramid sites in Mexico, these ruins are easily accessible, interesting, and make for a lovely half-day experience. Typically we explored the site on our...More

Such an exciting adventure. Too bad the organizers do not have sufficient funds to improve this historic place. But with what they do have, it was worthwhile. I would suggest they have bathrooms closer to the path, bilingual guides, and some sort of assistance for...More
