This is a very much overlooked and little known acheological site on the coast of the Sea of Cortez about 30 miles north of the city of Mazatlan. This site contains some of the best preserved Indian rock carvings in Mexico. The site has recently undergone substantial improvement courtesy of the government of Sinaloa and is now very user friendly and easy to access. It lies about 3 miles off the international highway on the coast and has an information center and well laid out paths to the carvings. It also is situated next to a marvelous beach for those inclined to sunbath or simply enjoy the waters. A google search on "Las Labradas Sinaloa" will provide additional information in both English and Spanish. This site is growing in popularity is is the location for a yearly spring equinox celebration that is also becoming increasingly popular.

Very interesting piece of history. The beach is beautiful and the town very quaint. Very tiny town with farm animals of all sorts in front yard of houses.
