This tour is for those inquisitive people who want to do something other than sit on a beach. Juan our tour guide picked us up. Not only was he full of information on the tour, he was able to provide lots of information to and from the site. The museum is very warm so be prepared. The areas outside of... More

This was a cool tour to me! The tour guides were amazing! Very knowledgeable. Sad that the government has to much other stuff to worry about then uncover this whole site!

Hooked up with a driver who took us to the archeaology sit south of Zihuatanejo. Very interesting, the museum was grest and the areas being uncovered were very interesting. I wasn't aware that there were ancient ruins on the west coast of Mexico. Very interesting and the museum was really informative.

All of the exhibit texts are in Spanish, but very helpful in understanding the layouts, and artifacts. Makes sense of what you are seeing. And the local people are helpful in understanding the context.

This may not be as impressive as other archaelogical sites in Mexico but its history is fascinating and its importance can be compared to other great sites. The only civilization that built clay pyramids! I love to go to this place everytime I have the chance. I love the museum, the food in the local restaurants, the tobbacco plantations and... More

Small place with six rooms of exhibit. A nice brochure is in English. Location is very convenient to anyone visiting the Playa Principal.

The trip out and back were good. The road site restaurant had wonderful food. The tour of the sacred grounds was like a hick in the woods and there was really nothing to see. The museum was really interesting. The actual site was disappointing because instead of being real ruins, it was cement replicas of ruins. Since we have seen... More
