Mexico has a great archaeological tradition due to the number of cultures that inhabited this land before Mexico itself existed, which makes archaeology one of the most important topics when it comes to travel- and tourism-related activities.
Obviously, we know about the prehispanic cultures that inhabited this land, however, there are many non-famous sites that are mostly overshadowed by traditional ones.
Attention focuses on the most famous pyramids and archaeological centers such as Teotihuacán, Chichén Itzá, Uxmal, Palenque, among others, leaving aside large constructions of allegedly “minor importance”, although many times, of greater beauty than the “tradicionales“.
These places, alien to the general public due to lack of publicity and difficult access, are, in fact, fantastic cities that amaze anyone who ventures to reach them.
All of these places are stunningly beautiful and they were built in the middle of lush jungles or mountainous scenarios.
Here, 7 archaeological zones in Mexico that few people know:
1. Tamtok y Tamohi, San Luis Potosí
2. Teotenango, Estado de México
The word means “place of the holy wall” in teotihuacano tongue. It is located at the Tetépetl hills, and it is the second biggest archaeological site in the State of Mexico
3. Cañada de la Virgen, Guanajuato.
4. Chacchobén, Quintana Roo.
5. Bonampak, Chiapas
6. Calakmul, Campeche
7. Yaxchilán, Chiapas
