To a unique place with a private guide, totally off the beaten path


This town located outside Mexico City is one of the places that are the least visited in Mexico, because it's not known outside the country. It's market is even unique because people are still using barter as an active form of interchange of merchandises. We'll visit the Mexica ruins of Malinalco carved on the live rock in 1501 by the Mexica people, and the house of eagles that is oriented towards the sun during the equinox, the town by itself is a destination because it still has the slow pace of an old mexican town, it is listed on the "Magic Towns" list of the tourism ministry. The town also posseses a nice secret, the Agostin convent of the 16th century with most of it's original muralas painted by indian hands in the 16th century still in good place.

The best days to book this tour is from tuesday to friday, weekends can atract more people to the town. This tour is not available on Mondays.

A Recent Review of this tour

Carlos was an exceptional guide with tremendous knowledge of the Cuauhtinchan Archaeological Zone in Malinalco. His expertise -- developed over decades in the field -- deepened our awareness and appreciation for this important place, its people, and culture. We will definitely be returning to ToursByLocals.com for another tour of Mexico's ancient sites.
