ARCHEOLOGY IN MEXICO

The archaeological zones that scatter the Mexican landscape speak to the many diverse and powerful ancient civilizations that once ruled this land.

With over 29,000 archaeological sites rediscovered to date, and new discoveries continuing all the time, Mexico is an archeology and history lover’s delight. The many archeological ruins of these great empires throughout Mexico offer modern travelers the opportunity to step back in time and trace the rise and fall of grand civilizations. Whether exploring the earliest Mexican culture of the Olmecs, the first urban center in Mesoamerica built by the Zapotecs, marveling at the astrological prowess of the Maya in Chichen Itzá or walking the Avenue of Death at Teotihuacán, prepare to be awed.
