Let´s explore the interesting archeological site of Cuicuilco together, in Mexico City, during this guided walking tour.

Cuicuilco is an important archaeological site located on the southern shore of the Lake Texcoco in the southeastern Valley of Mexico, in what is today the borough of Tlalpan in Mexico City. The settlement goes back to 1400 BC.

Cuicuilco was occupied during the Early Formative until its destruction in the Late Formative. Based on its date of occupation, Cuicuilco may be the oldest city in the Valley of Mexico and was roughly contemporary with, and possibly interacting with the Olmec of the Gulf Coast of lowland Veracruz and Tabasco (also known as the Olmec heartland).

Cuicuilco was destroyed and abandoned following the eruption of the volcano Xitle, causing migrations and changes to the population and culminating in the Teotihuacan consolidation as classical period ruler of the Central Highlands.

The price is 100 Mexican Pesos; payment in advance.

Please send a whatsapp to 044 55 1308 3732 to ask if there are still places available, to confirm your participation and to receive the payment information (you can pay either by transfer, by cash deposit at any Banamex bank or cash payment at any Oxxo store).
