What to expect
The Cañada de la Virgen, a Mesoamerican archaeological park just a short drive from San Miguel de Allende, remains one of Mexico’s best-kept secrets. During this action-packed day tour, join a team of bona fide archaeologists and anthropologists and embark on an in-depth exploration of the under-the-radar ancient site, only open to the public since 2011.
Escape San Miguel de Allende’s crowds and settle back as you cruise through the Mexican countryside.
At the park, get detailed and enriching background on the history of the Otomi people, traditionally one of Mexico’s most peaceful, mountain-dwelling indigenous groups, from specialists of the Bajio region.
Wander the 2-mile (3-kilometer) site at your own pace and get a peek at the off-the-beaten-track ruins, some dating back to the sixth century. See an old observatory, a colossal temple, and the former homes of astronomer-priests, who kept alive the group’s cosmological traditions.
