The archeological site of Tehuacalco is more than 600 years old and is where Yope culture flourished.
Located 50 minutes from Chilpancingo, at Tehuacalco you can see the ball game court and admire the La Encimera pyramid, a platform with a solar marker and a palace of more than 260 feet in length.
The Juxtlahuaca caves are just 30 miles from Chilpancingo and contain Olmec paintings. Along with cave of Oxtotitlan, the Juxtlahuaca caves are among the few examples of sophisticated pictorial activity known in Mesoamerica and the only example of rock paintings in deep caverns.
The paintings that have become famous in this site are an estimated half-mile below the surface. Access to the gallery is difficult and reaching it can take up to two hours because some sections of the corridors leading to the site are partially flooded due to water seepage.
