Tzintzuntzan, archaeological capital of the Tarasco lordship
In the valley of the overlapping stones, you will find spectacle starring a group of gigantic rock formations arranged in a way that makes it seem like they have been placed there by supernatural beings.
EXPLORE THE GEOLOGICAL NATURE
Contemplate the inexplicable forms and incomprehensible balances that will make you think of other worlds, when it is really the nature itself what gave them form and balance.
If you climb to the top of the stones, each of which is between 65 and 90 feet from the ground, you can get a panoramic view of the whole, seemingly sculptural, rocky formation. Find dragon-like figures, owls, birds, heads or seahorses and loose yourself in a 50 to 60 million old time portal.
VENTURE INTO THE STONES
Among the rock formations, adventure seekers can try a zip line through the park, practice rappelling from the rocks, mountain bike over the local trails and have a horseback ride or a hike through the pathways, marked under the steps of both locals and visitors alike.
SAMPLE THE LOCAL FOODS IN THE PLAZA
Finish your day by trying the local delicacies. Try the grilled steak or nopales, barbacoa, mixiotes, as well as bean and alverjon tlacoyos, made from a seed similar to a lentil that is common in the region.
CAMP AND ENJOY THE NIGHT
Camp for a night and start a wood fire in the assigned locations. Share with your family or friends the magical histories that will feel more real than ever with the spectacular landscapes.
