The Archeological of Xochimilco: Cuahilama

Published October 1, 2022 in Mexico - 0 Comments

There's an archeological zone in Xochimilco of Mexico City known as Cuahilama. 

Basically, you have to take an Uber over there and you'll pass by some town looking area known as Santa Cruz Acalpixca.

Once dropped off, you'll see some mini gate area that is open with a bunch of steps leading up.

It has a few signs explaining the place in Spanish and some rocks that supposedly have pre hispanic images on them.

Once you get to the top of the stairs (and it's only like 5 to 10 minutes to climb up), you'll find some small green field and also some good views of CDMX.

There isn't much up there though except the view of CDMX and a mini trail you can follow that isn't very long and goes in a circle basically.

When I was there, I didn't see a single other person.

No gringos nor Mexican tourists.

All to myself.

It isn't the most well preserved archeological zone of CDMX but it makes for an OK visit.

The main things I liked about it was that it had nobody else and you could enjoy such a nice view of CDMX from the top.

Anyway, when it comes to the town surrounding the area mentioned before, it's OK to walk through also.

I'd recommend it.

Not much to see but I kinda liked it.

Anyway, that's all I got to say.
