Teuchitlán Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 49 photos
Teuchitlan is a small typical mexican town with a main plaza, with natural beautiful surroundings; At walking distance from the town you can find a small lake with nice restaurants. At walking distance from the main plaza going uphill you will find a Waterpark and the famous archaeological site of Guachimontones
The place is located around a 45 min. drive from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
Driving there on a Car is the best way to get there, but you can also take a bus from Guadalajara, at the Bus station located between Avenida Vallarta and Aviacion, but the bus will make several stops on the way and will probably spend more time traveling than enjoying the place. Bus cost is around 50 pesos.
At walking distance from the town you will found the archaeological site of Guachimontones.
Guachimontones is an archeological site, locate in the town: teuchitlan
These concentric circular pyramids are unique in the world!
Excavations of these started in 1996 and first opened to general public in 2003. So be aware that the place is rather small compared with most archaeological sites in México, excavations are still in progress.
Some changes were made in the last year, so if you visited the place before be aware that about a year ago you still can drive to the site, but not anymore, the only cars allowed up to the site are those with disabled permits, so be prepare for some hiking up to the site. But the good news are that there's a new parking lot, restrooms and a museum at the skirts of the hill were the archeological site is located.
Entrance fee is $30pesos
The entrance fee include entrance to the archaelogical site, museum (small museum) and clean restrooms ;)
- Pros:Great surroundings, unique arqueological site.
- Cons:Small, Some hiking required...
- In a nutshell:The hidden treasure in jalisco
