Archaeological sites

Different cultures inhabited Mexico in pre-Hispanic eras. From those times we still have several archaeological sites that we can visit to recognize our own identity and historical memory.

According to the Network of Archaeological Zones of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), there are 191 archaeological zones open to the public throughout the country.

These are part of Mexico’s cultural heritage, and, although there are multiple sites scattered across the country, the states of Quintana Roo, Campeche, and Yucatan have the largest number of them.

In the following list, I mention all the towns that have at least one important archaeological monument within their attractions.
