  • If you are by car, along this stretch of Route 40 it is worth visiting the ruins. They charge you an entry of 50 pesos. The indigenous settlement is very well preserved and when one manages to imagine life there, impresses. Hygienic cabinets, sale of handicrafts and, very importantly, water cold.
