  • Copalita is a small archeological site with four structures partly excavated. My favourite, that is seen in almost all meso American ruins, is the ball court. It is also the most intact. But the real ...  more »
  • We did a self guided tour and found that the outside signage was all translated into English and easy to follow. However, the signage in the museum itself is Spanish only! Take your translator. The wa...  more »
  • The Tour is very pleasant under huge plants that look like mangales and when you reach the spectacular viewpoint the view.

  • A beautiful museum and archeological site. Stunning views of the ocean and opportunities for wildlife viewing. A great place to walk and learn about the history and ecology of the area. Very easy to take a taxi there.
  • A lovely way to spend a half day. Great views from the top of the cliff, and interesting ruins. Nice wild life as a bonus. Go early as possible to avoid the heat at the cliff walk. Otherwise, there is plenty of shade.
  • One large room of very well preserved small statues and other artifacts, cool skull, and a small room of pictures of birds. There's bats in the rafters. Also a trail around some ruins and to a viewpoint over the nearby river and the coast. Pretty nice view. Also a trail that leads into the jungle and then suddenly stops in a dead end. Nothing spectacular, but a nice walk through a jungle if you want a break from beach things
  • Bring water, mostly shady walk but to get to the cliff it gets hot. Dont bother going past the cliff as the way is roped off and you'll end up turning around anyway to go back to the museum. Used Google translate in the museum to read the information on the archeological items, as all in Spanish. Otherwise a nice park, 80 pesos for tourists, and coin pesos needed for lockers. Go to Bocana beach after (sweaty 15 min walk or short cab ride) and enjoy bodysurfing, beers and food.
  • This is a very small little place to visit while you're on vacation in Huatulco. It was about a little over a mile away from the resort we were staying at. It was very hot that day. Pay attention to the signs that point because you can get lost and make sure that your wearing mosquito spray on and keep it with you at all times because you will sweat it off! The only reason I gave it 3 stars was because of the size of the place and the signs were confusing. But have fun
