1. San Miguel: Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site Tour

The archaeological site of Cañada de la Virgen is located just 25 kilometers west of San Miguel de Allende. Occupied between 540 and 1050 A.D., it is perched upon a small mesa surrounded by canyons. The site is made up of four patio/pyramid complexes, an ancient, artificial pond and a ceremonial causeway covering the 16 hectares. Your highly specialized guide will share their knowledge of the Otomi people and of other cultures of the Bajio region, as well as the Mesoamerican cultures in general.  After the tour, you will head to a small village located just 10 minutes away to enjoy a real ranch-style meal prepared by the ladies of the community. The meal consists of fresh ranch style cheese prepared on site daily, fresh tortillas al comal, organic cheese, rice, beans, fresh salsas, and guacamole. Also on the menu are quesadillas, nopales (cactus), salad, potato patties and fresh fruit.
