About the event

On this tour we will visit the archeological ruins in Atzompa. The excavation and restoration of the archeological site on the mountaintop in Atzompa was begun in 2005 and continues to this day. The site was opened to the public in 2015. The ruins include two impressive palaces, a ballcourt and the temple of the  altars. There are some steep slopes and many stairs. People with mobility  issues should probably not attempt this tour. 

The ceramic artist Angelica Vasquez will welcome us to her  home and studio, where she will demonstrate her craft while  talking about her family and how she became an artist. 

We will then visit the Coatlicue pottery workshop to see the unique pieces the Alarzon Hernandez family have been   producing for four generations. And we will visit the cooperative   where visitors can purchase the work of numerous other artists.

Not included: Cost of lunch and food, drink. We will lunch at Hacienda Santa Marta, which offers dozens of dishes on their buffet.

Expect to pay about 250 pesos for food and beverage.

Additional Costs:  Artesans will have beautiful handmade products for sale.  If you are interested in purchasing for yourself or as gifts, bring cash for purchases of any of these items.
