We visited the pyramids near San Miguel de Allende, then had a lunch at a nearby ranch that grows almost all of the food they serve.
I was particularly impressed by our guide, Albert, whose knowledge of mesoamerican history and culture was impressive. He told us of various theories for the existence of the culture in this part of Mexico, why the pyramid complex looked like it did, and what happened when.
Since I'm interested in science, I was fascinated by the pyramid's use as an astronomical calendar to determine important dates through tracking of sun, moon, and planets.
I heartily recommend Coyote Canyon Tours!
