These ruins, and the museum, are definitely worth a visit. Admission is free to 'pensioners'. It is just amazing to think how these primitive peoples were so advanced! The way they brought in water, the houses, the ball courts. To think that so much has survived, with much still buried. The museum is interesting although there was little in the... More

If you ever have an opportunity to visit this unique UNESCO site, you should take the time to do so. We had the benefit of a personal tour guide who was well versed in the history and unique aspects of Pacquime which made this visit particularly meaningful. This archeological site is available to roam through (within certain boundaries) which really... More

Paquimé is unique and it is well worth the trip from anywhere in Mexico. For me, I made this trip from Chiapas and I was absolutely delighted that I made it to the most curious archaeological site in Mexico. Allow a couple hours to immerse yourself in this labyrinth-like ruins and let your imagination go. I walked up the hills... More

I visited Paquime in late March and was absolutely delighted. The facility features a thoughtfully unobtrusive visitor center and museum which includes a wide array of materials that provide insight into the evolution of the civilization there about 1,000 years ago, and about its economy and civilization. The exhibits were complemented by an art gallery with contemporary exhibits. The adobe... More
