They are all round stone, ignore that if you been to better ones.

If you been to other mexican Maya Ruins, you can pass this. but here is a good place to look out volcano on north when sunny... More

This visit was part of our Colima State tour (DaniTours). The site is over 2000 years old. Inspiring!

We drove up the hill to visit the site. All gates but one were closed. We wanted to enter the site but where stopped by an offical. It was closed, we were not even allowed to take one picture. In our case, a two hour drive for nothing. Make sure to contact the organisation in Colima before you make your... More

We found La Campana in a web search and were surprised that it was within the city limits of present day Colima, the state capitol (not in Manzanillo). The site has about a... More

Take a cab. It's 15 minutes from any place in the city. We've been to Mexico City for the ruins and this doesn't compare. However, if you are in the area please visit. Even my 11 year old enjoyed. Not a suggested trip if coming from Manzanillo or Guadalajara. Would be long drive for a day trip.

I've visited La Campana several times over the years. The site is very interesting because it is huge - and they have only uncovered a small portion of it - and because it is constructed of smaller sized rocks cemented together, not giant blocks of stone as are many of the prehispanic ruins in Mexico. It surprised me that they... More

The tour was nice but stops were too short. Lunch was awesome.
