We travelled to Canada de la Virgin in our friends vehicle, but we’re able to catch up with Albert Coffee for an excellent tour. He made the archeological site come to life with his knowledge. We would recommend this tour.

It was a special treat to visit the Pyramid with a well informed archeologist. Albert Coffee not only has worked personally on the site as an archeologist but has been showing this gem to many people. The walk and climb are for those in reasonably...More

What an experience! The pristine archeological site is almost overwhelming. Just so beautiful and mind blowing. Our guide, one of the archeologists on the site really gave us the information we wanted, and was wise enough to see when our interest waned. Which wasn't often!...More

Amazing site. Did the English Albert coffee tour which really gave us a lot of info. Going without the tour probably wouldn't be worth it. I learned so much about the site and theories behind it

Alberto our guide was very knowledgeable, although the tour around the site can only last two hours, we learnt so much about the history, how they believed the site was accessed, there is still much work being done here. It is a pretty walk to...More

Thank you so much to Albert Coffee who gave us an archaeological tour of the pyramid. Albert is an extremely culturally sensitive guide with an encyclopaedic knowledge in this area of study. Albert has a dry humour and was able to convey much information in...More

So, yes, there are larger and more impressive ruins in Mexico, but you'll never have a more soothing, relaxing, enjoyable visit to an archaeological site in Mexico. You'll find no vendors, no hawking of overpriced art, no hoardes disgorging from huge buses. The site is...More

Very interesting to find out about pyramids discovered on a private rancho near San Miguel. Best seen with a guide who will take you there on an authorized shuttle bus, as access is restricted. You'll have to walk about 6000 meters mostly up hill once...More
