We traveled about 40 minutes from Guadalajara. The museum and video were educational to give historical information about the mounds. We then went and wandered through the mound area. Very scenic and an inexpensive afternoon. Senior and student discounts available.

No idea but it is easy to find out by asking any taxi driver if they are interested in a day long hire. It would have to be a little more than they can earn in a normal days work.
