There are many places offering trips to the magnificent Monte Albán—one of the earliest Mesoamerican cities and the social, economic and political center of the Zapotec culture—but none quite like ours. This one starts in the downtown and walks through the neighboring township, San Martín Mexicapan. Your guide is a teacher who is from San Martín, who will lead you through the area, passing by important community spaces to a trail that climbs the hill to reach Monte Albán. Once you reach the site, you are free to explore it or return back to the city by bus.
Price: $425MXN (Student rates available $17USD).
**We recommend not bringing anything valuable with you on the trip and only a little money for entrance to the site, breakfast, and a bus ride down.**
