First let me say, this is an amazing site. Take the local bus to the main road in, and from there flag a taxi, about 40 pesos. On this site there is a museum where you pay your entrance fee, its free and well worth...More
This is a wonderful archaeological site, the only concern is getting there. I got there by taxi; it was far away and the driver could not find the place.
The entrance fee is 75 pesos. I have been twice in Xochicaco, and I was a...More
I have visited Xohicalco twice. Magnificent view of pyramids. There is a Ball Game field. And a cave where in July 28-29 light comes in through a ceiling's orifice, starts as a flame then illuminates the whole cave, looks like magic.
If you want an amazing and cultural experience, visit Xochicalco. The pyramids are in very good shape, there is also a ball game structure where the tlahuicas indians used to prove their abilities but also, it was a power game. Those who lost could lose...More
This is the only archaeological site in Mexico I have been to that does not have vendors. It makes for a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience. This site also has one of the few remnants of stucco covered adobe.
The museum has a surprisingly...More
This is quite an interesting site and recommended if you've not had the opportunity to visit any of the other archaeological cites in and around Mexico City. However, if like us you've already been to Teotihuacan , Monte Alban, Mitla and Xochimilco then you might...More
A beautiful site, small enough to see in two hours. We travelled there with an extraordinary guide, Arturo Galindo, (1taxiseguro.com) who made the experience even more memorable with his fluent English and attentiveness to our safety. Hats, water, and sunscreen mandatory!
After visiting over the years many archaeological sites of different cultures in Mexico, it's always a pleasure to return to Xochicalco (pronounced 'Sotchycalco') located about half an hour's drive south of the city of Cuernavaca, in the State of Morelos. What makes this site quite...More

Hola Frankiepb98, daños a la zonas Arqueológicas fue extensiva. Visita la pagina de INAH si quieres la información más reciente antes de tu visita. Mi impresión cuando yo visite en Octubre 2017 fue que la zona va estar cerrada por mucho tiempo. Mucha suerte en tu visita a Morelos. Hi Frankiepb98, damage to all 5 major tourist attractions in Morelos is extensive. Visit INAH’s page to get the latest information before your visit. When I was there in October 2017, I was told by the care taker of the Xochicalco museum that it would be quite sometime before it would be open to the public again. Good luck with your visit to the state of Morelos. There is plenty to do! Happy travels!

From Cuernavaca we went to the Pullman bus station and caught a "directo" bus to Xochicalco. we went during a weekday and we're dropped off at the "crusero" hwy crossing just south of the ruins. we walked no more than a few hundred meters and caught a taxi up to the museum at Xochicalco. On the way home we waited just outside of the ecological park entrance where we picked up a bus to Cuernavaca. I'm told it's easier on weekends because there are more people, the best part of going on the weekdays we had the place practically to ourselves.
I hope this helps
