Five Insider’s Caring Tips When Visiting Archaeological Sites in Mexico
Be a Traveler, Not Just a Tourist with Magno’s Tips
This post isn’t just about tips. It’s about the great Mexican heritage. Enticing. Mystical. Impressive. Marvelous. Exuberant. A cultural and historical heritage.
One of the main enticing tourist attractions, a cultural and historic heritage that Mexico boasts to the world represent their archaeological sites.
They are spread all over the Mexican territory and depict the past living of several indigenous groups that inhabited at different historical stages.
They are dwelling almost all the current states of Mexico and nowadays some of those original peoples are still bringing life to Mexico’s social presence.
However, there are certain rules you have to observe when you place a foot into these living treasures as it follows:
1. Watch your approach and entrance to the site
Although most of the archeological zones have parking facilities and access to pedestrians, some of them are not easily accessible due to their locations.
Some of them are underdeveloped for visiting purposes.
So getting access through the structures when there isn’t any formal sign, whether they are pyramids, temples or yards seems to be tempting and may compromise structure’s state, so always follow official access indications for proper entrance.

2. Taking local flora, fauna, or structure parts away isn’t an option
I know many people may be tempted to take home a souvenir from the site.
I think this is additional to say but they are not presents to be removed from their original positions, this only creates tourist ravaging and endangers the site in the future.
3. When climbing available, don’t drag or stomp feet on structures
Some sites don’t allow at all to climb into structures, like Chichen Itza, Tulum, Templo Mayor, etc. some others allow.
So if you guys have the opportunity to climb, don’t drag or stomp into them since some of them are very aged and don’t receive frequent restoration from Archeological and History National Institute.
4. Climbing support devices or walking sticks aren’t an option
Climbing into pyramids is alluring and will turn into an unforgettable experience.
However, since they are fragile structures they aren’t prepared to receive the support of a walking stick or other climbing devices, so you will greatly help other tourists future visiting dreams from refraining of ascending structures using assistive devices.
Mexico is great, isn’t it? Let me suggest you rent a car to drive in Mexico.
Why? Because it’s very convenient and taking advantage of the affordable rates that my partners of Discover Cars offer you here or Economy Bookings that you can get here, driving in Mexico will be trouble-free. Thank you very much for supporting me.
5. Pro photo without a special permission may hurt your visit
To make pro photo or video recording using a tripod or even a drone, you will require a special permission from INAH (Instituto Nacional de Arqueología e Historia).
This permission can be worked at any state representation of INAH or in most of the cases you can pay directly at site’s entrance ticket office.
Now, before I continue, what is the result of combining fantastic accommodation options at very affordable prices and awesome tours? Hostelworld and Musement.
As you can see it’s not that hard at all to watch for these caring tips that will turn your state from a mere visitor into a caring traveler that doesn’t leave a bad trace into these sites, other than the ones that you will take in your memories and in your pictures.
