About 8km northeast of Cuetzalan, the last 2km via a steep cobblestone road, this ceremonial pre-Hispanic site has niche pyramids similar to El Tajín’s that are in varying states of ruin. The site is impressive and well worth a visit, not least for the great views toward the coast and back to Cuetzalan from this side of the valley. The entrance is adjacent to Yohualichán’s church and town plaza. To get here, board any colectivo (M$7) out of Cuetzalan and walk 20 minutes down from the stop where there’s a blue sign with a pyramid on it. Alternatively, ask around the bus depot for a camión (truck) passing by the pyramids.
