Getting there & away
From Zacatecas’ Ex-Central de Autobus (‘former’ station), board a 2nd-class bus for Villanueva (M$30) and ask beforehand to be let off at las ruinas; you’ll be deposited at the turnoff, from where it’s a 2.5km walk to the site entrance. Returning to Zacatecas, you may have to wait a while for a bus – don’t leave the ruins too late. Ómnibus de México and Rojo de los Altos have regular services from Zacatecas’ 1st-class bus station to Villanueva and Guadalajara. You can also take an organized tour (M$250) from Zacatecas.
