We will start our tour in San Miguel de Allende, and after a 30 minutes trip we'll get to Canada de la Virgen. There, we'll be taken by a small bus close to the pyramids, then we walk 1 kilometer (3,300 feet) to get there. The tour in the pyramids is walking and has a duration of two hours, including the bus shuttle. When we finish the tour, we walk back to the bus that will take us to our vehicle. We'll go to Rossana's place to have lunch made with local ingredients that have been used by the natives for hundreds of years, plus handmade tortillas and food made by local people who know how to mix all these ingredients to make a delicious meal. At the restaurant there is a small museum exhibiting photos, where we can have a better understanding about the relation between the pyramids in Canada de la Virgen with the sun and the moon. After lunch we head back to San Miguel de Allende to see the highlights of the city in a 2 hours tour.
I'll pick you up at 9:15 am to go the pyramids. The trip from San Miguel is about 30 minutes. Then we'll take the bus to do the walking tour in the archaelogical site to see the pyramids built 1,500 years ago, and we'll get an idea of the reasons why they made them, and how the place was used as a calendar..
