Know Before You Go
The easiest way of getting to Cuicuilco is to take the Metrobus (Line 1 : Direction El Caminero) to the Villa Olimpica station. Once you arrive, get off at the station and cross the footbridge, take a left, then walk down the stairs. Then, you can walk from the entrance of the Plaza commercial to the archeological site.
The site is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and has a small museum where you can learn more about its history, see some of the artifacts unearthed during archeological digs, and even see a skeleton. As the site is also a small ecological park, it is a good spot to see wildlife. You will be sure to see ground squirrels and, if you are lucky, you may have the opportunity to see opposums, hawks, owls, hummingbirds, lizards, tarantulas, and rattlesnakes. Stick to the paths as advised by the many warning signs and do not walk through any of the undergrowth, as there are quite a few rattlesnakes that inhabit the area.
