There is so much archeaological work to be done around ALL of Mexico’s ruins. It is amazing when you walk through Chichen Itza, Coba, Teotihuacan, El Tajin and the like that there are hundreds of mounds that represent more to be dug and discovered.
And no, I am not dropping names like a big time traveler. These are all big ticket tourist destinations that many Americans visit all the time. I am pretty sure everyone here at FR knows I go to Mexico a lot because my wife is Mexican, it is pretty inexpensive to go there, and it is really close.
How safe is it? I have a friend who has invited us to her place in San Felipe (Baja), and I would love to go, but it’s not safe for a family to drive down there, is it?
I agree with you...I used to go 'traisping' through those jungles every year. I suspect I saw things that have yet to be 'discovered.' It is amazing at the amount of ruins still hidden in the jungles.
BTW, there are more pyramids in Mexico than all the rest of the world combined.
