  • Pre-Olmec sacred site with mud brick pyramid within 27 km Zihuatanejo. Xihuacan is Nuhua for "place of Turquoise owners", or possibly "those who control the calendar". Site occupied from approx. 1500 BCE, peak at 450 - 1100 CE. Collapse approx. 1350 CE due to natural catastrophe or possible conflict. Very nice museum, access to pyramid, stelae, ritual spaces and ball court.
