Zona Arqueologica Malinalco

Reviewed By Craig T - San Rafael, California

The ruins here are okay, not great, but certainly worth the walk up the path several hundred feet. The best part are the views you have from up here over the valley of Malinalco and the Mountains beyond. If you are a ruins junkie, as I am, and have been all over Mexico and the world, don't expect the most amazing ruins you've ever seen, though.

Museo Luis Mario Schneider

Reviewed By TravelingCat22 - Tucson, Arizona

You start with temporary Exhibitions, at the moment very beautiful pottery work. Then you have the main museum, beautiful and arranged with lots of innovative ideas. Then before leaving, there is the reconstitution of the inside of the pyramid you can visit after 400 stairs in Malinalco. The inside of the real pyramid is now forbidden so it important to be able to see it anyway at the museum.

Reviewed By PatricioGutierrez - Mexico City, Mexico

We liked the place, but we actually thought that it would be bigger, it is quite small, the staff is very friendly, my only complaint is that there are NO signs at all on how to get there, so we kinda got lost

As someone who did rappel/cascading dozens of times in different places around the world I must say, the experience with AMD was outstanding. From the organization at their agency in the town, to the explanations, to the photos, everything was flawless. Congratulation to the instructors who were very well trained. Very safe activity, I recommend to anyone!

If you don't know what a temazcal is, this is a nice place to discover it (about 300MXP for 2 hours). They also offer many different types of massages, yoga classes, etc. Everything is very clean and of superior quality.
Small boutique and small cafeteria on the premises.
Between Panteon Municipal and Hotel Malinalco.
Soothing place not to be missed when visiting Malinalco.

La forma que en los talladores de Malinalco trabajan la madera es todo un arte por lo regular sus piezas están talladas en un solo pedazo de madera, sus inspiraciones son la naturaleza, el misticismo de los antiguos aztecas. ellos se conectan con la madera para crear su figuras todo un deleite

Sanctuary of Chalma

Reviewed By Lucyjw101 - Mexico City, Mexico

We went here on a Sunday, which is probably the busiest day to go. I have great admiration for the genuine pilgrims who travel great distances to be here. We parked pretty close and walked down through the market streets selling tacky religious souvenirs and sweets. There were huge numbers of people, families and large groups carrying crosses and other religious icons and the area in front of the church and the church itself were very crowded. You can enter via a side entrance and go up to see behind the altar and see the Christ figure.
Outside the main church area is a river where many of the pilgrims rest and bathe. Again it's pretty crowded.
This was an interesting experience but if you're not there with religious intent it's probably not going to wow you.
