Toniná, Chiapas, 29200

The Basics

Toniná’s importance as a ceremonial center peaked between 600 and 900 AD. Now, the vast archeological site encompasses more than 90 excavated buildings, spread over seven hillside terraces. Most visitors arrive independently from San Cristóbal de las Casas or Ocosingo, although it’s worth visiting with a local guide to get a better understanding of the site. Don’t miss the star attraction, the towering hilltop Acropolis—the views over the Ocosingo Valley from the top are incredible.

Other Archaeological Sites in Chiapas

Chiapas, sandwiched between Oaxaca, Veracruz, Campeche, and Guatemala, is home to numerous notable ruins, alongside Toniná. Palenque is arguably the best-known site in the state, and well-worth a visit; however, don’t miss the Chinkultic ruins either, which form part of the Lagunas de Montebello National Park.
