Teuchitlan (Guachimontones) Tips
Directions from Guadalajara:
Take Avenida Vallarta out of town (towards Vallarta). The road will split towards Tequila (cuota) and Ameca (libre)- bear left to go towards Tala/Ameca. Appx. 17 kilometers later you will pass Tala and then turn right into Teuchitlan (you will see blue signs for Guachimontones).
La Casa de Cultura Teuchitlán- a small musuem with a display of artifacts from Guachimontones and a half-hour video. Located at no. 10 Calle16 de Septiembre, one half block west of the main plaza in Teuchitlan. Open Tues-Sun 9:00-15:00, 10 pesos entrance.
Guachimontones- there are signs in town to get to the site. It is fairly rustic so hiking attire is advisable.
