Showcat,

I'm not aware of any. AFAIK, the Mayans inhabited the Yucatan Peninsula and the island of Cozumel.

Norm.

The Monte Alban Zapotec ruins are amazing but they are about a five hour drive from Puerto Escondido. It is best to see these as a land cruise to Oaxaca, which is an amazing city to visit.

Check out these ruins on the web. Even just pictures are worth seeing.
