near Rancho el Bajío, Jalisco (Mexico)

This is a rock about 4 meters long with a flat top, upon which you can find a large number of petroglyphs, many of them fertility symbols.

HOW TO GET THERE WITH GOOGLE MAPS: Easy. Just type in "N20.13539 W103.17614" which will take you right to the parking spot. Then follow the walking directions below.

HOW TO GET THERE ON YOUR OWN: From Guadalajara, take highway 54 toward Colima for about 36 kilometers and turn off onto highway 15, signposted “Morelia.” After 20 kilometers, follow the Jiquilpan sign and keep going another 33 kilometers to the Mazamitla turnoff, just past Tuxcueca. Set your trip odometer at zero here. Now turn right and drive towards Mazamitla. After 2.7 kilometers, you will see a small dirt road on your right (N20.13539 W103.17614). Pull off onto this road and park. Now walk up the road (east)180 meters. Look north and you should see a couple large rocks about 60 meters from you. One is the Mystery Rock. Go over the guard rail (at N20.13537 W103.17446) and walk 75 meters north to the Mystery Rock (N20.13601 W103.17468). Driving time is just over an hour from Guadalajara and much less from Ajijic and Chapala.


Climb over guard rail and go down from road toward Mystery Rock.
