Mexcaltitán de Uribe, Mexico

The brine pool's "shore" and surface ripples beneath the Gulf of Mexico.

  We have good reason to suspect that the meme of organized societies came by way of the sea borne Atlantean civilization.  These trade factories readily inspired indigenous societies to organize as well.  Of course, if an organized society already existed then an advanced  Atlantean society would easily fit in.

This place is were it should be and we are seeing sister sites all over now.

I suspect that the shut down of Atlantean mining in Lake superior led to a population movement south and this may well have been to this location..

 Legend says this tiny ancient island is the lost ancestral homeland of the Aztecs.

Ask questions about this place before you go or share your travel experiences.

The small, human-made island of Mexicaltitán in the western Mexico state of Nayarit is believed to be the location of the mythical city of Aztlán, the long lost birthplace of the Aztec civilization.

Legend tells that this quaint island village, which dates to the start of the 12th century, was the original home of the Aztecs before they abandoned the site to found the great city of Tenochtitlan in 1325.

There is little evidence to support the claim, although the streets of Mexicaltitán are laid out in a circular, cruciform pattern similar to Tenochtitlan, and Aztec mythology does suggest the civilization originated on an island.

Regardless of the veracity of the legend, the quiet island of Mexicaltitán de Uribe is well worth a visit. It is small and easily walked, and still relatively removed from the tourist trail, accessible only by boat. The residents traditionally dry shrimp and fish in the sun on the raised sidewalks of the island, which is crossed with canals and has been called the “Mexican Venice.” It is said that during the rainy season when the street is flooded, you can see the pigs swimming in the street.
