La Florida

It was developed mainly during the Classic period (250-900 AD) and shows the characteristics of a small pre-Hispanic village, where flint tools were manufactured and marketed.

The social organization was established from extended families, who shared a housing area organized around one or several courtyards. The occupation of each individual was determined by the social group and gender. The men worked in agriculture, hunting and construction, while the women were responsible for the activities of the house and raising children.

Although there are no pyramidal structures in La Florida, there are several palatial buildings. La Florida has a wash with water for nine months of the year. The source of water in which is a flint which was used as a hunting tool or to cut limestone.
