Food at Monte Albán

There are no dining facilities inside the Archeological Zone itself, however picnic tables are available next to the car park with benches in the shade of trees and with views of the countryside around.

Don't forget to take plenty of water with you as the ruins themselves have no shelter and during the summer months may find climbing the steps of the various platforms to be tiring.
