This wasn 't due to its central main street where locals liked to take afternoon strolls, lined with old brickwork boutiques and candy shops.

The late Post-Classic period begins during the late 12th century, after the Toltec were gone and the Chichimec people began to arrive. These people were linguistically related to the Toltecs and to the Mexica people. They'd begun moving into Mesoamerica and encroaching upon the Maya, whom themselves were already being pushed north because of the changed environment.
