The native population of the colonial Province of Soconusco, New Spain, cultivated cacao throughout the Spanish colonial period, which provided the means for acquiring relatively large quantities of Spanish-introduced goods. This paper examines the extent to which other aspects of the archaeological record—the settlement pattern, house construction, and indigenous—tradition artifacts—exhibited change and continuity from the Late Postclassic to Spanish colonial periods.
