That would be because México, where these Aztec structures are located, is a nation of Spanish speakers. It's representing both Iberian and Latin American cultures.

Either that or the staff just thought Aztec buildings are cool.

Yeah, I thought that, but then they should do the same with english and portuguese.

I agree, especially since the U.S isn't the birthplace of English.

Right, that could be a problem, but I don't think they'll do a Nahuatl course for now.

Indeed, not for now probably, but I do believe the Duolingo team has expressed interest in developing courses for endangered/small languages. Irish is already in the incubator, for instance.
