Mexico has two of the world’s three largest pyramids in the world: The third largest is right in Teotihuacán (The Pyramid of the Sun). Climb to the top for some great views of the whole valley with a one-day guided tour. The Pyramid of the Moon stands on the north end of the site and climbing it will take you nearly to the height of the Pyramid of the Sun. That is because it’s built on higher ground.
Our Teotihuacan tour also takes you to other areas that are just as exciting as the pyramids. There are plazas, courtyards, and other palaces to explore at this archaeological site. The Palace of Jaguars, the Palace of the Quetza Butterfly and the Palace of Tepantitla are some examples of what is to be explored.
At the entrance to the site, you may see a group of men dressed in traditional costumes gathering around a tall pole. These are the Papantla Flyers. They climb the pole, and while one sits on the top playing a flute, the others fly down the pole in circles.
Teotihuacan is located about 30 miles northwest from Mexico City. Our journey begins right at your hotel and takes about an hour by road, depending on where you are staying. It is open 365 days a year, form 9 am to 5 pm. You can take advantage that Teotihuacan is one of the country’s sites which do not close on Mondays.
A special permit is required if you want to use a tripod to take photographs at this archaeological site, but otherwise, you can take selfies practically everywhere. A small fee is asked for the use of hand-held video equipment though. Comfortable walking shoes are required.
Please dress up with light clothes that allow your skin to breathe and keep yourself hydrated. We take care of the transportation and the entrance tickets.
We get to Teotihuacan early to avoid crowds and extreme climate, but you can also ask for our 11 am departures. Take on consideration that the earliest we arrive, the exploration of the site will be more enjoyable. Early admission will also give us the opportunity to avoid the rush of traffic leaving the site later in the afternoon.
Teotihuacan is quite hotter and fiercer than it is in Mexico City. Be sure to wear proper clothes and take your sun screen; you will need it. A hat and sunglasses would be a good idea too. Allow us to take you into a fantastic journey to discover together all the secrets of this ancient culture, which played a key role on Mexico´s ancient history.
