Teotihuacan Pyramids, Mexico

The Sun Pyramid in Teotihuacan, Mexico

If you visit Mexico City, do not skip out on the Teotihuacan Pyramids. Book a tour out of Mexico City, they’ll arrange your transportation to the Pyramids, and bring you by other sites on the way. Your hotel or hostel should be able to book the tour for you. You’ll likely get a chance to try different Agave based liquors, including Tequila and Mezcal and get a traditional Mexican meal. Walk from the Moon Pyramid down Avenue of the Dead towards the Sun Pyramid. Climb the Sun Pyramid, touch the Abalone, and climb down. If you arrive at peak hours plan to spend some time waiting in line to climb the Sun Pyramid as limited numbers of people are allowed up at any given time. The stairs are steep and narrow, and its a long ways up, but its worth the climb.
