The 6 Best Things to do Adventurous in San Juan Teotihuacan, Estado de Mexico

June 17, 2021 Randal Brittian

Teotihuacán is a town and municipality located in the State of Mexico. It is in the northeast of the Valley of Mexico, 45 km northeast of Mexico City and 119 km from the state capital of Toluca. Teotihuacan takes its name from the ancient city and World Heritage site that is located next to the municipal seat. "Teotihuacan" is from Nahuatl and means "place of the gods." In Nahua mythology the sun and the moon were created here. The seal of the municipality features the Pyramid of the Sun from the archeological site, which represents the four cardinal directions. The building is tied to a character that represents water which is linked to an arm that is joined to the head of an indigenous person who is seated and speaking. This person represents a god. Much of the history of the area has been tied to the ancient city, most recently involves controversy connected with commerce and development around the site.

Pros- incredible pyramids that you are still able to climb and get amazing views ! Cons- loads of people especially if you arrive after lunch Tips- arrive before 10 am; climb Sun Pyramid first ( to avoid the massive crowds and heat); then climb Moon Pyramid; bring water and sunscreen and a hat; you will spend about 4-6 hours if you have lunch at a local restaurant; no need for a guide if you have access to internet; check out sightdoing.net - How to visit Teotihuacan without a tour by Becky. Great website with step by step instructions including photos.

We booked the private tour with Sean and Flying Pictures and it was without doubt the most memorable activity of our trip to Mexico. Sean picked us up in the early hours of the morning - great conversation and stories en route about his life in a Mexico. We took the private balloon trip, wonderful operator, very calm and patient. Bottle of champagne on landing and then photos inside the balloon. Nice buffet breakfast and then .... Luis as a guide to take us around the pyramids. He was an incredible guide! His knowledge and care for the historic site was obvious with stories we will remember for a long time. Traffic back into the city was heavy but the driver kindly made a detour to another location en route that we requested that maximized our time in Mexico City. A well-organized and brilliant private tour from start to finish. Cannot rate highly enough! Thank you!

Teotihuacan Pyramids

Reviewed By leahau - Regina, Canada

Teotihuacán pyramids are incredible. Pyramid of the sun abs pyramid of the moon can both be climbed, as well as some smaller pyramids. The steps are rough and very steep and sometimes uneven. They have hand rails on most sections of the climb up and down. Beautiful views from both pyramids. There is also locals selling their handicrafts at the entrance and exit as well as within the site. I didn’t notice any water being sold so being your own. It can get very hot. There are bathrooms near the entrance. When we arrived we were asked if we wanted a free history tour. We followed a lady in her motorbike to a little store where someone talked about the agave plant and we sampled some tequila. Then we were asked to look through their store. — avoid this if you do not want to purchase anything or get the “history” which wasn’t actually given. Highly recommend this visit. It’s a ways out of Mexico City, but worth the drive.
