Teotihuacan Pyramids

Roughly 30 miles Northeast of Mexico City, Teotihuacan is a must-see. We will begin our visit at the Pyramid of the Feathered Serpent where current excavations have found an important underground tunnel with unprecedented relics (unfortunately the dig is off limits).  From there we will walk along the Avenue of the Dead narrating the history of the people who built this well-planned urban center, talking about when it was built, why it was built there and what happened to their civilization. We will have the opportunity to enter at least one superimposed pyramid (a structure buried inside another pyramids), and of course climb to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun and/or the Pyramid of the Moon (optional!).

Depending on your interest and availability of time, we can visit one or two on-site museums, and an Indian cooperative workshop to see how obsidian is sculpted today, learn about the products extracted from the local maguey cactus.

The time of this visit can range from 3 to 6 hours – depending on what you want to see.  There are nearby habitational areas open to the pu’d like to explore the housing compounds of the Teotihuacanos, and two on-site museums, both well worth it. Transportation can be arranged if requested (travel time is approximately one hour each way).
