  • See Teotihuacan during a Mexican vacation

    2010-01-18

    A vacation filled with surf sand and mixed drinks is the typical image of a Mexican vacation. The county has gained a bit of a reputation for hard partying holidays, but many travelers are more interested in exploring the culture and history of the native peoples than sipping tequilas in a touristy taqueria. For those adventurers seeking to catch a glimpse of Mexican culture, Teotihuacan is an excellent first stop.

    Translated as "the City of the Gods," Teotihuacan is an ancient archaeological site located 31 miles northeast of Mexico City. The Aztec ruins date as far back as 500 BCE, yet remain in impeccable shape despite being sacked, burnt and abandoned nearly 1,500 years ago.

    It serves as home for some of the largest ancient pyramids in the world and was said to be the birthplace of modern astronomy, according to Advantage Mexico.

    Notable sites include the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl – a sacred temple adorned with many stone dragons and embellishments as a tribute to the benevolent deity.

    The historical complex also offers a variety of sights and tastes of the ancient world through the Museo Teotihuacan exhibit and Restaurante la Gruta.
