Just outside of Mexico City are some of the grandest pyramids in the world. Constructed in the second and third century, the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon are some of the largest pyramids in the world. However, Teotihuacán is more than vast pyramids, here you can find the best examples of pre-hispanic muralism, sculpture, and view one of the first convents in the Americas. Teotihuacán, known as the city of Gods, is something you can’t miss. Local Guide Pablo or Fernanda will join you so you can see beyond the eyes of a typical tourist.
You'll visit the main archaeological site, first discovered and opened in 1910, where the famously enormous pyramids reside. But beyond that, you can also visit two nearby archaeological sites where some of the best pre-Hispanic frescoes and murals live. You can choose between heading to the convent of Acolman, one of the first Catholic convents in New Spain, or you can visit the 16th-century aqueduct that was recently named a UNESCO Heritage Site where you will view one of the best examples of the collaboration between European and Mesoamerican engineering. Another more traditional option is the Basilica of Guadalupe, or if you prefer to relax, you can stop for a typical Mexican lunch near Teotihuacan. Uncover ancient mysteries on this tour through history.

I was always interested in the cultural history of my home country of Mexico, which led me to study history and anthropology. I am currently working on my masters in anthropology at UAM in Mexico City, but I’ve always been just as interested in discovering my city and its history through exploration on my own, as in the classroom. Recently I've put my knowledge and passion to use to share my city with travelers. I love being able to discuss everything from Mexican identity to local politics and social issues with travelers to give them an in depth understanding of my country.
History has always fascinated me which is why I studied history at UNAM. I was always interested in how Mexico and Mexico City developed into what they are today and so I studied its social and political history in the 20th century. One of my favorite neighborhoods in Mexico City is Coyoacan, firstly because I’ve lived there all my life, and secondly because of the way colonial influences and modern society collide there. I love being able to share my knowledge with travelers around the world and help them understand Mexico.
