The ruins of Teotihuacán near Mexico City

Is the name Teotihuacán familiar to you?   If not, take note, for the pyramids and palaces of this place are thought to be the most significant not only in Mexico but possibly in the world.   This is a city that reached its peak during the period 250-700 AD and it was home to the richest and most powerful empire in Mexico. Covering more than 30 sq km, the site includes the huge Pyramid del Sol, an area known as the Citadel packed with monuments and an informative museum.

  1. Would love to visit here, I have been to Chichen Itza which is amazing. If you’re holidaying in Playa del Carmen / Cancun area make the trip, I know it’s a long journey but well worth it! Such an amazing civilisation and there’s so much they still don’t really know about it, it’s fascinating. Having seen Chichen Itza these ruins near Mexico City must be something else, would love to combine that with a visit to Mexico City itself.
