Home to perhaps the most impressive of Mexico's archaeological sites, San Juan Teotihuacan provides easy access to the World Heritage-listed "City of Gods," the largest pre-Columbian urban center in the Americas.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Wed): make a trip to Pyramid of the Sun, then explore the ancient world of Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan, and then stop by Comercializadora Artesanal Teotihuacan. Here are some ideas for day two: delve into the distant past at Ex Convent of Acolman, then explore the ancient world of Tecoaque (Sultepec), and then look for all kinds of wild species at Reino Animal.
