Teotihuacan is one of the most popular tourist attractions for backpackers. Teotihuacan is known as the City of Gods. And it was once the sixth-largest city in the world.
It truly is an impressive archaeological site and I recommend to anyone visiting Mexico City to visit Teotihuacan.
I spent a whole day here and I had a complete blast. I met some friends at DF Suites Hostel and we headed out to Teotihuacan in the morning and didn’t get back until late afternoon.
There’s a lot of steps involved in a lot of walking so make sure you bring water in walking shoes. It was hot as hell the day that we went and I don’t think it will be much different when you go so make sure you’re prepared. Depending on how many pyramids you decide to walk up, you might be walking thousands and thousands of steps that day. And since you’re only going to be there one day, why not go up all of them?
