We will get involved in all sorts of adventures. From meeting people for drinks at cantinas or bars to learning new things in amazing workshops. We will go to all sorts of events from art expositions to music shows. We'll go to beautiful pueblos around Mexico to discover the food and crafts.

Itinerary

- Pick up at your hotel or requested location
- First stop could be climbing up the Pyramid of the Sun (not the whole site, we'd do the Pyramid of the Sun and then we leave the site)
- We pay a visit to my friends in San Martin de Las Piramides who are local artisans, and we could visit other artisans of different styles such as carpenters, foods, etc. . .
- We go to the local market to buy some groceries
- We visit another good friend who lives in the mountain in front of the city and which they believed to be the protector of their city. It is a sacred mountain and with a beautiful view of the Teotihuacan pyramids. We will make an amazing Guacamole and a salsa in a volcanic rock mortar. Maybe a BBQ too and some drinks (from coffee to beer, please let me know)
- Drop off at your hotel at around 6:30 pm

NOTE: This is just an example of an itinerary that will show you a different side of Teotihuacan or in any case, of any area we visit. You will see it from a local's perspective
