Visit the hottest UFO spot in Mexico with your local guide!


Surrounded by mysterious legends of hidden alien temples, cities under the beautiful, and the lush valley of "ElTepozteco", you will visit a small town, full of colors and flavors, where you will get to eat in different spots through the day, such as the main market, and other restaurants. You will also get to visit the pyramid on top of the valley and try some of the delicious local drinks, such as pulque. We make a stop at the convent and its museum, rich in history.
This is the hottest spot in Mexico for UFO sightings too by the way, and we might get to see one if lucky. Talking to locals, you will hear amazing stories from them too!!
We'll try a temazcal session if you are up for it. A temazcal ([temasˈkal]) is a type of sweat lodge which originated with pre-Hispanic Indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica.
Finally, at the end of the day, we'll make a stop for a couple drinks at one of the local bars, before coming back to the city.
NOTE: We can do different types of Eco-tourism activities such as hiking.

A Recent Review of this tour

Enrique was a wonderful guide and our trip to Tepotzlan was a highlight of our trip! We started out by visiting a local chocolate shop to get some caffeine before hiking up the mountain. Great way to start the morning! He was knowledgeable yet laid-back in his style, and after the hike, took us to a wonderful place for lunch and ice cream, and finished off at the market. Well paced for our family of various physical abilities. And he was so generous to get us a handicraft gift and a taste of Pulque.
