Private Mexico City Daytrip: Archeology, convent and faith


Approximately an hour away from Mexico City, we find one of the great centers of indigenous Mesoamerica. "The place of the gods" appeared between 200 and 150 BC, reaching its pinnacle between 200 and 500 AD. We will stroll along the Avenue of the Dead to the pyramids of the sun and moon, which you can climb if you like. We will pay particular attention to the sculpted heads on Temple of Quetzalcóatl (the plumed serpent) and Tlaloc (god of storms, rain, water). We can combine the pyramids with a visit to the Basilica of Guadalupe and the lovely rural 16th century Augustinian ex-convent of Acolman.
For booking a 48 hours notice is requiered.

A Recent Review of this tour

The tour was entirely satisfactory. Hector is very knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. The pyramids were spectacular, and the restored areas of the ruins that we visited were impressive. We topped off the day with a visit to a magnificent 16th century church at a former Augustinian convent.
