After two weeks in Mexico City, we finally made it to the Aztec site of Teotihuacán, one of the largest premodern cities to have existed. We spent the afternoon roving up and down temples and soaking in cherished sun rays.
A visit to Teotihuacán makes for a perfect day trip from Mexico City. Getting there is only a one hour bus ride from Mexico City's Terminal Central de Autobuses del Norte. To purchase your bus tickets head towards Sala (Gate) 8 where you can get a round trip ticket for 100 pesos at the counter advertising destination Teotihuacán. Bring snacks because lunch options are scarce.
