Teotihuacan and Tlatelolco—pre-Hispanic archaeological parks in Mexico—were once sister cities, but most tourists only have time to visit one set of ruins at a time. During this unique and action-packed combo tour departing from Mexico City, you’ll get a first-hand peek at two of the country’s top historical sites in a single visit.
Head first to Tlatelolco, the former capital of the Aztec Empire. During an in-depth guided tour, you’ll learn about the golden age of the 14th-century market city, when 60,000 buyers came to sell their goods each day. Discover the impressive ruins of the city’s main temple and stand in the Plaza of the Three Cultures, which honors pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern Mexico.
Stop at the Shrine of Guadalupe, one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage sites in the world, before heading to Teotihuacan for an unforgettable look at its massive stepped pyramids, some dating back to the 1st century. Learn how the city, which translates to the “place where the gods were created,” served as one of Mesoamerica’s main cultural centers during an informative guided stroll through the park.
