Teotihuacán

Estado de México

This Pueblo Mágico is located in Estado de Mexico, and is only 45 minutes away from the Mexican capital. San Juan Teotihuacán has earned the title of Pueblo Encantado (Enchanted Town) thanks to the preservation of its culture and the integration of the modernity without modifying its historical past. If you are planning a visit to Teotihuacán, how to get there and what to do, here we will give you in detail some of its activities that you will find unforgettable.

There are all kinds of hotels in San Juan Teotihuacán, for all preferences and budgets. It is important to consider making a reservation if you are planning to enjoy some activities that the area offers; like flying over the archaeological area in a hot air balloon. This experience takes place before dawn, that is why you will need a full night's rest in order to be full of energy to enjoy every bit of your ride.

The visit to the Exconvento de San Juan is an excellent recommendation to take good pictures, especially if architecture is your thing or if you are looking for something worth sharing on Instagram. It was founded almost 500 years ago and it is one of the most recognizable postcards seen in downtown. Its simplicity on the outside is deceptive, because on the inside, it is meticulously decorated with ornamental arches and the figure of the patron saint, that stands out in the center. Each space of the site is a true architectural feat.

If your visit started on a Sunday and you have decided to stay one or two nights there, maybe you will convince yourself even more if we tell you that Mondays are market on wheels days, which means that you could buy handicrafts, typical food, some handmade dishes or take one of its beautiful cacti to put it in your living room.

You can also be sure that your purchase will be satisfaction guaranteed, because the prices and the originality of its products are a plus. San Juan Teotihuacán is just 40 minutes away from Mexico City. If you are planning your visit to this destination, we recommend you to avoid the rainy season that takes place in July and September.
