Home to perhaps the most impressive of Mexico's archaeological sites, San Juan Teotihuacan provides easy access to the World Heritage-listed "City of Gods," the largest pre-Columbian urban center in the Americas. Sightseeing in San Juan Teotihuacan starts with visits to some of the largest pyramids in the world, built centuries ago by a long-extinct Mesoamerican culture. Just 50 km (30 mi) from Mexico City, this site makes an ideal day-trip idea for anthropology and history buffs. Climbing the majestic structures remains a top thing to do in San Juan Teotihuacan, where history remains palpable and every step transports you farther back in time. Use our Mexico trip planner to arrange your visit to San Juan Teotihuacan and any other destinations in Mexico that take your fancy.

Where to stay in San Juan Teotihuacan

With many visitors opting to visit the nearby historical site of Teotihuacan on a day-trip from Mexico City, San Juan Teotihuacan itself doesn't offer too much in the way of accommodations. Your best bet is to look for a mid-range hotel, homestay, or "posada" around the city center, with Calle Canteroco offering a few options. You can also find some alternatives just south of the historic site itself, in San Sebastian Xolalpa.
