Tepozteco, Tepoztlan

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Hike up to Tepozteco, the ancient Aztec temple dedicated to Tepoztecatl, the god of the pulque drink. Overlooking the rustic village of Tepoztlan, known for its Mezcal production, the archaeological site consists of a 10 m (33 ft) high, pyramid-shaped temple perched on a sheer clifftop. On the strenuous uphill trek to the temple, you will pass through lush green rainforest, see waterfalls and rock formations, and perhaps spot the elusive coati. When you reach the pyramid, you will be rewarded with a vista of the town and verdant rainforest below. Work out when and for how long to visit Tepozteco and other Tepoztlan attractions using our handy Tepoztlan itinerary maker.

  • Visit the Tepozteco is a great ride for the family. Although climbing the Hill is a challenge and is somewhat difficult, but the view from the top, and the small area archaeology much worth the effort.

  • It coincided with the Carnival of Tepoztlan. We didn't know that there were so many people on those dates. Rise to the top of the Tepozteco requires patience and if: determination. What makes it complicated is that, although of a friendly and respectable height, the degree of inclination is more demanding. Put it thus: 1 h 30 aprox. Pure stairs, and in some sections, not as in good condition. However, and as the majority of our summits, the view is well worth and above all to the lower, enjoy the rich cultural and gastronomic, one of our favorite "magic people".
