Mountain Nature / Park
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.

  • A place is pretty cool, since the beginning of the climb, you can make a scale for breakfast / eating, buy souvenirs or start your journey, giving you a massage. Advisable to take up water is rising, something heavy but it's worth, on Sunday does not cost so you can go with the family. Top tomato awhile to relax enjoy the view and recharge batteries. Good trip.
