Teotihuacan: the place where men become gods


Teotihuacan in Nahuatl means “The land where men become gods”.

When visiting Mexico City, be sure to set aside a day to explore the ancient city of Teotihuacan. It was the largest pre-Colombian city in the Americas, with a population of around 150,000 at its peak. As the legend goes, this is the place where the gods planned the creation of man.

If you’re into ancient ruins, the best time to visit Mexico to see the sites without tons of tourists would be during the shoulder season in April or May.
