We left San Miguel on Friday morning July 6 and headed back to Mexico City for one last day. After arriving at the Central del Norte, we went straight to the bus marked "Pirámides" and started the 1 hour trip out to Teotihuácan - a perfect last day activity for Mexico.
As you probably know, this is one of the best archaeological sites in the world, with most of the buildings and pyramids still standing even though the site was deserted by the Aztecs years before the Spanish discovered Mexico. These sites near Mexico City are important because they represent the habitation of the area for thousands and thousands of years as the focal point for the population.
Plus, Pyramid of the Sun is the 3rd largest Pyramid in the world and, to Kryste's dismay, you can climb to the very top of it - sometimes even with the assistance of a handrail!
Anyway, here are some pictures of the site:
