After a long walk at the Teotihuacan Pyramids, we were taken to a restaurant named “El Jaguar”. The tour guide didn’t tell us why it is called as such, but it was a very nice place.
There were even performances while we were having a sumptuous lunch and I managed to take a short video:
My colleagues told me to try the cactus leaves dish (I forgot the name) but I was so hungry that I opted to take the buffet. There was a wide selection of dishes and dessert and it costs 200+ Mexican pesos. I only tried the dishes that looked familiar.
I cannot use any gps tracking devices because it would definitely cost me. But I was told that the Teotihuacan Pyramids is northeast of Mexico City.
One word that describes this place: amazing. When you’re in Mexico City, this is the place that you should not miss.
The Pyramid of Moon:
The Pyramid of the Sun:
Did I climb these two pyramids? No. We arrived there at almost 12 noon. I was dehydrated, hungry, and I am scared of really steep steps. It would have been better if there were railings, but there was none. I had many bad experiences with stairs so I decided not to climb alone.
And, let’s take a closer look at some of the smaller pyramids:
When going to the pyramids, don’t forget to take a hat (umbrella would be a lot better) and a bottle of water.
The original plan was to have me stay here in Mexico City for just three weeks. I only have two weekends so I must visit a place that I should not miss when staying in Mexico City: the Teotihuacan Pyramids.
Fortunately, the hotel has endorsed Zepeda Tours for a day trip at the Teotihuacan Pyramids. It only cost 400 Pesos (about 40SGD), lunch not included. But, it’s still cheap! On that day, there were 8 other people on the same tour. I was the only one from Asia, and the rest were from Latin America. It was kind of lonely (without someone to take my photos ) but they were really friendly so it was cool.
The site is about an hour away from the city. The ride on the van was quite comfortable and I learned a lot about Mexico from the tour guide. Before I post photos of the pyramids, I would like to show you the interesting sceneries along the way. Enjoy the ride!
