More information coming soon!
Tepoztlán is located just one hour away from Mexico City and known as a mystic center.
On the mountaintop is Tepozteco, a pyramid built 700 years ago by Aztecs. Tepoztlán’s fascinating history is peopled with conquistadors and missionaries, and more recently the city has attracted mystical and UFO seekers, tourists and Mexico City sophisticates seeking a weekend retreat. Besides being thick with myth and history, Tepoztlán is walkable, and the weather is mild.
Should you care to honor Tepoztecatl, the pyramid honoring the god of fertility and pulque — call it Aztec moonshine — a path that rises 1,300 feet in 1.2 miles will bring you to Tepozteco. The hike offers a splendid view of town and mountains, a vista made dreamy by shifting mists.
Horses occasionally join the cars and pedestrians on Tepoztlán’s Avenida Tepozteco. The town’s actual main drag, it leads past ancient walls, bold-colored eateries and modest lodgings before giving way to the path to the pyramid.

What does it mean?
