San Juan Teotihuacan

Heavy Traffic

We arrived in San Juan Teotihuacan and immediately headed to the Teotihuacan RV Park where we’d heard we could set up our tent.

The owner was extremely welcoming and immediately told us that we could pitch our tent anywhere and that we could leave our bikes there if we wanted to go into Mexico City by bus to explore. Awesome!

The pyramids of Teotihuacan are impressive and are thought to date back to 100BC. The ‘histories’ of these massive structures and their surrounding “living quarters” and avenues are full of mysteries and conjecture, so it is indeed a place where you can allow your imagination to wander. Who built these structures? Where did they go? How is it that mica is contained in every structure at Teotihuacan, but the closest it can be found in nature is Brazil? Human sacrifices? Pyramids dedicated to the Sun and Moon? It's nice to have all of these questions to ponder if you haven’t hiked 20 flights of stairs in a while and you're a bit out of breath and in need of a break
