Teotihuacán and family dinner

Get out of the city! Go beyond the usual tourist bus experience, on this tour you literally take you out of Mexico City to see the Teotihuacan pyramids, tasting local "delights" like cactus candies, enjoy ancient pre-Hispanic techniques and have dinner with a local family in their own home. The best: visits support family businesses, for an unparalleled experience. Ancient pyramids, a quaint city, local businesses and a cozy family dinner ... sounds like a recipe for an incredible day out of Mexico City! Leave Mexico City by public transport, experiencing how locals move through this busy city to the archaeological site of the Teotihuacan pyramids, where they will learn about the incredible culture that once developed here and all the mysteries that still surround this site. While touring this incredible city you will see the Pyramid of the Moon, the Causeway of the Dead and the Pyramid of the Sun, the highest and most spectacular in the area, 63 meters to the top (and yes, we will go to the top). After exploring the pyramids, we will continue enjoying the streets of a nearby town. Our first stop will take us to a family business where we will learn about 'obsidian' - the material that Teotihuacan people use as the main element to make their tools, idols and decorations. In addition, you can enjoy an ancient sacred drink called pulque, which is extracted from the heart of the maguey (another type of cactus), considered by some as the great-grandfather of tequila. In the second stop we will visit the cactus products factory, where you will find jams, sweets, spicy sweets, alcoholic creams and more products made by local people from endemic vegetation such as nopal, xoconostle and tuna (a cactus fruit, not tuna!), plus you can see all the varieties of cactus in this small family factory. To end our trip, we will visit a local family for dinner. Their dishes have no comparison in Teotihuacan, so we will be in good hands to try some traditional dishes. The menu is family choice of course taking into account allergies or restrictions, but there are always delicious options for each palate. You will be welcome to your home where Mexican traditions arise anywhere. After dinner, we will head back to Mexico City, happy, full and relaxed from our wonderful day exploring life outside the hustle and bustle of the big city.
