Afterward, we will go to Tula - another a Mesoamerican archeological site, which was an important regional center that reached its height as the capital of the Toltec Empire between the fall of Teotihuacan and the rise of Tenochtitlan. Upon arrival, for about 2h hours we will tour the site seeing huge stone sculptures of Toltec warriors (“Atlantes”), ruins of ancient temples, and reliefs depicting local gods and sacred animals. Once ready, we will move back to Mexico City to visit the National Museum of Anthropology - the largest and most visited museum in Mexico that contains significant archaeological and anthropological artifacts from Mexico's pre-Columbian heritage. Finally, after a full day of discoveries, return to our vehicle & relax on the way back to your accommodation.
