Tepotzotlán Vacation Packages

Gaze up at the arches of a Jesuit aqueduct and browse the displays of a museum in a 16th-century college.

Tepotzotlán is a historical Pueblo Mágico, or Magic Town, in the outskirts of Mexico City. It is known for its fascinating Aztec, Jesuit and colonial Spanish history, which is presented in its many museums. Get a glimpse into local culture and history by walking through the historic center.

One city highlight is the National Museum of the Viceroyalty, which has a vast collection of artworks and historic objects from the colonial period. Learn about the Jesuits in Tepotzotlán from the permanent exhibits in the 16th-century San Francisco Javier Temple. Admire the stunning main altar in the chapel and see works of art by such Mexican masters as Miguel Cabrera and Higinio de Chávez.

Enjoy the warm days and mild nights year-round with a trip to the Xochitla Ecological Park. The driest months are February and March, which is an ideal time to stroll through the landscape gardens of the eco-park.

Among the highlights in the region is the Xalpa Aqueduct, which historically carried water from the Oro River to the town. Capture photos of the majestic aqueduct, also known as Arcos del Sitio, with over 40 arches across four tiers. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the shadow of the structure’s immense columns. The tallest part stands over a gorge at a height of about 200 feet (60 meters).

Make your way to the visitor center of the eco-park that incorporates the aqueduct. Learn about the environment and spot amphibians, reptiles and birds. Horseback-riding and zip-line rides are among the fun activities in this hilly park.

Arrive at the Mexico City International Airport and drive north for about 1 hour to get to this quaint town. It is about 30 miles (45 kilometers) north of the nation’s capital in the State of Mexico. See the sights of other towns in the area, such as Toluca and Metepec.

Tepotzotlán is a charming and historic town surrounded by gorgeous scenery. Note that the town’s name is Nahuatl for Among Humpbacks, in reference to the hilly surroundings.
