Mexico City makes a great base for exploring more of Mexico’s central highland region. Visitors who venture beyond city limits will find colonial towns, ancient archaeological sites and spectacular natural attractions. Here are five unique destinations that make excellent day trips from Mexico City.

1) Teotihuacán

Less than an hour’s drive northeast of Mexico City, the ancient Aztec ruins at Teotihuacán have become one of the most popular day trips from Mexico City. Teotihuacán is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the towering Pirámide del Sol (Pyramid of the Sun), the third-largest pyramid in the world, and the Pirámide de la Luna (Pyramid of the Moon). The Pyramid of the Moon and 12 temple platforms surrounding it are believed to be a massive stone representation of the Aztec calendar.
