Thursday, December 30

Olmec Head Today, we’ll get up early to be the first to enter Teotihuacan. Teotihuacan was one of the world’s greatest cities from AD 100 to AD 700. The Pyramid of the Sun might be the largest Precolumbian structure in the New World (Rick’s colleagues at El Mirador would disagree.), and the third largest pyramid in the world. The Temple of the Feathered Serpent, where more than 200 sacrifices were part of the temple dedication, was the political center of the city. Teotihuacan is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Hotel: Hotel Quinto Sol
Meals: B, L, D

pyramidAfter Teotihuacan fell, the next great Mesoamerican empire was the Toltecs (ca. AD 900-1100). We will visit their capital, Tula, and its magnificent warrior figures (ca. 90min from Teotihuacan). Drive (3-3.5hrs.) to San Miguel de Allende, and enjoy a leisurely late-afternoon cerveza around the Jardin, before the New Year’s Eve festivities begin.

Serpent TemplsGet up late after all the New Year’s Eve festivities and spend a peaceful day exploring San Miguel. Last year Travel and Leisure called San Miguel de Allende the “Best City in the World” for the second year in a row! Between the beautiful colonial architecture, the great food, and the city’s festive attitude, it isn’t hard to tell why. San Miguel de Allende is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

MonarchsValle de Bravo. Get ready to take a big item off your bucket list: the mass wintering of Monarch butterflies. We’ll hike (or horseback part-way) up into the oyamel fir forests where the butterflies, massing for warmth and to breed, fill the trees. This option involves an uphill hike at approx. 10,000’ elevation, so it won’t be suitable for all travelers. The Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage property.
