Hotel Villas Arqueologicas -
Periférico Sur S/N • San Juan Teotihuacan • Estado de México, México 55800
Villas Arqueologicas Teotihuacan stands at the end of the Calzada de los Muertos (Avenue of the Dead), an ancient road at the center of Teotihuacan’s archaeological site, one of the most important and beautiful in the world. Along the same Calzada stands the magnificent Piramide del Sol (Pyramid of the Sun), arguably Mexico’s most recognized landmark.
Influenced by an Aztec heritage, the Hotel Villas Teotihuacan shows detailed mosaic tiles that adorn the public spaces, while a series of fountains provide a joyful song in the background. The 42 guestrooms are built around a central courtyard that features a large, refreshing pool and patio restaurant. Elegant fireplaces compliment both the bar and the restaurant. The Villas Arqueologicas Teotihuacan Archaeological Villas also have four meeting rooms available for your conferences or business meetings.
Arrival To and Departure From Mexico City
Our journey together begins at the hotel, but it is recommended to fly into Mexico City, Mexico. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the Benito Juarez Mexico City airport (MEX).
When you first arrive change over money, so you will be able to pay from your transportation.
From USA- Many airlines have direct flights from Los Angeles, Houston and New York to Mexico City including AeroMexico, Alaska, Volaris, Horizon, Aerolitoral, and United.
More options are available if connecting through another U.S. city.
From Europe- Most commercial airlines link Mexico directly to Europe. It is always worth to compare flight offers from aircarriers who can bring you to Mexico City or Cancun via many european hubs, like Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid.....the flight duration from those cities is always approx. 11 hours (+ your connecting flight from home, if you do not board directly at the mentioned airports)
From Australia or New Zealand- Fly from either Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne or Auckland(NZ) direct to Los Angeles. Delta, Qantas, United, and V Australia offer non-stop air service from Australia to Los Angeles. Air New Zealand offers one-stop air service from Australia and non-stop air service from Auckland to Los Angleles. Hawaiian Airlines and Air Tahiti Nui offer one- or two-stop air service to Los Angeles from Australia and New Zealand.
For your departure, airlines request to do the check-in 3hrs prior to the departure of international flights, and it takes one hour to get from the hotel to the airport during normal business hours. We ask you to schedule your flight back home after 3PM, so we can leave the hotel at aprox 11 AM.
Arriving to Teotihuacan
By taxi. You can arrive to Teotihuacan by taxi. It takes about 45 minutes from Mexico City if you use the toll highway. A taxi is about $70 USD (depending on current exchange rates).
If you are flying in, make sure to prepay for the taxi in one of the kiosks at the baggage claim area.
By bus. During daylight hours, Autobuses México-San Juan Teotihuacán runs buses from Mexico City’s Terminal Norte to the ruins (MX$35, one hour) every 15 minutes from 7am to 6pm. When entering the Terminal Norte, turn left and walk to the second-last desk on the concourse. Make sure your bus is headed for ‘Los Pirámides, ’ not the nearby town of San Juan Teotihuacán. Buses arrive and depart from near Gate 1, also making stops at Gates 2 and 3. Return buses are more frequent after 1pm. The last bus back to Mexico City leaves at 6pm; some terminate at Indios Verdes metro station, but most continue to Terminal Norte.
