Tula Day Trips from Mexico City

Tula Day Trips from Mexico City

Once the capital of the Toltec empire and one of the largest cities in Mesoamerica, the ancient city of Tollan, now Tula, thrived from the 9th to the 12th  century. Exploring the remarkably preserved ruins is a popular choice for a day trip from Mexico City. Here are your best Tula day-trip options. 

Highlights

  • Explore the ancient temple pyramids, palaces, and ball courts on a walking tour.

  • Marvel at the dramatic Temple of Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli with its 16-foot-tall (5-meter-tall) warrior statues.

  • Learn more about the rise and fall of the Toltec empire from your guide.

  • Combine a visit to Tula with a tour of the Jesuit convent of Tepotzotlán, the colonial city of Querétaro, or the Teotihuacan archaeological site.

Things to Know

  • Tula is about 60 miles (96 kilometers) north of Mexico City, a journey of about two hours by road.

  • Day tours from Mexico City typically last between seven and 10 hours.

  • Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes—the ground at the archaeological site can be uneven in places.

  • Most tours include hotel pickup and entrance fees. Some tours may include meals or stop at a restaurant where you can purchase lunch.

  • For a more personalized experience, opt for a private tour and explore at a pace that suits you.
