Ecatepec Sights and Landmarks Guide, Mexico

Ecatepec Sights – General Area Information

San Cristobal Ecatepec de Morelos is situated in the state of Mexico and has a central position in the Mexican territory. It is about 20 kilometers away from Mexico City and is mostly known for being an industrial zone that functions near the capital city. Here you can find factories of several international corporations, as the work force comes cheaper than in other places. It is the perfect place to visit if you want to learn more about the local Mexican culture and lifestyle, as you are sure to find lots of music, dancing and delicious local cuisine. You know how those Mexican restaurants in your town never seem to do the trick? Well, when you get there you will be able to experiment all the tacos and burritos you ever dreamt of, top quality!

Ecatepec Sights – Do It the Mexican Way

Ecatepec is the city that can offer you a genuine feel of Mexico. As it is not necessarily tourist-oriented, you are sure to come in contact with the authentic Mexican society which you will surely love if you are the more adventurous and risk-taking type. If you expect anything fancy from your trip to Ecatepec this is not the place for you. However, if you enjoy roaming the streets by yourself you are very likely to discover little delightful wonders, which range from small places where you can eat local dishes to very cheap antique shops and handicrafts. If you have trouble in getting around or picking a place to eat your dinner, just ask the locals, they will be more than happy to help you out. If, however, you are looking for a more organized experience, you can always take a one day trip to see the nearby Oaxaca Sights which can offer you high class tourist services.

Ecatepec Sights – The Archaeological Sites

Mexico is definitely a place for traditional cultural experiences, so if you choose Ecatepec as your destination you are just thirty minutes away from one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in Mexico, Teotihuacan. This is a much frequented tourist destination and it houses some of the largest pre-Columbian pyramidal structures: The Pyramid of the Sun and The Pyramid of the Moon are connected through the so-called Avenue of the Dead, which is known for its very well preserved colorful murals. If you are further interested in discovering both historical and natural Mexican sites, we recommend a trip to Huatulco, where you can explore the jungle and maybe discover some new archaeological sites yourself!
