21 Ways You Can Be Indiana Jones In Mexico

Adventures that would surely unleash your inner Indiana Jones.

Do you have an adventurous soul? Are you in the mood for epic adventures and exploring breathtaking archaeological discoveries? Then, mi amigo, Mexico is the right destination for you! From awe-inspiring Aztec ruins to crazy perilous outdoor trips, Mexico has a world of thrills and adventures that would surely unleash your inner Indiana Jones. After all, Mexico is home to over 180 archaeological sites, with many of them designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Not a big fan of Indiana Jones? Don’t worry, as Mexico’s awesome adventures and archaeological sites will still give you a blast and unforgettable trip.

Here are 21 ways how you, a regular travel junkie, can become a legendary adventurer like Indiana Jones in Mexico:

1. Delve into the fabulous pyramids of Teotihuacan

Teotihuacan, fondly called as the “City of Gods”, is an ancient Aztec metropolis that features some of the world’s largest pyramids, such as the Pyramid of the Moon (Piramide de la Luna) and Pyramid of the Sun (Piramide del Sol). Of course, you have to delve into these pyramids and archaeological wonders, to become the Indiana Jones of Mexico. And, who knows? You might find some amazing discoveries, as you visit these pyramids.

Want to see Teotihuacan’s pyramids from an aerial perspective? Take a hot balloon ride, and get a load of these incredible ancient wonders from high above. Also, a balloon ride is, in my book, something that Indiana Jones would want to try in Teotihuacan.

2. See Chichen Itza in a way that Indiana Jones would

Chichen Itza, arguably the most sought-after archaeological attraction in Mexico, lures over a million of tourists every year, thanks to its striking main temple – El Castillo. In the late afternoons of autumn and spring equinoxes, El Castillo’s northwestern corner will cast a string of triangular shadows that would mesmerize beholders with an appearance of a long serpent zigzagging down its staircase.

3. Be awed by Cholula’s Great Pyramid

When it comes to size, very few pyramids in the world can rival Cholula’s Tlachihualtepetl, or also known as the Great Pyramid. As a matter of fact, it is greater in terms of volume that the Great Pyramid in Giza. But unlike your typical pyramids, the Tlachihualtepetl is often mistaken for a flourishing hill, thanks to the brush and grass that had overgrown on its giant wall.
