Hike up to Tepozteco, the ancient Aztec temple dedicated to Tepoztecatl, the god of the pulque drink. Overlooking the rustic village of Tepoztlan, known for its Mezcal production, the archaeological site consists of a 10 m (33 ft) high, pyramid-shaped temple perched on a sheer clifftop. On the strenuous uphill trek to the temple, you will pass through lush green rainforest, see waterfalls and rock formations, and perhaps spot the elusive coati. When you reach the pyramid, you will be rewarded with a vista of the town and verdant rainforest below.
