TENOCHTITLAN: Aztec Ruins in the Heart Mexico City
Tenochtitlan was a large Mexica city-state located under much of what is now known as the historic center of Mexico City.
It is quite remarkable that an entire ancient Aztec city exists under the city. The ancient city discovered when a local worker was drilling to access electricity cables.
Once found, the government had two square blocks excavated by demolishing the existing buildings. Additionally, there are places throughout the Zocalo where you can see the ruins below ground.

“Let’s go” has pretty much been our life’s motto since we met nearly 25 years ago. We met in New York, moved to San Diego together, and married in Lake Tahoe – all within five months. When you know, you know – you know what we mean?
Now, after raising two adventure-seeking boys, we are ready to get out and explore some more. Our children have begun their lives and now it’s time to begin the second-half of ours.
We wanted a challenge and something fun, so we are starting an adventure of a lifetime. We’re calling it #60×60. Our plan is to travel to 60 countries by the time Kim turns 60 (that’s in 6 years by the way).
