The Ajusco Labyrinth (Spanish: el Laberinto del Ajusco) is a European-style labyrinth made out of shrubs over 2 m (6.6 ft) high. The maze is almost an exact replica of the labyrinth located in Hever Castle, Kent, UK (which once belonged to Anne Boleyn) except that this one was built to be even bigger. Right next to the maze there is a charming Tudor type manor (which you can also visit) and together, both attractions seem as if they were extracted straight from a fairy tale.
The labyrinth is located near the mountains, right next to the Cumbres del Ajusco National Park and the Ajusco volcano.
It takes approximately 20-30 minutes to find your way out of the maze. The property has an area for picnics, camping, bonfires and barbecues.

We had a lot of fun visiting the Ajusco maze, which is not super big but for my 8 y.o. kids it was sufficient to get a sense of adventure. They enjoyed taking turns in leading, picking their own way through and playing hide-and-seek. We entered the labyrinth twice breaking it with a quick snack, which you can purchase at the manor (you can choose between a simple quesadilla, chilaquiles or enchilada). We also visited the public part of the manor which features an eclectic collection of furniture, ceramics and animal trophies. It's not particularly interesting, but from there, you have a great view of the maze and the surroundings. Located very close to the national park and surrounded by the pine trees, the labyrinth provides a nice nature escape from the busy Mexico City. My children also enjoyed interaction with the animals living at the property such as chickens, roosters, turkeys and some cute cats.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.
1. The owner of the place told us you can visit the maze at any time and any day. He said it's open 24/7. 2. If you don't want to eat food provided by the manor you can bring your own picnic or even BBQ your food on the spot. 3. There are bathrooms at the property but they don't seem to have a toilet paper. Something to keep in mind.
