First off, I want to mention that The Ruins of Teuchitlan are the same place as the "Guachimontones Pyramids" for which there are reviews for both here on tripadvisor. Secondly, the history of these pyramids and the cultures that were here starting more than 2,000 years is very interesting, and if you like history, archeology and somewhat adventurous half-day trips,...

My wife and I and my 80 year old mother visited here today. All pyramids that we have visited have had their really good points as did this one. This is the first pyramid that I said that is round. We hired a guide, English speaking and college educated in anthropology. Some days he staffs the museum on sight and... More

Not as big as we could imagine. No real tourist infrastructure which could be seen as a positive point of view. Although it is interesting, there is not information panels. I wish I could understand a bite better about the past.

Easy to walk around the museum, which is well done. There is a bit of a hike up a hill, but not difficult for most. Easy walking around the grounds and pyramids (which you can't climb, but you get up close). A nice outting! Small fee to enter. Free, easy parking. Seniors are free. Staff is friendly and helpful!

The pyramids themselves are worth seeing already, if you are interested in history and culture. Make sure to check the museum is open on the day you plan to go. You can opt for a guide there if you want, I think the price was 200 or 300 pesos. After seeing the pyramid site, my friends and I walked around... More

The archeological site of Guachimontones is probably the most important historic site in Jalisco. A city of circular pyramids, surrounded by a plaza and concentrically located structures, as well as two large ball courts, inhabited off and on, at several different times throughout history, beginning at about 300 BC. The site also has a new museum, with a large mural... More

Just a short trip from Guadalajara, we really enjoyed these very unique round ruins. The whole ambience of the area is beautiful, very tranquil and a spiritually uplifting experience ! The fine museum should be enjoyed either before or after seeing the ruins but it is a must view ! It really enhances the experience. We had a perfect guide... More

It took a little while to get there from Guadalajara driving a rental car. Not sure how one would travel by bus. And driving through the village of Teuchitlan made you wonder whether this would be worth it. But driving up to the site, paying the $30 peso entry fee per person, and being greeted by a guide offering his... More

Very interesting - we loved our guide and the interpretive centre was very informative. A bit of a long trek up to the ruins but worth it!

Not much to see here, but it is pretty cool to see a round pyramid. There were not guides available when we came, but a "local" explained some history. There is a new museum at the base of the entrance that opened in Spring 2012, but have not yet been there.
