This is the town closest to Guachimontones. We took a bus to the Teuchitlan and a taxi to Guachimontones. This is a small and pretty town- the ruins here are the pyramids. Didn't spend too much time there since we stopped there only to see the circular pyramids. Very unique and highly recommend it.

Mexico is so old, so deep and so big that these great ruins only get 3 stars, but if you are visiting Guadalajara it is most definitely worth a day trip: morning visit to Guachimontones, and afternoon/evening visit to nearby Tequila. Not much is known about the ancient civilization that built these pyramids, but they selected a beautiful site with... More

We has a tour of the site with a young guide whose English was very good. In addition, there is a new museum at the end of the tour which does not overwhelm. Great reconstruction of the history of an ancient people.

Was very different than expected but a great place to explore and burn off a few calories as some uphill walking required. Local town is also great place to relax and no so far from Tequila

Along the highway 800m direction Guadalajara, follow the signs to Resturant Soky and enjoy an excelant meal for a very reasonable price while watching the birds on the lake.

I have visited many of the major ancient ruins throughout the world, but I found this site most fascinating. It was a peaceful society who dealt with their differences in a unique way - no one died. The site was well maintained. Our guide, Sergio, was well informed, educated, and spoke perfect English. The museum was top notch and offered... More

I loved seeing the round pyramids and learning about the inhabitants from a guide who loved his job. The site and the history is fascinating. It is a small area compared with many others but the museum is well done and it is worth a visit. What a lovely setting about the lake.

This site is not comparable to larger archeological sites like teotihuacan. However, it does have its charm, since the pyramids on the site are covered in very well mantained and mannecured grass, so you will see pyramids covered in a layer of grass - unique I would say. THe site is not huge so it will take less than one... More

............Most interesting ruins. A nice modern interpretive center. Although this is not Machu Picchu or Tulum, these ruins are unique and very fun to explore. There remains much investigation to be made here and for that reason they need financial support provided by visits. A nice change of pace from the distillery tours...........

The Ruins of Teuchitlan is the same as Guachimontones. They are known more here as Guachimontones, so I suggest you use that. Teuchitlan is the small village located nearby. LenoIrish.
