Wanna get out of the city for a while? Then enjoy a day in silence at Guachimontones!!! -> how to get there by bus from GDL <- Of course my hostel recommended me to take this expensive tour with some organization. As I am on a budget I decided to go by myself. I read all previous trip advisor articles.... More

If you like archeological sites, do visit this UNESCO heritage, as the circular pyramids are unique in their kind. The road to the Guachimontones via Tlajomulco de Zuñiga will give you an idea of the typical Mexican landscape, with fields of agave and sugar cane. A visit to Guachimontones is best combined with a trip to the famous town of... More

Having lived in Guadalajara for almost two decades, we had never visited these pyramids. We have seen many of Mexico's spectacular pyramids. These are not as grand, but their circular shape makes them unique among the ones we have seen. The grounds were well maintained, and the vistas spectacular. From the parking lot to the ruins is a steep hike.... More

I was looking to take pictures of something different. So when i arrived in Guadalajara, i started searching and immediately found the trip advisor post of someone that had already been and told exactly how to get there via bus. However....their info mat be a bit dated. For example...the round trip bus fare isn't 98 or even 100 pesos. It... More

The site is lovely as is the museum. It is small and unlike the large ones in Yucatan, but it is worth the visit as it is unique.

Ever hear of round pyramids? While researching things to do I found this place. I was not sure of what to expect, but it far out pasted my expectations. This is a TRUE GEM and if you are into history or archaeology you would be truly sorry if you missed this. There is so much here and the main exhibition... More

I liked the history, loved walking trough the piramids, liked the activities they have at the museum, the view of the green hills, the clean air, the dam, the food near the dam, there is no solid food near the piramids and you have to drive a little towards the dam but the food there is good, clean and not...

Even on a Sunday, the site was pretty quiet and not crowded. You can completely immerse yourself into the peaceful environment yet feel the powerful history from the pyramid. The landscape in distance is also spectacular: lake, Tuechitlan town, tequila fields and the volcano. Highly highly recommended.

What a privilege it was to visit the Guachimontones Pyramids! We were a group of six people from young to older adults and all agreed that the experience was so enriching. From the moment you arrive, the stones on the pathway tell the story of the area's flora and fauna. The building which houses the educational displays is open and... More

I really loved this place! The pyramids were absolutely amazing and the view from the top of the hill was so amazing... you see the town of Teuchitlan and the reservoir. Really loved the history as well as the museum - the museum has the huge painting which I absolutely loved. Definitely worth a visit! The only downside is that... More
