Guadalupe, the second most visited Roman Catholic pilgrimage site and of high symbolic significance to Mexicans. It is an important part of their identity as the chosen people of Mary, and host of ecclesial structures here reflects that. Interestingly all the earlier churches are settling into the unstable ground of the old lake bed of Texcoco. Teotihucan on the other... More

I booked a trip directly with my hotel for a day visit to both of these outstanding sights for 500 Mexican dollars -- excluding lunch. Although very touristy it was well worth it!! And was a highly memorable day out. Further, the travel books make a big thing of being mobbed by sellers at these sights. However, my experience was... More

Miraculous to visit the site of God's saviors mother on earth. Not good though becuase too many sales and PERIGUENIOS (street vendors) trying to pick your pocket. I used WAYAK and they did nothing about the problem.

A very spiritual place, even if you are not a catholic. This place is rich in history and you can see the "peregrinaciones" in the month of December as people make the trip to pay for a favor from the Lady of Guadalupe

We took the bus tour to these sights. It seems that all of the tour companies pretty much have the same itinerary. We started at Tlatelolco, the plaza of three cultures and then visited the Basilica. Even if you are not Catholic, one can appreciate the importance and sacredness of the Lady of Guadalupe to a nation that is predominantly... More

A trip to Teotihuacan on outskirts of Capitol is a must see. The Avenue of the Dead is lined with impressive pyramids and history that predate the arrival of the Azteca in the Valley Of Mexico. Left behind by Totecs, to whom the Aztecs claimed a shared ancestry to legitimize their rule...

Guadalupe and Teotihuacán are two different attractions, totally unrelated, many miles apart. I can't understand why TA lumps them together. If they have anything in common at all, it's that they are splendid, both, and give a thrilling look at Mexico's history. But: Hawkers at Teotihuacán are the most persistent and obnoxious I have seen. But: If you want to... More

How do you review a Basilica? I mean, it's a religious must but it is also a beautiful thing for tourists to visit. Amazing to learn the faith and the traditions of the Mexican people towards the Virgen de Guadalupe. It is free to get in but you must bring some pesos if you want to use the restroom. Its... More

If you are visiting Mexico City the Teotihuacan pyramids are a must see. It is an amazing experience. The Basilica Lady of Guadalupe is also an interesting site to visit.

located in the Valley of Mexico, 30 miles (48 km) northeast of modern-day Mexico City, known today as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramids, Teotihuacan is also anthropologically significant for its complex, multi-family residential compounds, the Avenue of the Dead, and the small portion of its... More
