I made a day trip to Mexico City just to visit the shrine. I had never been there and wasn't sure how to get there and back from the airport as I only had about 3 hours to see it all. What I would recommend is putting your back pack/carry on in a locker on the ground floor. Costs about... More

Incredible...my vision of what it should be and more! The site is clean, vendors are mildly irritating, pyramids are stupendous. Totally loved the museum....the murals displayed there are a "must see"

Very interesting to see both the old & new Basilicas. We were there in early Dec, near the fest day of Lady of Guadalupe, so we had the extra treat of seeing indiginous peoples from Chiapas region wearing traditional attire in ceremonial dance. This only happens once a year according to our guide Phillipe. The ride to Teotihuacan is about... More

just beatiful places, dont miss these 2 places, take a whole day to visit both places. also be careful on the shops near Teotihuacan, a lot more expensive than the Mercado de Artesanias in the DF. if you can take a private tour so you can have more time for yourself.

Both the Basillica and Teotihuacan were quite large but worth the effort to visit. We went with a small tour (8 people) and saw both the same day.

Unfortunately many tours bundle these sites together. They could not be more different. Teotihuacan is the must-see site, a spectacular experience similar to visiting Pompeii. As you wander the avenue and the remnants of buildings, it is hard not to be awed by the artistry and skill of the ancient world. Anyone who believes Europeans brought some advanced civilization to... More

I was impressed about the amount of people in Sunday afternoon there, people participating to holy Masses. The cape of the poor Juan Diego was an interesting detail.

I was very surprised to find out that there are multiple churches on the site. The old basilica is gorgeous! The new basilica is kind of strange, but still nice. In order to see the Virgin up close, you need to enter the new cathedral, walk toward the back along the lefthand side, and take the moving walkway. We also... More

Although this site is outside Mexico City it is easily accessible by public transport. You take the #5 Metro line to the North Terminal (Autobuses del norte) where you look to the left for signs that say 'Pyramides' Cost $88 pesos return (under $10). Busses leave every 20 minutes or so and drop you right at the entrance of the... More
