Teotihucan is amazing! the pyramids were great!!!!!! It really worth it! Take at least 2 hours, so you can be at the top of both without having to "run". The basilica is very beautifull, and there is 2 more churchs to visit at the same place.

Whether you are saying a prayer at the Basilica or climblng the temple of the Sun. Either place provides you a chance to get to know Mexico and it's beauty and wonder.

The Teotihuacan Pyramids did not disappoint. The massive structures were impressive, a much better attraction than that of the more famous Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza. On the otherhand, if you're Catholic, it's a must to drop by and say a prayer at the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I was impressed at how the new basilica was designed... More

Absolutely breath taking. The gardens around the church grounds were some of the most beautiful I had ever seen. We climbed the Sun Pyramid which was a little more exhausting than I had expected. It took a little while to get used to the elevation. There is a restaurant near buy that is in a cave. It is worth a... More

They pyramids are so much more impressive than those in Chichen Itza. GO EARLY IN THE MORNING. AVOID THE CROWDS. TAKE A JACKET. Plan to be there before 9, after like 10 your pictures will be infested with tourists. At the time we went, it was perfectly desolate. We had the beautiful pyramids mostly to ourselves.

Great exposure to other culture, while sharing the commonality of art. Share the experience with not only Mexican Nationals, but people from all over the world. Amazing perspective of the original Basilica, then the replacement 100 years later and then the 1970 AMAZING rendition.

Its a beautiful place to go. Its nice and safe. Ive been so many times. The best time for me to go and appreciate it, is around 2pm or 3pm. Theres not a lot of people, try avoiding going on sundays. Its divided into three sections. The top part, the original church where the Virgin of Guadalupe was spotted. The... More

I'm not sure why the Basilica compound is paired with Teotihuacan - I am assuming it's because they are often on the same bus tour but do yourself a favor, see them independently and avoid being rushed by a tour group. Regarding the Basilica itself, the new building is modern inside and out, which contrasts heavily with the beautiful old... More
