Beautiful site with amazing frescoes and carved panels and the remains of several ball courts and ceremonial platforms (pyramids). The site has a very nice small museum with objects found here (more in the Anthropological Museum in Mexico City). Unlike Teotihuacan you have to use your imagination a bit more to see the site as it must have looked. Small... More

this is not one of the most famous sites nor the most spectacular but it worth a visit. First, its huge Atlanteans distinguish tula from other tourist sites. But what is really amazing, if you are sensitive to atmosphere it is this sense of calm and serenity that emanates from this place.

I'm usually very enthusiastic about arqueological sites but I'm hesitant to give this site the maximun grade, because the site open to public is relatively small and in fact there are only two buildings worth mentioning. Of course one of them is one of the most famous and worth seeing in the world because of the gigantic columns with the... More

While Teotihuacan is amazing in its size and grandeur, Tula is amazing in its uniqueness. If you're going to be in Mexico City you should try to visit both. A visit to Teotihuacan is easy; there are numerous tours and even the subway/metro system goes out that far. Tula has no tours (that I found) since it is farther out... More

This is a good site to see in addition to Aztec ruins. It has similarities to both Aztec ruins and those of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan. These can be climbed; the large figures are fascinating. There is a site museum. There are few explanations so a little research ahead of time or a guide is helpful.

I have never seen these giants in any of the archaeological sites that we visited during our 12 day tour that started in Cancun and ended in Mexico City, We arranged the tour to include a visit to Tepotzotlan (another must see) in the morning and Tula in the afternoon. We spent several hours visiting the site and after seeing... More

I had always wanted to see Mexican ruins. While this pyramid is not a large as the more famous ones such as the Temples of the Sun and the Moon, it was fascinating. We spend several hours there and at this pyramid, you can climb to the top of it, unlike some that are now closed to that. There was... More

We had a great time at this site it is a different ruin than the one Teotihuacán with many archaeological specialties I have not seen before. The paths throughout are easy walking but do remember that there still are a lot of stairs to climb.

Even if it is a small site compared to many others it has a unique charm due to the 4 towering statues that look like guards to the valley. You feel a sense of link with the past and of mystery.

Tula is an archeological site which is smaller than Teotihuacan and has its own distinct beauty. We paid 47 pesos which includes the site visit and museum. It was fascinating when I saw these 4 Toltec warriors. We used the subway/metro train and bus to reach the ruins. From our hotel which is near at Insurgentes subway Station then we... More
