Teotihuacan was the first major Mayan pyramid site that I visited in Central America. I went at the start of July and I chose to go on my own without a tour or a guide, but that's just my preference. I'm not generally big on tours. I got up early and caught an early bus from Mexico City to Teotihuacan.... More

We watched a bunch of videos in advance about this place. In the videos the place looked packed so we weren't sure what to expect on a Wednesday visit. The place was empty. Ever guide/expert you talk to has a different number of steps for each pyramid. No idea who is right but pyramid of the sun you can hike... More

Wow!! What an experience we had. The trip to the pyramids was on the top of our list. We left the city around 9a and it took us 1 hour to arrive. We hired a guide to explain the history and she walked with us, the tour took approx 1 1/2 hour, after we were free to wonder on our... More

Amazing historical site just a few hours drive from mexico city. Better than any museum, and even if you're not into cultural tours, this one is definitely worth seeing.

A very busy place but we'll worth the visit. It does get quite hot during the day from midday onwards. Take plenty of water and a hat. The earlier you get their the less the crowds but you can relax and get some lovely photos and imagine what it must have been like all those years ago.

Book an early morning tour through Viator. Their website said there was a 20% discount on the Friday morning tour. However, we did not receive the discount. This seems like false advertising to me. They also dump you at a gift shop afterwards and expect you to eat lunch there. You aren't forced to eat but there is nothing to... More

Teotihuacan is the ancient city built around 150 BC. It's about 30 miles outside of Mexico City. Is layed out in a geometric fashion with the axis aligning to the route of the sun on the vernal equinox. I have phobia of heights ... yet, swallowed my fear and climbed the Pyramid of the Sun. It's the most impressive and... More

This was on my must-see list on our trip to Mexico City in July. I'd read a bit about this site a few years ago and was really intrigued by it, but since Mexico City wasn't really high on my travel list, I didn't think I'd get around to seeing it. Some friends and family wanted to go on a... More
