Obviously Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacán is worth a visit. We saved money by taking the public bus from the Autobuses del Norte metro station (88 pesos return) and splurged to hire a guide. If you will not be part of an organized tour I would recommend talking to a few guides at the gate (if they are Authorized they should... More

I have been to Chichen Itza but that does not mean all ruins are the same. The area here is huge and still largely unexcavated. The stories are unique. The sun pyramid is worth the hike if you are able. Take a guide - you are respecting/helping the local economy and you can learn more. However I think our large... More

This enormous site is 30 miles Northeast of the city and thought to be built about 100 BC by an unknown civilization. Both Pyramids of the Sun and Moon can be scaled to the top and provide an amazing view. I didn't attempt this because it was hot that day, the steps are uneven, there was lack of adequate handrails,... More

Entrance fee is only 10.00 dlls, but be ready to walk the valley of the death, so u will need water, confi shoes, sun screen lotion n a... More

In my opinion better than Chichen Itza, México is a country with great history and culture, is amazing what they have in their country, I love México!!

Having previously seen other heritage sites across Mexico, I decided to visit this site whilst in Mexico City, and I wasn’t disappointed. The sheer enormity of this location is very impressive. A lot of the Pyramids have been recreated, but nevertheless it does give a really good impression of how this place must have been when it was originally built.... More

This was such a wonderful place, complacent to Angor Vat, Machu Pichu, etc. it was a wonderful place, full of mystery and helped to shape my understanding of the ancient world. It was a great place to visit and only wish that I could have stayed for days on end. Tip: get there as early as you can- nothing like... More

This is a great day trip from Mexico City and should not be missed. Ironically, Cortez did miss it; he passed not too far away on his way to Mexico City (then Tenochtitlan) and didn't notice it. Stop and see the scale model to get the lay of the land and be sure to climb one of the pyramids if... More

My husband and I visited Mexico City for our 2nd anniversary. Exploring Teotihuacan was the highlight of our trip. We arranged a private tour/transportation with Jorge Mendoza (jorgemendozaturismo@live.com). He picked us up at our hotel in Mexico City and took us to the Basilica in route to Teotihuacan. We had visited Machu Picchu and Petra prior to Teotihuacan and were... More

Perhaps it's the couple of tequila shots beforehand, the steady increase of lactic acid in the leg muscles as we climb the steps, or perhaps the altitude (it;s about 7500ft above sea level) but moments after reaching the top of the Pyramid of the Sun you feel you have reached a very special place. Pairs of butterflies encircle each other,... More
