Visiting the ruins was a great experience. It is hard to believe that these are only an hour from Mexico City. The bus from the city is easy and fast.

Teotihuacan was the first ever pyramid that I've visited. It was amazing and you must come here if you're at Mexico city. Put on sunscreen as the sun is very strong but windy. How to get there by yourself?(from mexico city) take a metro to autobuses del norte, then go to the left side of the terminal which sells ticket... More

We were lucky / unlucky enough to have an olympic activity the day we visited. That added to the midweek bustle but also surrounded our visit with hundreds of colourful clad dancers ... as well as all the 'suits'. Do take a hat, and some water, but other than that this is a wonderful, fantastic, magnificent place to visit ...... More

Okay. You're in Mexico City. If you've never been to the pyramids (Sun and Moon), you must see this. It predates the Aztecs, having been built almost 2400 years ago. You can drive up (5 different parking lots). You can climb both pyramids (this is no longer allowed at Chichen Itza). You can take an early morning hot air balloon... More

Update of costs of visiting Teotihuacan per person. Take own water and food as there is little to choose from inside the site. 1. Metro ticket 5 pesos one way to Autobuses de Norte. From Centro Historica 20mins approx. 2. Auto Bus Teotihuacan 84 pesos open return ticket. Situated 2nd to last booth left hand side on entry to the... More

The site is absolutely fantastic. The two main pyramids (Sun and Moon), the avenue of the death, the citadel, all so neatly placed it's difficult to believe it has been built more than 2,000 years ago. Being at the top of the pyramid of Sun (after a fierce climbing!) and contemplating the surroundings is a must.

I don't know what I was expecting before I got here but I was blown away at the sheer size of the site. it is still being excavated and more and more is being found there. Climbing the pyramids was a struggle but very fun. There are plenty of locals surrounding the area with stalls selling food, souvenirs and drink.... More

I visited this mysterious site on a Viator trip with an archeologist. It was only $42 USD. We arrived fairly early in the morning, which means you beat the crowds, especially on a weekend. The archeologist was very knowledgeable and we took the time needed to visit the three main pyramids as well as the ruins of a private house... More

The city of Teotihuacan ("teh-oh-tee-wa-KHAN") is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. I visited this unique site in 2013. I strongly recommend visiting this site to those who find a chance to come to Mexico City. You can take a tour guide or you can negotiate with a van driver that... More
