I brought my two boys (8 & 10) down just to see the pyramids at Teotihiacan. It did not disappoint. We couldn't believe that these even exist. Strange how little they are talked about in the U.S. Mayan pyramids seem to get more press and maybe more visitors since they're close to Caribbean resorts but these are MUCH bigger although... More

Much of the detail has been worn away with time, but one can still why the Pyramids were an iconic part of the culture. The first Pyramid took about an hr from the end of line to make it to the top. There is one section that is steep with short steps. Wear a wide brim hat and something to... More

You can easily visit Teotihuacan from Mexico city without agency. So from historical center of Mexico city go with trolley bus to Northern bus terminal and just find a bus wich goes to Teotihuacan. In about 45 minutes you're there. Where the sun creme and also take lots of water and a hat. Enjoy climbing on the pyramids of Moon... More

This is one of the most fascinating emplacements of Mexico a life change experience for you. Usher yourself through this Centennial Emplacement with the Toltec's teachings in mind. These teaching state that life is a dream of heaven and earth... A dream filled with abundance, peace, happiness, grace and love. Toltec word in Nahuatl means: Artist. Aren't we all artists... More

... if you go without a good professional and knowledgeable guide Teotihuacan risks feeling like a bunch of stones (as a local colleague called it). Frankly, I was reminded of Pompeii, with an initial sense of awe (although I do not understand some reviews around describing Teotihuacan as a wonder of the world...) quickly followed by the realisation you're looking...

If you have time in Mexico City and do not visit Teotihuacan your life will be the worse for it. I visited Teotihuacan and as I was walking through it was literally praising God. I realized that if "primitive" man can create a place so magnificent and grand how much greater will the New Jerusalem be in Heaven! If man... More

Wonderful site, awe-inspiring and fascinating. A guide will help you see the little details which make it more comprehensible. Climb the 3 pyramids and walk through the ruins of the houses as well as along the impressive Avenue of the Dead. Be prepared for quite a long walk and some very steep steps! It is worth visiting the anthropological museum... More

This was my favourite place to visit in Mexico City, despite going on a sunday when its free for the locals and its at its busiest, if you go to Mexico City then you have to visit this place. Climbing the pyramids was amazing and seeing the views from the top were amazing.

The site itself is outstanding, and best enjoyed by guided tour. Not much direction or information provided for anything self-guided. You can beat the crowds (and the sun) by arriving early in the morning. Bring water and sunscreen, and be prepared for a lot of walking. The terrain is uneven and pyramid steps very steep...challenging for anyone with mobility issues.... More

I was really impressed with the ruins here! You can do lots of climbing and sightseeing if that's your thing. Make sure you take a hat and some sunscreen because the ruins are located in a very arid, open area with no shade whatsoever. Be warned that these ruins are highly restored which may or may not be your thing.... More
