Climbing the pyramid is a bit hard, remember that the problem will be getting down, as the steps are difficult for some people, and be careful to take water with you, the view is amazing of this huge site, a worthwhile walk up the top of the Pyramid

Wonderful experience.Though it was very crowded because of sunday, huge queue but still we could manage to go till a certain level,cant go till the top because of queue.If you want to travel plan little early around 10-11 A>M it will be good.Also mexico city traffic is very poor so it will take time when you return.

It's an hour outside of the city. Definitely go with a guided tour. Amazing history and incredibly interesting. We went on a Sunday and it was packed! Sights like this one are free to Mexicans on Sunday's so everyone takes advantage. There was a long line to go up the sun pyramid but it moved rather quickly. I would suggest... More

You MUST go to this site if you are planning on spending a few days in Mexico city. The history here is beyond belief. Very , very interesting. Not for people that have a hard time walking. We hired a car for the day. I think we paid him $2000 pecos -- there are buses that go there also. Don't... More

These people built huge structures with little more than lots of workers. We were there with large crowds, but the only line was going up to the top of the pyramid of the Sun and the wait (not bad) gave us a chance to enjoy the view and swap stories with other visitors.

Not for persons with fear of heights, but for others memorable experience. The view helps to understand urban planning of Teotihuacan.

Can you believe there is a ruin only an hour by public bus from Mexico City that is larger than Chichen Itza? Yes, really. Go and visit with your friends or family. Bring a bottle of water, hire a tour guide there, and learn about an incredible ancient city.

The national park is just amazing and the pyramid of the sun it's just unbelievable!! Worth noticing that climbing to the top of the pyramid demands being in good physical conditions!

This was a nice little outing for us. My boys were able to make it up with no problem, ages 3,5,15 at the time. 360 degree view. It would have been nice if there were tour guides just to know a little bit more.

The 248 steps up are broken up into 5 stages which make it easier to scale for those unfamiliar with climbing stairs or hills. The views are lovely and the massive size is remarkable. It's the largest pyramid worldwide that allows the public to scale it.
