How many places have their own local god? How many places have a center of the essential energy of the town. Tepozteco is the name of the deity in whose honor this pyramid was built, Tepoztlan is his Land, this is his village. The local residents still venerate this deity with several festivals each year...one where the town meets at... More

It's a tough hike, not very long but you go up all the time. But believe me, it's well worth if you take your time and enjoy it - the views from the top are great! The pyramid is OK - not the best you will find in Mexico- but if you add the location then it turns into something... More

Better to climb first thing in the morning, less crowds and the light is wonderful. The gates at the top open at 10AM.

Great history and food. Lots of shopping, pottery, clothes, etc. The people were friendly and helpful. I don't speak Spanish so shopping was a challenge.

I have been to these ruins several times while in Mexico City ... it is not too far from Mexico City and the nice little cheap hotels are nice in the town. Tepoztlán can be reached by bus from the Central de Camiones del Sur (the southern bus station outside of the Tasqueña Metro stop) in about an hour or... More

I enjoyed the hike to Tepozteco so much. The surrounding nature is amazing and so is the view on top. The hike is about 1 - 1.5 hours, but we had good weather which made it quite easy. Strongly recommended.

The temple which resembles the top part of a pyramid is built on top... More

The hike to the top of Tepozteco was somewhat challenging but well worth it! We started our climb fairly early- by 7am we were on our way up the mountain- and we were rewarded by reasonable empty trails and a pretty clear view from the top. The pyramid itself is quite small but the experience of the climb made it... More
