I visited Tepoztlán & the pyramid Tepozteco on a day trip from Mexico with two friends in early March. If you are getting a taxi to the bus station from your Mexico City hotel make sure you are very clear about which bus station you need to go to. Our concierge arranged our taxi & they took us to the... More

As all the other reviews say, it's very challenging steep climb for about 45min to 1 1/2 hour depends on your fitness level. It's more like a natural stair master than hiking. You should bring a bottle of water and start hiking early at 9am when they open. There is $43 fee to see temple. the temple opens at 11.... More

It's a good idea to start early to beat the heat. We didn't realize that the pyramid opened at 9 so we ended up waiting at the top, but we ran into quite a few locals out for their morning exercise. Everyone was happy to greet us and one man walked the second half with us. He was glad to... More

We climbed up to Tepozteco this morning and are currently sitting having a few drinks. Beverages are very necessary after returning from the site. It's up to an hour hike pretty much straight uphill depending on how many stops you take. Well worth the hike though as the views are spectacular back down towards the town and Cuernavaca in the...

Tepozteco is always the highlight of my trip to Tepoztlan! It is quite a hike to the top but somehow I always come back down feeling energized. Tepoztlan is truly a magical pueblo!

On Sundays the attraction is free but pretty crowded. I recommend comfortable... More

Tough climb! Still worth it. The view is marvelous The pyramid is not too large and you need some dexterity in hiking The town and valley view is worth the effort

Up, up, up. Wow! The view from the top is incredible. But be sure you have good walking shoes. It's steep and long!

This is the pyramid atop the Sierra de Tepoztlán in Tepoztlán, Morelos. The start of the hike is only about 6 blocks north of the zocalo. Pro tip - be prepared! Dress as if you are taking a real hike, because you will be. Wear good shoes like hiking boots or sneakers. Bring plenty of water. Wear clothing you can... More
