About an hour's drive from central Mexico City and very definitely worth the journey. Usually I would take public transport when I travel, but I had read warnings about security on the local buses, so I opted for the tour offered by my hotel (430 pesos per person including entry). I was quoted 1,000 pesos for a taxi for the return journey. The pyramids were spectacular and in remarkably good repair. Don't miss the beautiful murals in the various palaces around the site (one of them is outside Gate 4).
