This unique site is well worth a day trip out from Tequila or Guadalajara to see. Only recently discovered but also with am excellent interpretive centre it is a must see to learn about the civilization that uswd to be here.
These are not the pyramids you've seen in Mexico. The circular structures are so unique. There are a couple of game courts uncovered too. Work is on going to uncover more on the site. The museum is beautiful and so well done. I loved the...More
This is SO worth it! I really recomend! The pyramids are pretty recently found out about compared to some others of Mexico so they are still learning more about the people who built and lived around them but the guides were still very knowledgeable and...More
Located on top of a hill. Guachimontones is a fascinating place to visit. The view is awesome. You can see Teuchitlan town and a little lake (I believe it is a dam) right next to it Summer is the best season to visit if you...More
It is definitely worth a trip to see the circular pyramids. It is a fascinating side. But there were some problems with the tour. They were on time to pick us up, but the first stop was at the car shop to replace the tire...More
We went on a Charter Tour,tour and having a good local guide was certainly a bonus. The site is well cared for and they have an excellent museum with some very old artifacts. There are public restrooms and plenty of parking. There's no entrance fee,...More
We traveled about 40 minutes from Guadalajara. The museum and video were educational to give historical information about the mounds. We then went and wandered through the mound area. Very scenic and an inexpensive afternoon. Senior and student discounts available.
Unique archeological site. Only known “round” pyramids. Multiple structures covering several hectares. The visitor center is a modern facility with great educational assets, including a well done descriptive movie.The entire site is clean, well organized and cared for. Bring a camera and good walking shoes....More

Download the map previous to travel and fill your gas tank, gas stations are few and the data signal is poor, make sure to have MXN in cash debit and credit cards are not usable everywhere, wear confortable clothing cause the way up the hill is a bit challenging and make sure you have how to hidrate (water bottles are 2 Usd. DoNot drive after dark and dont stop for strangers in the road. At the hilton lobby there is plenty of information to do it yourself and to take a tour. Enjoy
We will be in Guadalajara in July. Are the Guachimontones Pyramids a good day trip? How does one get there and what can we expect? Is it a guided tour or will we be hiking?

I think it's well worth it, although maybe you should consider overnighting at the nearby Hacienda El Carmen (see reviews). You take a second class bus from Guadalajara and then it's an uphill hike of at least half an hour. The views are excellent, even though the site itself consists of little more than grass mounds. It would be easy enough to find a local cab from where the bus drops you if you don't fancy the walk there and back.
Guachimontones and Tequila (7 Replies)
Hi All - Do I need a tour guide if I want to go to Guachimontones and tequila tasting in one day? If so does anyone have any tour groups/guides you would recommend? Thanks!

Do some searching on this forum, seems not to long ago someone was talking about a tour out of Guadalajara that visited Guachimontones, Magdalena ( best opals in Mexico ) and Tequila....
affordable hotel in historic core? (5 Replies)
I'm just sorting out a three night trip to Guadalajara, and am curious about your opinions on affordable colonial hotels. Ideally, a pretty hotel with a breakfast option, situated in a location good for walking. I plan to visit the Guachimontones Pyramids, but aside from that, mostly want a low key wander through the city, to see art, local culture and food. Love to hear your opinions!

Since I don't know your budget, I'm not sure what's affordable to you, but these historic hotels get decent to good reviews. Hotel Frances (the oldest hotel in Guadalajara, dates from 1610) Hotel San Francisco (in front of a colonial church) Hotel Morales (gets the best reviews of the 3, also the most expensive)
