During both of my group study abroad trips to central Mexico, we have made it a top priority to visit the pyramids and ruins of this once-great city. Whether you climb the Pyramid of the Sun, or its counterpart - the Pyramid of the Moon, or simply look at them from afar while walking along the vast Avenue of the... More

We booked a full day tour with Monopolis Tours through our Hotel Geneve concierge. The tour was reasonably priced, though they do add 10% if you want to pay by credit card. Stopped at El Quetzel TA. prior to entering Teotihuacan. Lady showed us their cactus which provides up to two liters liquid in morning and again in afternoon. Also... More

We did a day trip and it was very easy to do and definitely worth it. We did it on our own, not with a tour group. It`s very easy on your own and you can get a guide when you get there if you want that, though we didn't bother. We took the bus (about 1 hour) from Terminal... More

Here are the well preserved ruins of the largest city in Pre-Columbian Americas. Don't miss the opportunity to book a tour to this site. This is an all day deal. Have good walking shoes and be adequately attired for the weather. Your guide will explain what you're seeing, and if not, buy a book. Bring a bottle of water. The... More

They are deffinately a must see, but I would really recommand you to go as early as possible, because it's packed with tourists and you can't really feel the Mystics of the ancient place because of that. You can easily catch a bus to the 'Del Norte' station for 4 peso's and from there you can buy a single (50)... More

This is a major and significant archaeological site and is a key visit to understand the meso-american culture in pre-Hispanic Mexico. I strongly recommend going early as it can get very busy and hot. Wear sunscreen (Being a White Cat I am rather pale and got badly burnt!). Note that on Sunday's it is free to Mexicans and so very...

This is the premiere archaeological site in the Western Hemisphere so it should not be missed. The climb up the steps on any of the platforms, but especially up the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, is very steep and can be dangerous. Try to use the available hand rails and chains, but if you have health concerns just admire... More

It is a bit of a drive out of Mexico City where we were staying, but with a good guide, i was a fascinating visit. The excavations are generally quite well done, and there are actual ancient stuccoes with original colors. If you are not up to the steep climb up (and herder - down the stairs) avoid the hassle,...

We debated whether to go with our 2.5 year old but I'm so glad we did! I don't know how much longer we'll be allowed to climb these pyramids. We got there really early (the first ones there) and started at the Pyramid of the Sun. It's a bit of a hike but it only takes 15-20 minutes (unless you... More
