Huge city!

We arrived in 10am which was great but if you can arrive at 9 it would be even better! No people and not too hot! Climb both of the pyramids if you can, it is not that bad and... read more

We arrived in 10am which was great but if you can arrive at 9 it would be even better! No people and not too hot! Climb both of the pyramids if you can, it is not that bad and definitly worth it! We do not think that a guide is a must since you have a lot of info on... More

When we first arrived we watched the flying men of Veracruz, who hang upside down from the top of a pole and spin round playing music while gradually descending. It's quite something to watch. The Teotihuacan complex is huge, there are lots of pyramids, you can climb most of them, but some are fenced off. The Temple of the Sun... More

Travelling to the pyramids i used Uber. I think it cost me about $40 round trip from la reforma area in mexico city. I visited this site on a Sunday because it was the only day i was able to. If possible, avoid attending on sundays at all costs. Sundays are free for mexican citizens. We arrived at around 2:30... More

We were on a 14 night tour of Mexico and this was the first major site of the tour. It is a very impressive large site dominated by the Pyramids of the Moon and the Sun with the Avenue of the Dead stretching between. We had an English speaking guide to help understand the various aspects. The journey from Mexico... More

The pyramid of the sun and the moon, the avenue of the dead and all of its unexplainable mysteries has made Teotihuacan the most mind blowing place I have ever visited. You can easily spend your whole day in this ancient paradise without even realizing it. I will recommend to go as early as possible because it can get really... More

Impressing archeological place. Hard to believe that such perfect geometrical angles were built centuries ago. Go up the big pyramid, it's not that hard watch up when stepping down though that's the risky part.

If you have a few days in Mexico City, you should definitely head out to visit Teotihuacan. Some suggest taking a bus or going with a tour (I wouldn't - not for me). Our hotel arranged for a local taxi driver they trust to drive us out, wait for us and then take us to lunch before heading back. Most... More

The entire walk is plagued by sellers and bargaining. But the place is well preserved as of now. The long walk and the long climbs are not for the weak.

Great experience! This year Teotihuacan started a new happening by opening the pyramids at night. You have to plan ahead and tickets sell out very fast. The tour starts at 7pm and you walk from Gate 2 to the Moon Pyramid, it's nicely lit, changing colors as you walk along the Calzada de los Muertos. You are given and iPod... More
