It is a high pyramid but not that special for us. It is almost completly restord and nothing is original.. no special painting. We actually liked the view from pyramid of the moon more.

Here some practical tips: You can take a bus from Gare Norte, it is some mex55 and take approximately an hour. If you are two or more you might consider taking an Uber.... More

Get there early and head straight to the pyramid of the sun. You'll beat the heat and the crowds and by crowds I mean having to slowly lumber up the pyramid in line. If you get there early before the buses show up, you can work your way up comfortably and stop when you feel like stopping without worrying about... More

I saw a woman going up in tight pants, a shirt with the words "New York" spelled out in glitter, and open-toe high heel wedges, so the climb really can't be that bad. It helps to have good company, because you'll likely be standing in a line depending on when you visit. Bring some bottled water, sunglasses and enjoy the... More

It is an experience of a life time. The Temple of sun or Pyramid del sol and luna the moon. It takes a good decent pair of legs and level head to climb all the way. About 60 meter plus high.

Just an hour away from Mexico City (40 min if the driver is in a hurry), very easy to reach by uber, taxi, bus or with a tour guide, the whole site of San Juan Teotihuacan will give you a hint of the advanced culture that inhabited this town more than 1,800 years ago. At its highest pick the city... More

A must do if you are able. The pyramid of the moon and sun dominate the avenue, climbing to the top gives fabulous views and perspective to the enormity of the site.

After a one and a half hour we finally arrived at the pyramides. There are two and both are impressive. imagining how old they are we climbed all the steps up to the top. The view was amazing, so silent and wide. For me this pyramides are more impressive than Chichén Itzá, the famous pyramid of Maya. In particular because... More

This is a magnificent piece of history and its amazing to be able to climb the pyramid and see history in the flesh without barriers etc, The site is big and the climb to the top of the pyramid is tough so make sure to wear good walking shoes. Its so worth it to get to the top and see... More

The complex is so close to DF that it only takes an hour to get there. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go as meso-american cultures are not most interesting to me. I was blown away by the place. These ancient and largely unknown people accomplished things that would be impossible to us without our modern machines. Great experience.... More
