I went to this site twice, once on a private tour (taxi -$100US) with my husband and then a few weeks later with my daughter on an early morning group tour. If there are between 2-4 of you, negotiate with a taxi driver, better value and won't include the visit to the mates souvenir shop! The pyramids are amazing, there... More

great views from this pyramid. There are lines. I went on a holiday weekend and because there were so many people, it was an easier hike up since we had to wait at each level in line. Bring sunblock! Hydrate! We saw someone faint.

All I can say is that if you get the opportunity go and check out these amazing structures. They are very well preserved and worth the trek to the top.

We climbed the pyramid all the way to the top. It was hard and the steps are very high sometimes. But when you finally get to the top, you are proud of yourself and the view is fantastic. The earlier you get there - the better.

The view from top of the pyramid is absolutely stunning. It's really worth the long climb up there. The pyramid itself is quite impressive also.

I just visited both Teotihuacan pyramids (sun and moon) and it was a very magnificent experience. At first the weather was a bit cold but good as the day went by it got hot and sunblock, shades and a hat was needed. We went with a private tour guide that took us from the hotel to the pyramids and was... More

THE OBVIOUS: Get there early to avoid crowds. We got on the site at 9:30, and did not wait at all to go up the Sun pyramid at around 10:00. At noon time, the lineup wrapped around to the BACK of the pyramid, a wait of over 1.5 hours in the hot sun. Bring water (20pesos for 1.5 liters at... More

A place full of energy. The whole structure is pretty impressive for the time it was built. You must go up on the pyramid and feel the energy of the earth there.. and of course a great view of the whole campus.

Be prepared to deal with people selling you things. Wear a hat and bring an umbrella. Carry some toilet paper. The water wasn't turned on at one bathroom stop and my daughter was ill. Luckily I had tissues with me. The vendors on the outside were quite nice and helped us locate a change of clothing for my 9 year... More
