I stayed at Tepozteco in January for a wedding. Hotel room was amazing. Views were great. Staff friendly and I felt safe.

Going up to the top of the Tepozteco is a must, once you are there with the amazing view, all the effort of going up is worth it. There are some important things to be prepared before going up, it is not a easy journey,...More

45 minutes of tough hiking bring you to this pyramid which, despite the beautiful view, doesnt really offer what you were expecting

The ruins themselves are not really interesting, but it is a nice hike to get there. Bring water and be ready! You will be able to see some wild life and humans feeding them despite the sign telling you not to.

At the base of the trail up to the pyramid there was a restaurant which looked like it had lovely views. If I'd had more time before catching my bus back to Mexico City I would have tried there.
