We climbed up to the pyramid in the afternoon with two children aged 4 and 8 (almost). It was far more challenging that we had planned for, even though the guidebook had warned us. It was a fantastic adventure, however; the climb was beautiful, although there were some moments when I was worried about the kids slipping (don't do this climb in the rain). The view from the pyramid at the top was fantastic. The pyramid itself is rather small, but if you use your imagination, you can make up great stories for the kids. There were many people climbing and descending; it was kind of a festive atmosphere. Warning: bring a jacket, because it can get chilly at the top, and make sure you have enough water and snacks for the kids. It's at least an hour to the top, and another hour down; can be a lot more if your children are not feeling up for it.
The town itself is glorious; utterly charming, filled with shops, stands, food, arts and crafts, and tourists from all over Mexico (very few foreigners when we were there).
