Well preserved pyramids just outside Mexico City

I enjoyed my trip to visit the ruins of Teotihuacan. Climbing the pyramids was a nice treat since many ruins are off limits to climb in other countries. The complex is large and well laid out, a truly amazing feat considering how old it is. Getting there from Mexico City was easy and took about an hour. I rode a... More

We got here late in the day and managed to move through quickly and climb both the sun and moon pyramids in only 90 minutes. While we thoroughly enjoyed our time here, I'd recommend spending much more although I don't think a guide is necessary. We didn't have time for the museums so can't review those unfortunately. And on your... More

I was just here last week. I walked all over the entire park in about 4 hours. I also ate at the restaurant on site. I did some browsing through the souvenir shops but decided to wait before purchasing anything due to tourist trap prices. There are cheaper markets to buy souvenirs in Mexico City. I drove a rental car... More

After nearly about 1 hour travel by car, depends of the traffic in Mexico City, you will arrive to Teotihuacan. This city exists long before the Aztecs. By their arriving they found the ruins of Teotihuacan like today. The main axis is named in Nahuatl miccaotli which means street of the dead.The northern end built the moon pyramid, beside lies...

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.
