This trip is a must if you're spending time in the city or state of Mexico. Come early to try and avoid long lines. Allow a full day or the majority of it, to enjoy the ruins. The Aztecs considered Tenochtitlan the center of the universe. It's actually dead center of the Americas.

This is great structure with a number of pyramids, with the largest the Pyramid of the Sun. It is somewhat daunting to climb all the stone steps to get to the top but worth it if you are able to make the climb. I would not recommend it for someone with a heart condition, or problems with knees. There are... More

Visiting the temples in Teotichuacan can be an impressive experience. I suggest to pay the local guide. They are not expensive if you consider that they are trained, educated individuals that will inform you and take you to spots you may miss if you weren't with them. I have been there several times and I have always hired a local... More

We went on a weekday in mid January. We left our hotel at 6 am. We took a metro to Autobuses del Norte. We paid 100 pesos for a return ticket. The ticket officer, the bus-station officer, and the bus driver were friendly and helpful. The ticket officer could speak English well. It took about 1 hour from Mexico City... More

Our visit to Mexico City was with a strict mindset of spending as much time with the locals, and travel 'close to the ground'. This means, we did not want to be typical tourists. We chose to travel using the metro, and we took a bus to visit the pyramids at Teotihuacan. It was nice to be the only tourists... More

The pyramids are impressive, but the crowds are kind of overwhelming. I was there for 2 hours, and that was plenty for me. Just too many people and folks hawking their wares. I recommend going to either side of the main drag, even behind the pyramids, to get beyond the huddled masses. I found a little path behind the pyramids... More

Nice ruins, good to visit if one stays in or near Mexico City. One can take a bus for 46 pesos per person from the bus terminal del norte in Mexico City. There are 5 entrences. The pyramids close at 5pm so make sure that you climb onto them in time.

Teotihuacan is the "City of the Gods" Many people think that these pyramids were buit by the Aztecs. However, they were not. When the Aztecs arrived to the valley in Tenochtitlan (downtown Mexico City) the pyramids were already built. The Aztecs saw the pyramids the way we see them now. This attraction is a must see. However, these days it... More

This vast archeological complex was better than expected. The site is huge and the pyramids are very impressive. We were able to climb the Pyramid of the Sun before the queue became super long. Advise you go in the morning before the heat sets in as well. The view from the top of the pyramid is well worth the climb.
