Amazing historical ruins and a great climb up the Pyramid of the Sun

Love these ruins and, even after several visits, never tire of them. The climb to the top is a bit sketchy but absolutely doable.

I wont fault my rating for this, but the Moon Pyramid is no longer accessible to the top. Too much action up there has caused it to deteriorate I guess I didnt look into it much. When I was little I got to go to the very top, but now you can only do so on the Sun, which is... More

We got here by local bus that stopped just outside the gates. There are many official guides working there (deployed at the gates and more freelancer typed inside; both of with have the official credentials hanging around their necks). We chose the latter and got the price down a little first, and even more when we took it in Spanish.... More

I have visited countless archeological sights around the world, but the pyramids of Teotihuacan are definitely one of my all time highlights. The sheer size is so impressive and the fact that you can climb them individually without booking an overpriced tour and at a reasonable entrance fee of only 70 MXN make this a highlight. We visited Teotihuacan on... More

Absolutely beautiful - holds its own against the archaeological sites in Egypt, Greece, and the rest of Central America. Go first thing in the morning in order to climb the pyramids during the cool of the day,, see the ruins in a nice light, and wander the Avenue of the Dead before the crowds get there. This is a solid... More

Living in Mexico, I have visited Teotihuacan a dozen or more times over the years, and have always come away highly impressed with the park itself, with the archeological work that continues there, and most of all, with the extraordinary cultural level achieved by the Teotihuacan Society. In its heyday, somewhere around the 3rd Century, it was one of the... More

This is truly an impressive site within a short drive from Mexico City. The builders were long gone before the Aztecs discovered it and decided it must have been built by gods. The walk down the avenue past the pyramid of the sun to the pyramid of the moon is quite amazing. Going with a guide might get you into... More

Massive place, be prepared to walk alot. We parked at the beginning of the place to see a the first pyramid, then walked over to the extremely tall Temple of the Sun. That was pretty exhausting. So, we got back in the car to drive over to the Temple of the Moon area. Smart move, keep your parking ticket. The... More

This is truly an important historical area. It may be worth the trouble to go to if you never have been to any of the numerous other similar sites in Mexico or Mesoamerica. However we found it troublesome to get to and return to Mexico City, crowded, dry, hot and dusty and frankly --nothing special. Having said that if you... More
