Strenuous hike with breathtaking scenery along the way. Most of the way up is stone stairs. When the clouds clear at the top, you can see the whole town and surrounding mountains. The temple itself is incredible, and you cam even climb up on it....More

It’s extremely crowded destination. We got there before noon and there already thousands of people heading to the top to the pyramid. Neighborhood shops sell local food, snacks, and alcohol. Get there early is better, it can be difficult to find parking, unless you are...More

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

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.
