  • Is it is a litmus test for your physical condition but the joy of reaching the top has no comparison. Visit a must if you're in the area

  • The massiveness of the site and this pyramid is breathtaking. Who would design such a thing? We underestimate the skills and talents of folks who lived in 500 BC. It must have taken hundreds of years ...  more »

  • It's worth to see if you are in the area. Climb on top, bring good, solid shoes and water. Don't be afraid of heights, steep stairs!
  • Make some time to visit here. Unlike some of the other historical sites around Mexico, you can actually climb to the top of these. Take some water if it's in the summer months.
  • A TREASURE! Wonderful historical site. It takes about 10 minutes to climb up to the top for a stunning view. Very well kept, unfortunately the museum was closed. I just wish the weren't any ambulant vendors around...
  • Magnificent, the whole power of the aztec/ mexica civilazation
  • Very cool looking pyramids. They're so much more awesome from up close. A real item for your bucket list
