  • Beautiful site! Definitely worth the trip. Get there early and start with the Pyramid of the Sun. It gets crowded earlier. My 2.5 year old climbed it. It took us about 20 minutes.  more »
  • Beautiful monuments with lots of history. Climbing up these pyramids may be difficult as the steps are high and uneven!  more »
  • Best of the best! The highest 2 pyramids. Majestic! We cut it up. C is impressive!

  • 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
