The enormous complex was, in its heyday, a city of more than 125,000 people, making it one of the largest hubs on the planet during its era. Pay attention to the deliberate, measured way in which the city was planned, with importance placed on the location of specific temples and pyramids. Take a guide with you to fully appreciate the city's history. Also beware of aggressive souvenir vendors at the entrance to the complex.

    A magical place! The entire complex is a wonderful sample of the Teotihuacan culture and the way it is preserved, allow to appreciate in detail each construction. The Guide, hat, sunscreen and moisturizer is essential. Take at least 2 hours visit complete and - obvious - including the ascent to the top of the pyramid of the Sun. There are many street vendor and the prices are not good; If there is interest in purchasing, you should haggle much to achieve an acceptable cost.

    Huge archaeological complex with lots of ruins of interest. Include the pyramid of the Sun and the pyramid of the moon. The first very crowded, so it is advisable to choose a less busy moment, preferably early in the morning. It is necessary to protect themselves from the Sun with a hat and sunscreen. Great and essential

    This was an amazing place to visit. We did a self guided tour of the pyramids and ancient ruins. Climbing the steps to the top of the Sun Pyramid was my favorite. The view was astounding.  more »

Where to stay in San Juan Teotihuacan

With many visitors opting to visit the nearby historical site of Teotihuacan on a day-trip from Mexico City, San Juan Teotihuacan itself doesn't offer too much in the way of accommodations. Your best bet is to look for a mid-range hotel, homestay, or "posada" around the city center, with Calle Canteroco offering a few options. You can also find some alternatives just south of the historic site itself, in San Sebastian Xolalpa.
