#Ruin, #Landmark, #Must See
Step back in time at Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan, one of the best preserved examples of Mesoamerican civilization in modern-day Mexico. 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.

  • The archaeological complex is a large and beautiful place, you can walk around to visit all the sites. It is recommended to go with a tour in case don't have own mobility already that is a bit far from the city. One thing I didn't like was the use of Orange as safety mesh in the same pyramid, which looks very bad, could opt for materials or less bright colors such as those used in the rest of the complex.

  • We went with friends to see the pyramids of Teotihuacan and the beautiful truth. You have to go with enough physical condition since you will have to climb many stairs, it is worthwhile to do so. I recommend it 100%

  • Very interesting place to visit, but it is highly recommended that you hire a guide in order to know the history of the place. The guide is not expensive considering what you will learn about this culture. I can't believe they made those monuments and sculptures without the resources we currently have. The Sun is hot!!! So, take your hat, hat, parasol, umbrella ... The ideal is to arrive as soon as possible. Close to the 10:00, the excursions start coming and becomes complicated take good pictures or have space to walk in the pyramids. There are many people selling their handicrafts. Negotiate well and buy so you can help them! I have nothing to complain about and we were very well received!

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.
