|About these ratings|
One of many UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Mexico City region, Teotihuacán (teh-oh-tee-wa-can) contains some of the largest pre-Columbian pyramids in all of Mexico. The site contains many popular constructions, including the Palace of the Plumed Butterfly, which showcases various columns of winged creatures, and the awesome Pyramid of the Sun, which sits at the heart of the small city. The nearby museum, Museo de la Sitio, also holds many artifacts from the period.
While many travelers were amazed by the daunting monuments, some had questions about the available facilities. One traveler on TripAdvisor says that there is "little or no on-site info AND harassment by the local people selling trinkets, etc." Despite that, most visitors found themselves amazed by the sight.
Teotihuacán is about a one-hour drive from Mexico City. You can access the site by bus from the Autobus del Norte bus station, or you can book a driver for a larger fee. The park is open every day beginning at 8 a.m. Get there early to avoid crowds.
