Such an amazing place to visit. A great day trip while visiting Mexico City, as it's such a rich part of Mexican history and is great for all ages. The pyramids will blow you away, so remarkable and giving off a feeling of rich culture and history. I was a child when I visited and it was unforgettable. It felt so amazing to be at a grand place where my ancestors lived and finally walk on the same steps as they did. The pyramids vary in size and shapes, if you're up for a challenge, try walking up the pyramid of the sun. I was lively and active but could not make it up when I was 9 years old.. maybe lazy? Anyway, the steps feel like they go on forever. Take a moment to stop and breathe it all in. I remember taking a look around me and finally it soaked in what a great experience I was having. Great place for photos and teaching your children about it's origins.

Teotihuacan is about an hour or so outside of Mexico City. This is the site of the massive ruins of the pre-Columbian period indigenous people of Mexico.
The ruins are spectacular and fascinating to see, with the large scale city that used to be here. The pinnacle of these ruins are the two large pyramids built here. The Sun and the Moon Pyramids.
You can take guided tours of the ruins, and you can climb up the Pyramids to the top. But be careful, because you are already over a mile above sea level, so climbing up the Sun Pyramid can take its toll out of you, especially if you are not young or in good health.. There is a guide rope that you can hang on to to help you make the journey up. Great views of the entire complex from the top.

Well obviously if you are coming to San Juan you are visiting Teotihuacan, and Teotihuacan is definitely worth the visit. It is one of the most important ancient sites, and was a city that would have rivaled any city in antiquity
