A must-see if you are in Mexico city. A place so abundant and rich with history and culture. Great for photos, and a even a good workout! Try making your way up to the top of the pyramids. The Pyramid of the Sun will absolutely blow you away. So extremely large (the SAME diameter as the largest pyramid in Giza), I could not make it to the top when I visited as a child. But if you do, I bet you will enjoy the view of the area.

I don't understand why so many people write Wikipedia articles instead of reviews.
This place was amazing. I went there on a cool, cloudy, summer day - luckily, because you can walk for hours and not realize how far you've gotten from where you started. We climbed every pyramid we could, sat and stared at the sky and town, and explored some of the smaller buildings and maze like structures. As is the norm for the area in summer, it started to rain really heavy by the time we had reached the end of our walk and not having realized how far we walked, we had to find a cab back to take us our car. Luckily there were plenty. The vendors were friendly and left us alone most the time, we even had to approach them for waters.

This archaeological site is a huge and impressive site, home to two of the largest pyamids in Latin America: Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon. At it's peak, around 450 AD, it was one of the largest cities ever built in Mesoamerica, with over 200,000 inhabitants. Today, it is a popular day trip from Mexico City, just 30 miles away. Get here right at opening (7am Tues-Sun) to see most of the site before the mid-day heat sets in and to avoid the crush of tourists that arrive around 11am. Sundays are especially crowded--try visiting on a weekday instead. Admission is around $5.

Built between 100 BC and 250 AD, Teotihuacan was the largest city in meso-america, and one of the largest in the world. Built by predecessors to the Mayas and Aztecs, their highly developed civilization greatly influenced all of the cultures of meso-america.

Here's my dream, were I to become a billionaire with a giant private island of my own: Create not hotels but eras, where you could check in to, say, ancient Rome or the Gilded Age or pre-Columbian Mexico for a week and see what it was like to live in those times and places.
You get a sense of that at Teotihuacan. The ancient (2100 years or so old) city is extremely well-preserved. Hire a knowledgeable guide and get a detailed tour of what life would have been like in one of the largest cities in the world circa 100AD.

These ruins are some of the most remarkable in Mexico and important in the world. It is only 30 miles from Mexico City and a number of tour companies will take you there. You can walk everywhere over the site even to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun (third-largest pyramid in the world) so bring good walking shoes. Also, the souvenir vendors can be somewhat annoying but I guess it's just part of the local culture.
