Guide or no guide

  • Whether to get a guide or not that's totally up to you, however, Teotihuacan is relatively vast and you may consider getting a guide who'll take you through. If you don't have a guide make sure you visit the following sites.
  1. The pyramid of the sun - It's the largest pyramid here. If you don't mind the stairs(250) go up.
  2. The pyramid of the moon - smaller than the pyramid of the sun but you can see the whole of Teoticuahan from here.
  3. The avenue of the dead
