    Camera's fee

    by pencho15 Updated Aug 5, 2009

    Photo Equipment: Just a warning, if you want to take a video camera or a profesional photographic camera into the archeological zone you will have to pay an extra fee at the entrance.
    There is no problem for regular cameras

    Clothes in Teotihuacán

    by pencho15 Updated Aug 5, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you want to go to Teotihuacán you should wear fresh clothes. i've been there five times and usually the weather is hot and dry.
    You should also take a hat to cover you from the sun and sunglasses to protect your eyes.
    The archeological zone is big and if you want to have a complete visit you will have to do a lot of walking so you should also take comfortable shoes, if you don't your feets will hurt by the end of the day, the last time i was there it was forbidden to enter the temples with high heels.

    Be prepared

    by malianrob Written Sep 20, 2008

    Luggage and bags: I only brought my purse but I should have brought a back pack and put some waters in there and a quick snack. Climbing the Piramides can be exhausting. Inside the runs they dont sell food or drinks.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Take an umbrella just in case because it rain alittle more here than in Mexico City. It will rain very hard and alot then sudeenly stop. If it starts to rain while you are climbing the ruins be very careful because you could slip.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring sun screen even if you dont see too much sun. There really isnt any shade here at all

    Photo Equipment: Obviously bring the camera with alot of room on your memory stick because you have an opportunity to take so many pictures here.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Wear good hiking shoes if you plan to climb the Ruins. Or at least wear tennis shoes.

    Miscellaneous: My advice would be to layer up here. When we arrived, it was chilly then as we climbed it got very hot and the sun was just beatting down on us. Then it rained very hard. Thank goodness we werent on top of the piramide at this time. Then it got hot again.

    Hat and bottled water

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Photo Equipment: Polarizer if you have an SLR because it gets quite dusty.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: as mentioned under Warnings, the sun is strong at Teotihuacan so be sure to bring water and a hat/cap. if not, you can always buy a one from the shops before the main entrance for USD 2.

    Beware of the sun!

    by karelia78 Written May 12, 2007
    Bring your hat, sunglasses and sunscreen

    Luggage and bags: A small backpack is fine, I even just carried a handbag.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes, you'll be climbing lots of steps. Make sure to bring a hat, otherwise you can buy one at the entrances. But DO WEAR one, as the sun is really really strong, even on cloudy days. Also plenty of water and SUNSCREEN!!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Clean toilet facilities are available.

    Photo Equipment: Good zoom and wide angles are great.

    No hat + no water= death!

    sun is pretty, and pretty deadly

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Don't worry, it will be sunny when you're here. The altitude and clear and dry air will only exascerbate the sun's effects on you. Bring and use a hat, any hat. Your head will thank you later that night and the following week, believe me! ;-) And with all the tramping around pyramids and up and down aged stones and steps, common sense (remember that?) dictates good walking shoes...although I swear I saw some nitwit fashion girls in heels. The morons.

    Photo Equipment: You don't want to be buying overpriced batteries or compact flash chips or film that's been hanging out in the sun at the vendors' booths so long they've become faded, do you? Bring more than you'll need from home!

    Miscellaneous: WATER, WATER, WATER!!! This is the desert, for crying out loud, at a higher altitude than Denver!!!
