  • Pyramid of the Moon

    Teotihuacán Things to Do

    Impressive but the smaller of the 2 major pyramids at Teotihuacan. This one is harder to climb however due to taller and steeper stairs. Climbing it is well worth the effort as it affords great views over the site.

    more
  • Pyramid of the Sun

    Teotihuacán Things to Do

    This is the world's third largest pyramid. To climb to the top would involve a 124 m ascend. ropes along the stairs make this easier. When you reach the top, be sure to go to middle of the pyramid and look for a shiny white disc which denotes the center of the pyramid. Legend has it that by rubbing this disc, your wishes will come true. Good luck!
