I got to visit teotihuacan back in 2004 during the peace & dignity journeys. I think we spent two or three days there with special permission. Just being there one could feel intense energy. On my way to the restroom one night, I noticed the moonlight intensely shining down on the piramide de la luna. It was breathtaking. I plan to visit again this month!over 5 years ago
The sheer scale of this place is awesome, the bus ride out from Mexico City passes through some interesting suburbs, and once you get there you can have lunch at an underrated little snack bar that offers very cold beer and good sincronizadas (ham n’ cheese quesadillas).
Oh, yeah, and there are also some large groups of new-age hippie types in white robes apparently worshipping ancient Aztec deities. Didn’t observe any human sacrifices, however.
Those pyramids are harder to climb than they look, by the way — not for the fearful of heights.over 5 years ago
Man, this place is breath taking! it truly is a wonder to see. I went all the way up to one of the pyramids, I think it was the moon one, and the view from up there was: wow. And to think that people like us, without technollogy or any of the tools we now have built this. There is also a really cool museum explaining how everything was built.over 5 years ago
