Climbing the Pyramids

On our trip to Mexico City, we had to visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan. We were excited to be outdoors and see such an impressive location! It was just as amazing as we had hoped, despite the holiday crowds. It was quite the trek between the pyramids but definitely worthwhile.

  • It is super hot there and there is no shade, so: sunscreen, and lots of it, is a must!
  • Also, water! Take plenty of water with you!
  • And snacks! While they let lots of souvenir vendors in, there was a serious lack of food.
  • Comfortable shoes, should be obvious, but they weren't to the lady with 4" heels in front of us.
  • A baby carrier: again, should be obvious, but you are climbing up tall and narrow steps; there's no stroller friendly passageway.
  • Lastly, read up before hand since there's very minimal signage. We were glad to have been to the Anthropology Museum beforehand where we learned all the relevant history
