The Great Pyramid is indeed the pyramid with the largest base in the world, in underground of curse but still is worth to see it! Is a lovely walk around the pyramid with the market with traditional mexican handcrafts, then going up to the hill, is a small hike to discover on the top of the pyramid is a tiny... More

This is an amazing spot not only do you get to hike up to a church built on top of a pyramid but then you get to walk through/under that very same pyramid! The little town itself is a bit too touristy for me personally but there is an amazing craft beer spot nearby called the Beer Box so enjoy... More

Really this is a very interesting place with genuine history. I do recommend that if you don't use a guide, do some research before you go so that you can truly appreciate the experience and understand what is there and the story behind it. What makes this place great is that you can actually go inside the pyramid and walk... More

It was my first visit to this archeological treasure!!! When you purchase your ticket ($65 pesos for people 12 and up) you will have access to the museum, tunnels, the structures in the back yard, and up to the church. The tunnels are an amazing experience. They are lit and we felt very safe. We got a tour guide that... More

I went in the month of July and have to say it was very beautiful. To get to the church on top of the pyramid there is a small walk up a hill. A little trying but definitely worth it. The scene from the top is beautiful, you are able to see the town and beyond. I also recommend going... More

An interesting part of history. Worth spending a day free to go up to the church but a bit confusing to get down to the ruins

Very interesting tour. We book an english guide at the ticket office. The guide was very informative and spoke good english. Lots of history of the local peoples. The tour included the pyramid, a small museum, and the archeological site.

Walk up to the top of the church and you will be rewarded with amazing views all the way around, literally appearing to see forever. Beautiful church, and the archeology grounds are well maintained and easy to walk around.

Okay. This is definitely worth the visit, for sure. The archeological site is very nice and quite interesting, and walking through the tunnels is very cool, but, the pyramid itself doesn't LOOK as impressive as it really is. It's huge (in width, not height) but you can only see a part of it. You can climb it though, which is... More

This is a great place to learn about the history of the Indians that lived in that area. If you are going to this Pyramid, it is recommend to go the museum of this pyramid before going into the attraction
