Unfortunately due to the earthquake damage was done to the Pyramid. However, we were able to enter through the incredible tunnel to view the grounds at the base. We plan to return in Jan 2018. This is a wonder not to be missed if you...More

The pyramid tunnels were worth the experience. The church at the top is currently closed because of the latest earthquake. The large museum is also closed because of the same reason but you can visit the grounds and read all of the well written history....More

This is a great place to visit if you are in Cholula, it is very close to the church which I would also recommend visiting. You can go inside the pyramids, if you don't like being in enclosed spaces I would not recommend this. Around...More

This is a nice little day trip from Puebla. You can take the bus from the Cholula Bus station on Avenida 6 /Calle 13. I entered the site using the tunnel entrance, which would have been great except for the Tourist Guides doing their business....More

Beautiful relic of the past. Though I caution that if you are claustrophobic, you may kind of freak out as I did and I have mild/average claustrophobia. The walk through the pyramid is about 10 mins with low traffic, longer if there are tour groups...More

I'm 6'3" and not overweight and the tunnels under the pyramid, while well preserved made me extremely claustrophobic for some reason. Several times I almost turned around and went back out the entrance. Fortunately it was crowed and I basically ran through the tunnels to...More

I think as a day trip, it is impossible to fit Cholula pyramid in. But historically it is amazing to wonder how such a large structure escaped the knowledge of the Spaniard when they built the church at its peak, and how so much soil...More

We were expecting a lot more - even through the book did say that it was all covered in grass. A shame because it could be anything. The Church at the top is beautiful and you have good views of city.

Yes, this pyramid has since grown over and looks like a large hill. But walking through the middle of it is awesome. There are an extended series of tunnels in the pyramid and the path that you can walk through is extensive. The views from...More
