  • What a great experience. So much to see. We planned about 4 hours but we could have easily done more. I wish the larger temples were still open to climb, but they are closed at this time. Parking and entry fees are reasonable. You can easily go on your own or with a tour group. The temple of Quetzalcoatl was open to climb and also then get up close to the intricate carvings. Awesome. There are multiple vendors for tourist stuff, food and other items. Bathrooms were in acceptable condition. We got there early (8am) it was quiet then and vendors were still setting up. By 9am, the place was humming! Bring a jacket and a hat. If you don't have a hat they have 20000 there that they will try to sell you! 😆
  • Bring pesos to go to the bathrooms! My group chose to go on a tour, not sure if there are tour options in English, but our tour guide provided excellent commentary and knowledge of the pyramids so I highly recommend getting a tour if you speak Spanish. Wear comfortable shoes, especially if you want to walk the whole walkway or go up the pyramids. Also bring a hat, sunscreen, and water! I visited in December and it was so hot, it felt like a summer day. There are some parts that have stairs and no ramps for strollers or wheelchairs so keep that in mind if you are visiting with babies or wheelchair users.
