A challenging hike up. The guard at the top will tell you how much you have climbed. (1200 feet) Quite a view. We went on Sunday. No 42 peso charge. You will not be alone. Amazing view.

I probably enjoyed this site as much as teotihuacan, but for different reasons. All I knew when going there is that there was a pyramid. Really enjoyed looking around in the market. Nothing extraordinary, but still charming. Enjoyed Mass as the old convent church, especially...More
