Awesome hike with great shopping and food on the way. Be a local and eat like a local in the indigenous market.

It's a nice, relatively demanding hike to get up there. At a good pace it can take 35-45 minutes. You don't have to drive to the base either- we walked there from the town. It offers a really nice view of the valley and it...More

At the base of the trail up to the pyramid there was a restaurant which looked like it had lovely views. If I'd had more time before catching my bus back to Mexico City I would have tried there.
