The gate is closed ! None inside, place abandoned...

Tried to stay here, gate was locked, with nobody around. Maybe low season?

We stayed one night for 100Pesos/2persons in our Pickup camper;

Really next to entrance 3 and 2 to the pyramids. 100 Pesos for 2 persons in a camper. Parking at the Pyramids would cost 45 Pesos. The place is really run down and I don't want to describe the toilets!

Report Check-In

50 pesos/nuit et par adulte. Ça fait l’affaire pour une nuit mais pas exceptionnel ni très propres. Les tables de pic-nic menacent de s’écrouler. Mais pratique à côté du site archéologique.

Report Check-In

Perfect location to visit the archeological site (were almost alone on a Monday at 8h). Guard dogs are tied up at the front gate, so parked in the back and let our dog explore there a bit. The non-flush toilets are dirty, and there is indeed some trash lying around, but almost not worth mentioning, overall the place had a pleasant feel. 50 pesos pp.

I think its the best option to camp if you want to see the pyramids. you can see the pyramids from the campground. the family is very nice. you walk 350 meters to the entrance of the pyramids. you pay 50 pesos per person but you safe the parking fee from the pyramids, which is a plus. they have guard dogs and its fenced, so very safe. also, they live there aswell.

only negative thing: trash was lying around and everything is pretty worn down. toilets were rough too. but hey, 50 pesos...

Un parking en herbe avec sites de pique -nique et restaurant. 50 mxn/ nuit/ adultes, gratuit pour les enfants. Fermé et gardé la nuit avec chien.

Report Check-In

Cosy place with a lot of spots. The owner is very kind. There are restrooms, trees for shade and great view for the sunset. Just next to the piramide.

Report Check-In

The entry might be a little run down, but this place is perfect. The owners and their family are very helpful.

You can park here in a gated area where they will watch your car.

It is a few minutes walk to the pyramids and museums.

The food is great.

Try the pulque. It's a fermented alcoholic drink that is pretty good in our opinion.

There are plenty of flat spaces to camp, in a vehicle or on the ground.

Report Check-In

Perfect. Toilets pretty grim but the restaurant is really good. Still 50ppp.

Report Check-In

We came ard midday, visited the pyramid from gate 2. It was Sunday so it was crowded but we did not pay the entry fees(may be we got lucky). Queue was long to climb up the pyramid of sun. It was a nice place.

Exit from gate 3 - few mins walk to the campsite. It was quiet at night except some fireworks far away. We paid 100 pesos for 2.

Report Check-In

Still open, still as described. They close the door around sunset but they live on the premises; so just honk your horn or call.

Report Check-In

That place is perfect for visiting the Pyramids and it’s still open! Maybe you have to call „hello“ at the gate if it is closed. We paid 50 Peso per person and night. No problem with dogs at all.

Report Check-In

was locked with no sign of anyone nearby. we drove to a nearby row of restaurants across from gate 2 and overnighted in the large parking lot.

Report Check-In

As described. Really convenient place. 50 pesos per person. the toilets are not so bad, it's just pit toilets and seats were clean. we ate there, it was good too. in addition, it's really close walking to the gate 2.

Report Check-In

Not that bad here at all. It's very close to Entrance 2. No need to pay parking 45 Pesos there. Only 75 Pesos pp to get in. Camping is 50 pp. Didn't ask money for the car. Campground is easy accessible for all rigs. Green grassy area to camp with shady places all day. You even have some view. There is no water. Toilets are drop-off types. So here they smell and don't look nice. If you want, they make you food or you walk a little distance to find a restaurant. Lots of them around. We enjoyed a quiet and peaceful friday - and saturday night. In the early morning the sky is scattered with hot air balloons. There is a local free and open wifi service but very slow. In the early morning you have the chance of checking your email. Don't expect too much.

Sicherer Platz aber ohne Bad oder Dusche.Nah am Eingang.

50 pesos per adult but you save on the parking for the ruins (45). Easy to walk to gates 2 and 3. Visit of the site can be done in less than 3 hrs (we started with gate 2 and finished at the 3).
The lady who own the place, also makes the food at the small comedor, which look delicious. The restrooms are very basics, without any water on site.
Security guy was an old man of over 60-70 yrs old and only one other camper was there with us.
Close to the road, trafic all night.

Guter Platz mit Sicht auf die Sonnenpyramide, man kann Teotihuacan in 2 Minuten zu Fuss besuchen, liegt genau zwischen Eingang 2 und 3. Platz kostet 50 P/P und 20 P für den Camper, zahlten 300 Pesos für 3 Nächte.

next to the entrance of the pyramids. Very basic place but with a lot of space for our kids and the dog to play. We enjoyed it. A lot of restaurants in walking distance. Be careful of the very long and high topes at the whole street along the pyramids.
