    The Pyramids Of Mexico

    Have you ever been to the pyramids in Mexico? I love pyramids and have always wanted to see one up close. To go inside one would just be so cool to me.

    How are the pyramids as far as a nice tourist attraction? I mean are there places to stay that are nice, places to eat around them and other things to do? I would love to plan a trip there, tho probably once things calm down in Mexico a little bit.

    Are the pyramids in a part of Mexico that is safe for tourists? I don't know much about them but what I have seen on TV and most of the pyramids they show on TV are the ones in Egypt. At some point in my life I really want to see the pyramids in Mexico so any information that you can give me would be great, thank you

    I did a really amazing day trip to Tulum to see the ruins there. It's right near the water, so it was a beautiful spot, and the structures were really great. If you're going all the way to Mexico to see pyramids, Tulum would be a great addition to your trip. I was nearby on a cruise, so I'm not sure how far it is to other places, but it's quite close to Cancun.

    Are you talking about the Pyramids of Teotihuacan? If so, this is indeed an magnificent site! The larges pyramid in this ancient complex the is called The Pyramid of the Sun. I want to note also that people have noticed similarities with the layout of Mexican, Egyptian and Chinese's Xi'an Pyramids as seen it the picture. How the similarities in layout came to be with 3 distant cultures is a great mystery of in itself. This is definitely one of the places I have to see before I die.

    Its interesting to notice the similar layout when viewing the pyramids in Egypt and pyramids of Mexico from above. Both resemble the placement of stars in the Orion constellation with amazing accuracy. Coincidence? Another good reason to visit both pyramid complexes.

    This is what I'm taking about.

    The first pyramid complex in grey is the Chinese's Pyramid of Xian.

    The Central/South American pyramids tend to be steps versus actual pyramids. They also tend to be rather smaller in size, but they are also rather surprisingly better preserved in nature.

    I've never actually heard about the pyramids in Mexico, so now I am fascinated. I know they have interesting soap operas and exquisite cuisine so now I have another reason to add Mexico to my destination wish list.

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    My mom has, she says they're amazing, and there is an air of mysticism surrounding them. They seem to be like the center of mysticism in Mexico in general, a lot people see that place like a place where a lot great things are supposed to happen. Plus there are many mysteries that haven't even been revealed yet. But all in all I'd recommend everyone who has the chance to just go and check this amazing place!

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    I've never seen the pyramids, none of them, but I watch all sorts of documentaries and some of them are fascinating. The latest I've watched tried to prove that there was an energetic communication between the pyramids around the world and that the ancient civilizations used electrical power. It sounds crazy but they do have some very convincing arguments that sustain their theories. I would definitely like to visit the pyramids some day and I find the ones in Mexico the most interesting.

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    I think I watched a very similar documentary, Amalia. A documentary claiming some sort of extraterrestial life is linked to the existence of all the pyramids around the world, and they were built for a very specific reason. It has something to do with energy, because those places are known for having a really specific kind of energy.

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    That's the one, but things sounded strange enough, that's why I didn't mention the extraterrestrial help in building the network. I wouldn't go that far. I mean, why did they visit then, why not since? How come we've been to space and never saw any sign of them? I am sure the pyramids are built in very specific places and I don't think that anything about them is random. They were talking about the pyramids in Egypt as being used as tombs for pharaohs, which is the common explanation, but now they say they were a source of energy. Ok, but the pyramids in Mexico, from what I know, were built specifically as a source of energy, not as tombs. I would love to hear from the locals, I bet they can clear at least some things out for me.

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    Amalia, I grew up in Mexico... the mayans built the pyramids to worship their ''Gods'', they even sacrificed people there as an offering to their ''Gods''. Actually hwen they say the first spaniard; ''cortez'' the aztec king thought this man was the reincarnation of ''quetzalcoatls'' himself. Of course he wasn't, but took advantage of it. The spaniards abolished the sacrifices, and imposed the catholic religion and that's how all those mass sacrifices were stoped. It must have been such a gruesome image for the spaniards to see all those headless bodies piled near the cities... it was nuts back then, believe me!

    Re: The Pyramids Of Mexico

    Just some days ago I was watching an interesting documentary about Hernán Cortés where a researcher was revealing interesting facts that unveils the human side of this conqueror and his lover for Mexico, distorted by historians picturing him as the enemy to fight.

    But the interesting fact here based on you comment about the gruesome image of the human sacrifices that Spaniards witnessed is the nonsense pointed at this documentary.

    While human sacrifices were gruesome to their eyes, in Spain they were "sacrificing" people too by sending them to the Spanish Inquisition to be burnt or tortured, as later happened in Mexico when The Inquisition was installed.

    Now, back on topic to pyramid. It's important release that the different pyramids in Mexico were built for different precolonial cultures, those of Yucatán and surroundings, often compared with the pyramids of Egypt were the Mayans legacy, but other pyramids like those of Teotihuacán were erected by Teotihucanos, the pyramid of Tajín by Olmecas, and so on.

    Curiously, all of them have an orientation that it's said that coincide with a mystical trace because the cusp of all pyramids of the world are interconnected.

    Have to find the reading where I found such fact.

    I know everything about the Spaniard inquisition How wouldn't I know? I'm a Sephardic Jew. My people were harassed and tortured during that time, and until this day I'm still living with the consequences of that.

    Mexico is a fascinating country, with a huge variety of cultural things to see and do with amazing history. After Egypt Mexico is second destination which have Pyramids attraction for there tourist. Teotihuacan Pyramids and ancient city are worth at least a two-hour visit. Huge pyramids in quite a desolate spot with cacti surrounding it. At durham bus transportation I was thinking about my Mexico travel. I climbed the pyramid of the Sun and after that the pyramid of the Moon for a wonderful view of this enormous old city.

    This place is one of those places where you can feel the time connecting you with the past... to a very distant past. And try to abstract yourself from the people there, try to breath and hear the wind. It is unique. Don't forget to carry a hat, sunblocker, water and comfort shoes, camera and selfie stick are good idea.

    Chichen Itza is one of my favorite attractions of Mexico. I explored this place few years ago during my Mexico trip. It is one of the famous and most visited attractions of this country that is very famous among the history lovers.
    I have plan to enjoy a west coast tour usa in coming month with my family.

    They feel like a thing which is quite sensibly and also to me in such areas Bus tour packages to Niagara Falls would always find the best possible thing because it carries the most sensibly understanding in it and that is one of the activities which can be taken to another level with it.

    The Great Pyramid (Calakmul) and Pyramid of the Magician (Uxmal) both are well designed and very nice place for the travelers.

    I just have been in Mexico once in my life and had a great time there. I was there when my father was busy with niagara falls package tour. I simply enjoy there a lot and explored some of the fantastic places for having some fun there around.
