Bosque de Chapultepec reviews
Good place to run or fun you don't need money to enter and enjoy the stay there are a lot of thing hide inside the forest and you should try to find them :) more »
This free park is great for a run or walk in, spot some squirrels or bring food and have picnic, there is also food stalls near Lake more »
A must see if you're visiting Mexico! There are museums, a castle, markets, food stalls, squirrels and lots of beautiful water fountains and peaceful areas. There's also a lake where you can paddle boat, which we did but it was quite hard to paddle and exhausted us quickly. My favourite place in Mexico City!
This is a must visit. Mexico City's Central Park. The forest is packed with things to do from traditional street food vendors to fine dining. There's a zoo, a botanical garden, and lakes. There are several museums including two former presidential residencies, one of them is the White House equivalent and the other is a castle! There's also a kid's science museum and the anthropology and history museum where you can see the original Aztec calendar. There's also an amusement park.
