days
Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Step out of Mexico City with an excursion to Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan in San Juan Teotihuacan--about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, take in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, and steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Mexico City travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Licenciado Adolfo Lopez Mateos International Airport and Querétaro Intercontinental Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
