Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Get a sense of the local culture at Templo Mayor Museum and Zocalo. Get some historical perspective at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe. Go for a jaunt from Mexico City to San Juan Teotihuacan to see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan about 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Frida Kahlo Museum, explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, and get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional).
