Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Step off the beaten path and head to Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco and Museo Memoria y Tolerancia. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mexico City: Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan (in San Juan Teotihuacan) and Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), don't miss a visit to Virgin of Guadalupe, get engrossed in the history at Templo Mayor Museum, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.
