Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: San Juan Teotihuacan (Pyramid of the Sun & Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan) and Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve (in Sian Ka'an). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), contemplate the long history of Chapultepec Castle, ponder the world of politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), and appreciate the extensive heritage of Zocalo.

To see reviews, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Mexico City itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Licenciado Adolfo Lopez Mateos International Airport and Querétaro Intercontinental Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 56°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
