Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Visit Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and Chapultepec Castle for their historical value. Palacio de Bellas Artes and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Mexico City to go to San Juan Teotihuacan and see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of Templo Mayor Museum, buy something for everyone on your list at Coyoacan, see the interesting displays at Museo Dolores Olmedo, and don't miss a visit to Inmobiliaria Paseo de la Reforma.

In July, daily temperatures in Mexico City can reach 27°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
