Mexico City

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Templo Mayor Museum and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia). Your inner history buff will appreciate Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan. There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Coyoacan, make a trip to Zocalo, examine the collection at Frida Kahlo Museum, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Chapultepec Park.

To find maps, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Mexico City custom trip planner.

Playa del Carmen to Mexico City is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of ferry, taxi, and flight. You can also do a combination of bus and tram; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Playa del Carmen to Mexico City. In June, Mexico City is a bit cooler than Playa del Carmen - with highs of 28°C and lows of 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
