Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Shop till you drop at Coyoacan and Origen Mexico Artesanias. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Chapultepec Park and Frida Kahlo Museum. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Historic Center (Centro Historico), explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.
