Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Visit Templo Mayor Museum and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Frida Kahlo Museum and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia). Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: Cuernavaca (Robert Brady Museum & Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco), Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan) and Paso de Cortes (in Amecameca). Spend the 2nd (Tue) exploring nature at El Chico National Park. There's lots more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Bosque de Chapultepec, contemplate the long history of Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Chapultepec Park, and ponder the world of politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional).

If you are flying in from El Salvador, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Querétaro Intercontinental Airport and General Francisco J. Mujica International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Mexico City can reach 26°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
