Mexico City

Mexico City ©
Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Plaza Garibaldi, Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, Floating Gardens of Xochimilco, and other attractions. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Museo del Tiempo Tlalpan and Museo Nacional De Arte. Let the collections at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Museo Memoria y Tolerancia capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, stop by La Condesa, see the interesting displays at Museo Frida Kahlo, and take a stroll through San Angel.

To plan Mexico City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Guayaquil, Ecuador to Mexico City is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Traveling from Guayaquil to Mexico City, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Guayaquil in September, expect Mexico City to be a bit cooler, temps between 26°C and 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Taxco.
