Mexico City

City of Palaces

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 Frida Kahlo capture your imagination. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, stop by La Condesa, don't miss a visit to Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaria de Educacion Publica, and take an in-depth tour of Memory and Tolerance Museum.

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

Guayaquil, Ecuador to Mexico City is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also fly. Traveling from Guayaquil to Mexico City, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.

Tailor-made for anyone seeking that traditional sun-and-sand experience, Mexico vacations allow visitors to explore nearly 10,000 km (6,200 mi) of picturesque coastlines. Idyllic beaches and favorable year-round weather aside, this diverse country with a rich pre-Colombian history allows tourists a chance to discover a fascinating cuisine, numerous archaeological sites, state-of-the-art museums, colonial-era haciendas, and outstanding examples of 21st-century architecture. Most visitors get to know the country by its cities, but if you want a well-rounded Mexico tour, spend some time exploring its jungles, cloud forests, Caribbean reefs, snowcapped volcanoes, vast deserts, and tranquil lagoons. Life is lived outdoors in Mexico, so wherever you go, don't forget to dine alfresco and stroll the country's colonial streets.
