Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Museo Trick Eye and El Rollo Parque Acuatico. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mexico City: Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 (in San Juan Teotihuacan), El Nido (in Ixtapaluca) and Grutas La Estrella (in Ixtapan de la Sal). There's still lots to do: stroll around Bosque de Chapultepec, see the interesting displays at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, step into the grandiose world of Chapultepec Castle, and admire the landmark architecture of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).
