Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Explore Mexico City's surroundings by going to San Juan Teotihuacan (Piramide de la Serpiente Emplumada & Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5) and Puebla (Church of Santo Domingo (Iglesia de Santo Domingo) & Rosary Chapel (Capilla del Rosario)). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, explore the ancient world of Museo del Templo Mayor, explore the striking landscape of Bosque de Chapultepec, and step into the grandiose world of Chapultepec Castle.

Palenque remains best known for the nearby ruins of an ancient Mayan city, which probably flourished around the 7th century CE.
Change things up with a short trip to Tonina in Ocosingo (about 2 hours away). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Zona Arqueologica de Palenque, admire the sheer force of Welib Ja Waterfalls, explore the activities along Agua Clara, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Aluxes Palenque.
