Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5. Step out of the city life by going to Bosque de Chapultepec and La Condesa. Venture out of the city with trips to El Nido (in Ixtapaluca) and Robert Brady Museum (in Cuernavaca). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Museo del Templo Mayor, take a stroll through Historic Center (Centro Historico), see the interesting displays at Museo Frida Kahlo, and step into the grandiose world of Chapultepec Castle.
