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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Historic Center (Centro Historico). Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Polanco and Arto Otra. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mexico City: Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 (in San Juan Teotihuacan) and Cuernavaca (Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco & Robert Brady Museum). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, explore the ancient world of Museo del Templo Mayor, take in the spiritual surroundings of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), and steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.

Cancun

Few destinations in Mexico dazzle visitors quite like Cancun, a modern resort town filled with glitzy hotels sitting on picturesque and well-developed Caribbean beaches.
We've included these beaches for you: Akumal Beach and Playa Norte. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like La Isla Shopping Village and Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado. Get out of town with these interesting Cancun side-trips: Punta Sur (in Isla Mujeres), Puerto Morelos (Spas & Tequila Factory Cancun) and Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Quinta Avenida, &more). There's still lots to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, tee off at Cancun Golf Club at Pok-Ta-Pok, explore the galleries of Galeria Balance Cancun, and hunt for treasures at Mercado 28.

For other places to visit, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cancun trip itinerary maker.
