Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Explore hidden gems such as Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 and Murales de Diego Rivera en la Secretaria de Educacion Publica. Shop till you drop at Polanco and Iconico. Venture out of the city with trips to Piramide de la Serpiente Emplumada (in San Juan Teotihuacan) and Convento Agustino (in Malinalco). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), get engrossed in the history at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, see the interesting displays at Museo Frida Kahlo, and admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes.
