Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mexico City: Cuernavaca (Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco & Robert Brady Museum) and Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan (in San Juan Teotihuacan). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, make a trip to Zocalo, and admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).

For more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Mexico City road trip planner.

Berlin, Germany to Mexico City is an approximately 17-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of flight, taxi, bus, and tram. You'll gain 7 hours traveling from Berlin to Mexico City due to the time zone difference. In November, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 11°C.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling & Quinta Avenida) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's lots more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, kick back and relax at Playa Norte, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and stroll through Playa Tortugas.
