Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Get some cultural insight at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) and Palacio de Bellas Artes. Step off the beaten path and head to Coyoacan and Chapultepec Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mexico City: Tepozteco (in Tepoztlan), Robert Brady Museum (in Cuernavaca) and Xochicalco (in Miacatlan). Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Cumbres Del Ajusco National Park. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Museo del Templo Mayor, contemplate the long history of Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, make a trip to Paseo de la Reforma, and admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).
