Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Cumbres Del Ajusco National Park. The adventure continues: explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Templo Mayor, don't miss a visit to Zocalo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.
