Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Let the collections at Templo Mayor Museum and Frida Kahlo Museum capture your imagination. Visit Zocalo and Chapultepec Castle for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mexico City: Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan (in San Juan Teotihuacan) and Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve (in Sian Ka'an). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, explore the ancient world of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), get a sense of history and politics at Palacio Postal, and steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.

In January, daily temperatures in Mexico City can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
